3 Litre 1924 Bentley detailed by Marque One Detailing,
This car is a fully operational 3 Litre 1924 Bentley, which has some great tails of its journeys. This old lady has been in the clients family for a very long time, and was delivered to our detailing studio for one of our tailor-made Classic detailing packages.
This particular classic is part of a classic car collection, which consists of a Silver Shadow Rolls Royce’s and a Classic Bentley to name a few, that we have the privilege to look after.
Due to the condition of this classy lady, as well as getting an understanding of what the client is looking for.
As a result of our discussions, the client informed us that they wanted to be able to show this 3 Litre 1924 Bentley at shows and Concours events.
We agreed with the client a detailing package that not only meet the owners requirements, but also is sympathetic to the age and condition of this particular car.
A full 5 days of work was carried out on this classic 1924 Bentley, to bring it back to its former glory, but first we had to carry out our standard pre detailing inspection and preparation.
When this pre detailing inspection and been completed the following was then undertaken
We started with a deep cleaning operation due to years of muck and grease that had all built up, all of which was in need of a good clean.
These kinds of vehicles cannot be washed in the normal manner. So therefore, this has to be done in a slow and sympathetic way to ensure that irreputable damage is not done to the paint work, as well as the coach work and other delicate surfaces, which means that this is a very slow process.
The engine bay was fully degreased, and cleaned, as well as all of the brass and copper parts of the engine, were all cleaned and polished.
The Fenders were all polished, as well as the front wheels removed cleaned. The Leaf spring leather covers cleaned and protected. Roof cleaned and re-dyed, with 2 coats.
The wood was cleaned and waxed. Exhaust rubbed down/Keyed then high temp sprayed/ painted
All exterior metal work including the nose were fully cleaned and polished.
The exterior metal areas, as well as the green leather covering of the car’s cockpit was cleaned and polished.
It was important that we should keep the finish in keeping with the age of this particular Bentley, therefore in this particular case we were not looking for perfection on this lady, as the client wanted it to keep the old look but improve her.
