Detailer's Domain vs Bentley Turbo R SE #10 of 12

This job was done last year, guess it got lost in the mix. We spent a total of 80 hours or so over 7 days on this car. We restored the paint to like new conditions, the before pictures will show you all the burn marks, holograms, swirls, and damage left by the previous detailer. The interior was cleaned up, and the engine was done as well.

Take a look at what was done -

- Wheels were prepped with P21S Wheel Gel and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheels polished and protected with Swissvax Autobahn
- Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu
- 3 Step Paint correction (Power Gloss, SIP, and PO85RD)
- Inspection with various lights
- Swissvax Divine
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned

vinyl/plastic surfaces.
