Recently, we had the rare opportunity to repair a 2020 Rolls Royce Wraith right here in Pittsburgh, Pa. Truthfully, we see most cars no matter the make or model as just cars. We repair them with the same amount of precision and care. However, this particular car was just a beautiful work of art, we had to make a video and blog post about it.

So, back to our story….we had a client email us about a dime size dent on the quarter panel of his 2020 Rolls Royce Wraith. Now, after we all commented on what a SWEET car this was, the technicians started talking logistics. The dent is small, which is good. The quarter panel has no access to get a tool behind the dent. Not ideal, but still not a deal breaker….and something I learned…Each Rolls Royce is made individually. No assembly line. They are hand painted! This gave us pause, as our only option to remove the dent was to glue pull. (We have a great article on glue pulling you can read!) Our head technician did some research on glue pulling on Rolls Royce panels. The owner of the car and Dave (head technician) agreed to move forward with the repair. With our client’s permission, we were able to video the repair.
