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

Rolls Royce - Modern Car Renovation

Work in progress
So by the end of this first phase, the leather looked great, the wheels looked great, the sun roof was sorted out, and once given a coat of wax, the car looked good enough to turn heads.

Finished leather after connollising.

The car as completed so far.

Work yet to be done
We look forward to having the car back here in the winter when the rest of the work will be completed. As you can see on the photo below, there is a crease along the side crossing both door.

Dent on door requires bodyshop repair.
Crease across both doors will need to be repaired at a body shop.

There are some other bits of body work that need to be done including a scuff on the bumper pictured below, and some interior detail that needs attention. There is a scuff on the steering column, and the headlining is stained, probably by water from the leaky sun roof or windscreen.

Swirl marks

Although the car looks shiny in the photos, this is down to the wax -- on closer inspection the paintwork is covered in swirl marks or 'spider webs'. Once the bodywork is completed we will be able to carry out paintwork correction on the car, machine polishing it to a high shine.

positive feedback for valeting for Leather connollising "Hello Gary,
I have looked through the article and it is very good,
It gives a clear picture of the excellent work
completed to date and i look forward to completing the
refurb later in the year.

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.
