"The motor from Majorca don't look like
what it oughta!"

Rolls Royce - Modern Car Renovation

There was some damage to the glass. The windscreen had a couple of chips and somebody had thrown a brick at the rear near-side window and there was now a perfect outline of the projectile scuffed into the glass (see photo below).

Although chip repair in glass is something we can do at New Again, on this occasion we took the car to CCS windscreens because there was some work we weren't capable of doing. The afore mentioned side window needed replacing, and the windscreen was incorrectly fitted which they were able to rectify.

Chip in Windscreen.

CCS Windscreens are just down the road from us and we have been friendly with them for many years. As well as fitting replacement windscreens, they also do lots of tinted windows, sun roofs and more recently stone chip film. They used the latest high-pressure resin injection equipment to repair the two large windscreen chips and repaired and resealed the windscreen surround.

Normally if you have this kind of work that needs to be done, we will just refer you to the right people and you can take the car there yourself. But obviously, in this case the customer was in another country, so we are quite happy to manage this as a project, making sure that each job is sub-contracted to the right people, that it's completed to our exacting standards and done within the schedule.

Rusty Rolls Royce sun roof.

One of the good reasons we took the car to CCS Windscreens is that they know all about sun roofs, and the roof on this Rolls Royce had gone rusty and needed repair. This is not the kind of thing they normally do, or we normally do for that matter, but they were able to remove it for us so that we could take it to somebody who could.

Ask the Experts
 We are always happy to help, so please ask us your questions [more]

We have assembled a panel of experts from across the industry with a combined experience of over 200 years. You can find out about the experts here, and read the code of conduct they follow here.

Any questions sent to us are posted in the Q&A area of our site so that they can help other people... We do strip out any personal information but please put your e-mail or number ONLY in the correct fields so we can keep them hidden. Once we have answered your question, we will email you.

IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM US AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS... it may because our email to you ended up in your spam filter or was blocked by your mail server. You can always look on our Q&A section to see if your answer is there. We don't work Sundays or Bank Holidays, and it can take us a couple of days to catch up with enquiries at the beginning of the week. If you are in a hurry, you can always give us a call.

If you don't have a photo don't worry, you can still send us your question, just be aware that we may not be able to give you a good answer if we can't see what we are being asked about. If you can't supply a photo, please give us a description. You can also send us your photos and questions even if you have no intention of using our services. We don't mind at all!

Photo Tips - Try to get one good close up of any damaged area, and then one shot which clearly shows the location... try and get in the nearest 'landmark' like a wheel arch or headlamp. When taking photos of dents, try taking them from a distance and zooming in. Use the reflection of a wall or fence to help show the dents. If your camera has problem focusing on chips or scratches, stick a piece of tape next to the damaged area and focus in on that, this will also help us get an idea of scale. When sending us photos of wheels, send us examples of the worst of the damage and one full picture of the face of the wheel so we can see what kind of finish it has.

The more information we have, the easier it is to answer! So you can include information such as the age of your car, and even your location - after all we might be able to recommend somebody closer.

Posting Links Please avoid posting links to photos, it causes us problems! If you would like to show us a page on another website, please just paste in the URL address -- DO NOT use HTML or BB script to try and make it an active link, if you do your message will be rejected by our spam filter.

Notify me by text message when my question is answered.
