Bentley Continental GT at MX Valeting

We booked this Bentley early in December.


Boi OH Boi this is one of the most beautiful car i'v ever detailed and i think after spending some time with it it is my favourite, the level of detail and thought that's in this car is something that needs to be appreciated, the british racing green paint alone is like nothing i'v ever seen it's slightly two toned and has zero orange peel it just smooth as silk, coat hanger inside is a sexy little piece it's solid aluminium and clicks into place like a well oiled short shifter http://i.imgur.com/Dfo8JBH.gif


So first thing was to drive it out to be cleaned, I snowfoamed with reflectology R1NE which removed the heavy dirt then i washed the body with my beloved Carpro wool wash mitt (have it almost two years now!) and R1NE again in my cheap ass 20 liter B&Q buckets :p


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0119_zps82af507c.jpg


After that i started on the 20 inch! wheels with Autosmart smart wheel followed by Autosmart fallout remover, inside and out got mega cleaning.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0130_zps17bd1822.jpg


I continued decontaminating the body with Autosmart tardis (tar remover) and Autosmart fallout remover this time applied by a wash mitt and agitating twice around the car before rinsing off


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0123_zpsc70dabfa.jpg


I finished the decontamination process with my clay cloth which revealed little to no contamination ... she's a protected garage queen you know ;)


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0128_zps9a5bb616.jpg


Finally I foamed the whole car to remove as much off the paint before drying.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0129_zps165456e3.jpg


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/IMG_0131_zps472e38b9.jpg


Now the paint was ready for some inspection, great levels across the whole car .... Bentley are very generous with paint :D


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9801_zpsd4ac1242.jpg


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9807_zps51fc95dd.jpg


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9802_zps1596d088.jpg


Next I inspected the paint under LED light to reveal any defects.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/bjBKf8P_zps051df22c.jpg


It was pretty much the same all over the car with the bonnet getting the most abuse from the local wash.


After two stages of machine polishing with Maxolen PM 1 and Carpro Reflect on Hex Logic green and black pads via my Flex X1107 i was left with this :eek:


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/10850181_828707363837124_4402740855678525991_n_zpsf4851b4d.jpg

The sun came out so i had to get it outside!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkbGARilFVA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I finished up polishing and noticed the Mulliner split rim lips were tarnished from either chemicals drying on the wheel or two strong a cleaner being used.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9812_zps1fc22d44.jpg


So i polished off that haze with autosol metal polish (GOD IS IN THE DETAIL)


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9814_zps8bc949b6.jpg


When I was cleaning the wheel I noticed how well the caliper came out (stop N style)


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9829_zpsd6bf397a.jpg

While i had the autosol out I decided to polish the aluminum door sills ans kick panels (no before picture but they really needed this)

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9834_zps85c19c38.jpg

Back onto the paint I decided to seal this piece of Art in Swissvax Best Of Show. I choose this wax because the car is garaged all year around so durability was not a concern. Best of show delivered super levels of gloss. :cool:(picture taken after application hence the dust)

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9825_zps0e5be5ae.jpg

On to the interior it was detailed with just as much love as the outside.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Bentley%20Continental%20GT%20Detail/DSCF9836_zps7538bb61.jpg

With the car finished I packed up and plugged the car back into the battery charger (that's why the booth is open).

Don't loose the highlighted washers.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/04-20150222_125435_zpsd1j9cigp.jpg

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/05-20150222_125528_zpsnit7hdeh.jpg

With some force pull the bearing up and out of it's housing.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/06-20150222_125546_zpsreirltvv.jpg

Old VS New

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/07-20150222_121622_zps7bvjjfo4.jpg

Below is a video on how to check the operation of the bearing.
Excess play and noise is sign of a bearing in need of a replacement.
left is the old worn bearing / right is the new unused bearing.

[BBvideo 425,350]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68dINnpBGJk[/BBvideo]

To refit or replace the bearing follow the above guide in reverse.

#2 - How to inspect and replace the carbon brushes.

First remove this screw from the back of the machine.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/29-20150222_125301_zpsr7dc5q7b.jpg

Now pull back the black section form the front red section, splitting the two housings.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/09-20150222_122009_zpsfxngtvva.jpg

Run the black housing down the lead and out of the way.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/10-20150222_122037_zpsdspjyokr.jpg

On the left and right sides of the machine you will see the brush mechanisms. Here the brushes are pushed onto the armature from the downward pressure of springs arm, they are connected to the electrical circuit with a female spade connector.
I will cover one side as the process is the same for both.

Unscrew the retaining screw.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/11-20150222_123111_zpsoezuymvh.jpg

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/12-20150222_123159_zpsqwb3g2sv.jpg

And pull up the mechanism and it's spacer.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/13-20150222_123226_zps2gakiedj.jpg

Bag all the removed parts. ****

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/14-20150222_123246_zpsxnhutcvw.jpg

This is the mechinisum removed to the side of the machine.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/16-20150222_123351_zpsqi0hpd6z.jpg

With force pull the spade connector away from the pin.
I had to use a screw driver to brake it free.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/17-20150222_123523_zpsbw1y7moa.jpg

Now pull up the brush by its wire out if it's housing.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/18-20150222_123607_zpsmaq70rk1.jpg

Good brushes should be flat and smooth, brushes that have corners chipped off are bad.

