Unique Detail Vs Neglected 2002 Bentley

Hi All,

Just a quick post of this poorly neglected 2002 Bentley that we rejuvenated the paintwork on. more of a picture post than anything else as the paintwork was the only part of the car that we detailed over a period of 3 days.

Car on arrival after washing.







Once inside the workshop that car was clayed and panel wiped to assess the paintwork under lighting















Onto a few 50/50 shots as the car started to improve.













Wheels received a light machine polish as they had lost there gloss.



Rear bumper had seem some shody repair at some point, so this was flatted back using meguires 2000 grit paper paper and machined back up.



Not perfect but improved, picture was prior to refining stages.



And onto some finished shots, car was protected in the clients choice of Polishangel
Viking Shield.















If you got this far thanks for looking.

ATB
Andy

Such an utter disgrace to treat a car so appallingly, that colour is so beautiful when properly cared for, but I suppose the original owner/owners couldnt afford to have it cleaned properly

Good lords...... Fantastic turnaround and lets hope it's shown a little love now..

As an aside There was one of these parked at a horse-show we attended a few years ago, it was probably worse than that one outside and the owner let her two Jack Russel's virtually live in it, nearly every part of the interior, seats, dash, steering wheel was either chewed, ****ed on or shat on. It was completely heartbreaking and she couldn't have cared less....

Lovely colour and good work, at least on a Bentley there is usually a decent thickness of paint to work with, but why people neglect such cars is beyond me also, it obviously comes down to money and to them it's "just a car".
Nice turnaround.

Superb work, bet the customer was pleased. Which compounds/polish/pads did you use?

These ALWAYS look amazing. Not the car, they’re nice, but what you can do to them. I’d love to learn how to do it myself. Awesome work. What on earth had happened to it in that first photo?!
