We had something in that’s a bit different from the norm. This Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was in for an exterior enhancement and interior detail. The paint on this proved to be a bit more involved than we thought as some areas of the car were lacquered while others were painted with two pack paint.

We started with the interior and took out as much of the seats as possible, this was made a bit easier as the seat bases just come right out of the car. All the leather was deep cleaned and conditioned as this car was from a time when real leather was used in interiors. The carpets and sheepskin mats were deep cleaned to remove years of dirt and grime to bring them back to their factory fresh feeling and look.
Once the interior was completed the car was taken out and prepped for polishing, this included a deep wash, de-tarring of the body and wheels followed by de-ironing and claying of all surfaces, including the glass. When this was complete the car was brought into our detailing booth and polishing began. We found a medium polish on a heavy polishing pad followed by a light jeweling step on a D/A to remove any polishing haze as the paint was reasonably soft. The car was rewashed and left unsealed as the owner wanted the paint as naked as possible as he was unsure how the older paints would react with modern waxes or sealants.
The Rolls was now ready for the owners use upon his return to the country to continue enjoying for many years to come.
