Rolls Royce Drophead Coupe Correction

I did this car when it was new a little more than three years ago and have not done it since......well it picked up some "Patina".

27 hours later the vehicle is restored to "As new", below in the first pick is when I worked on the car as it was delivered new.



Here it is three years later.......













As the car came in at noon, there was no shade and now the weather is getting warm here so I wiped down the finish and decon/clayed with the wash reserved for after the compound stage.

The brightwork on the car was in horrible condition and needed a few hours just to correct this part of the car alone.



After......





Right side of brightwork before.



After.



Clarity restored....finally.



Trunklid compounding step 50/50.



Top right rear quarter before, almost looks like I sanded it......but I did not.



After compound step.



Entire trunklid cut.



Passenger door 50/50.

Who treats such a vehicle so poorly? Good to see you not only bring her back to better-than-new, but to see an owner who knows where to go for such work. Another knock-out by Auto Concierge.
