This was an enjoyable detail, it was lovely to work with something very different to what I usually see. Although the owner assured me that Rollers like this are more common than you think I’ve never had the chance to work on one previously. This lovely Rolls Royce Corniche is used as an occasional car and the owner hadn’t had it cleaned in a while. The aim was to freshen it up in time for the better Spring weather and get a layer of high quality durable wax on the paintwork to provide some much needed protection. After discussing the options we settled on an exterior Protection Detail with the addition of Autoglym Super Resin Polish to enhance the paint’s appearance before applying Collinite 476s as a long term sealant.

The work carried out was as follows;

  • Wheels Cleaned with Bilberry Acid Free Cleaner
  • Full External Wash (2 Bucket Method) with Autoglym Shampoo Conditioner
  • Tar & Iron Deposits Removed with Valet Pro Citrus
  • Dry With Deep Pile Microfibre Towels
  • Paint Enhancing Polish (Autoglym Super Resin) Applied to Exterior Panels and Chrome by Hand
  • One Layer of Collinite 476S Wax Sealant Applied to Paint as LSP
  • Wheels Sealed with Collinite 476S
  • Glass Cleaned with Sonax Glass
  • Tyres Dressed with FinishKare TopKote #108


Enough of the text, here are some before and after images to show the finish achieved:

Wow, it looks fantastic. I might drive it into town!
