Rolls Royce Dawn - Major Enhancement Detail - detailR - Buckinghamshire

This incredible Rolls Royce dawn was brought in to rejuvenate all areas of the car. The owner wanted it brought back to it's former glory.


The paintwork was treated to a Major Enhancement (multi-stage machine polish).
The convertible roof cleaned and protected.
The interior deep cleaned and protected.
Engine bay cleaned up and dressed.

Onto the car.
Generally, fairly tidy. Like most of these cars, it's not a daily driver - but does get used often, and washed at the local hand car wash.

The wheels were cleaned first with Auto Finesse Imperial.

Followed by Iron Out.

The roof was cleaned to remove the slight green tinge.

The car was blanketed with Avalanche snow foam to soften the dirt before the contact wash.

While that was dwelling, the nooks and crannies were agitated with detailing brushes.

This was pressure rinsed and followed with a 2 bucket method contact wash.

The bodywork is treated with fallout and tar removers, before being rinsed off and taken inside for clay bar treatment.

The car is then wiped down with IPA and delicate trims masked up for polishing.

Some photos before and after the cutting stage of machine polishing.

That little scratch was a little too deep.
It could've been chased out, but it wasn't worth sacrificing the clear coat this time round.

The colour was starting to come alive at this point.

Next, attention was turned to the interior.
It wasn't overly grubby to start, it just needed freshening up.

The seats and door cards were cleaned with ODK Refresh leather cleaner.
The carpets and floor mats were steam cleaned.

And after.

The front grill was polished.

Left side polished, right side un-polished.

20190607_165405 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

The engine bay was cleaned and dressed.

And dressed.

The paintwork was then refined, panel wiped and ready for ceramic coating.

SystemX Pro was applied to protected the paintwork.

20190611_122613 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

SystemX Pro was also applied to the wheel faces.
SystemX Glass applied to the exterior glass.
The interior and roof were also protected with SystemX.

The final result.

I'm guessing that the owner was impressed?