Left is the old brush right is the new brush

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/19-20150222_123817_zpszwphfr21.jpg

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/20-20150222_123844_zps0ba7d6kn.jpg

to refit or replace the brushes first the arm of the spring needs to moved out of the housing. Here i used a skewer, i cut the tip off so the top was flat, a butter knife is another idea.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/21-20150222_124157_zpsvbwjux6u.jpg

With the arm up now push it off to this side.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/22-20150222_124233_zpsl846lois.jpg

Now place the carbon brush into the housing.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/23-20150222_124351_zpsjhw995uu.jpg

reattach the spade connector and screw down the retaining screw.

To refit or mechanism follow the above guide in reverse. ****

#3 - How to fix a split flex leads.

One common problem with machine polishers is that the leads brake inside the flex, this happens mostly right it the back of the machine and this is due to the constant movement at that point, think of bending a piece of wire between you hands it will snap if you keep bending it in the same place.

This is the symptom of a brake in the leads of the flex.

OP is from Profiteering Forum



Using my DA earlier in the week and it has started to lose power once it changes angle.

[BBvideo 425,350]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZOPmNtW-64&feature=youtu.be[/BBvideo]

I have taken the back of and checked the connection of the wires going in. Nothing loose in there.

Any other ideas anyone?



With the black housing separated from the rest of the machine you can see the wire of the flex.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/30-20150222_124821_zps5swscvg7.jpg

remove the screws from the clamp

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/31-20150222_124843_zpslz4bqjue.jpg

follow the blue and brown wires into the machine.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/32-20150222_124912_zpsuzxlyico.jpg

Loosen the screw enough so you can remove the Banana Spade connector

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/33-20150222_124927_zps5ndkesks.jpg


Don't remove the screw as it will be difficult to refit

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/34-20150222_125147_zpscmptoxnm.jpg

From here cut the flex below the high lighted area about a hands width to be safe.

http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Kestrel%20DAS6%20DIY%20service%20and%20repair%20guide/1-20150222_124821_zpsgapzqylj.jpg

From here on you will have to let your electrical know how lead you on as i did not have the tools on hand to show the rest :(

I've learned alot from different forums and from here also, this is my way of paying it forward.

Thanks for looking.

New car protection detail and alloygator fitment in limerick

We had this new A3 S line in for a paint protection detail, stone chips repair and alloygator supply and fitment yesterday.


First off looking around the car it was pretty dirty and definitely needed some help.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/01-20150613_070728_zpsdqu0kwuw.jpg [/url]


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/02-20150613_070636_zpseizf0ke8.jpg [/url]


For some reason i really hate dirty tyres, Pet peeve #1


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/03-20150613_070702_zps1wvcbqzn.jpg [/url]


I had to get them clean no matter, the stuff that was stuck to the tyres, greasy/oily tyre dressing (uugghh) cover in dirt, grime, cow poop and brake dust ... oily/greasy dressings are just a nightmare to remove, great for the forecourt as they last longer but not so good for the rubber and my patients.


TFR and Autosmart Smart wheels to the rescue.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/04-20150613_071628_zpseu2lm6yt.jpg [/url]


http://i.imgur.com/T4Vjx1X.gif
Satisfaction.


Next the wheels got the first of a two stage decontamination process. I used Autosmart Fallout remover and this left the rims squeaky clean


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/05-20150613_074734_zpsyknyhyol.jpg [/url]


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/06-20150613_074851_zpsbioaqsyw.jpg [/url]


Next i remove any tar deposits.


http://i824.photobucket.com/albums/zz168/jamesdownes1000/Audi%20A3%20S%20line/11-Audi%20A3_zpsbnai5nns.jpg [/url]


Wheel and tyres done I focused my powers on the paint, first snow foaming to remove any loose dirt. Autosmart Duet doing its thing.

Glass cleaned, tyres dressed i fitted some silver Alloygators to cover some existing damage on the rear offside rim and to protect the rest from any further possible damage.


That lot worked up quite a sweet.

Boy OH Boy this car pops!

Deep interior valet in newcastle west, Limerick

How we renew excessiely soiled interiors.

Sometimes an interior is too far gone for a standard interior valet to be effective this is why we have the Deep interior valet. This service deals with interior odors and excessive soiling like mold, spills, stains, dirt and grime. Here we use Hot water extraction and steam combined with dedicated cleaning agents to renew interiors. Below is an example of the deep interior valet.

This car was left idle for six months, there was a leak and well .. stuff grew.

http://i.imgur.com/DCmMXdF.jpg

First job was to remove the seats for ease of cleaning and access to the carpet. I extracted these seats with hot water and steam,

Finally i sprayed on an enzyme cleaner and left the seats covered overnight, in the morning i steamed them again.
