One of Project Detail’s favourite vehicles to date was this 2006 Bentley Continental GT. The paintwork was a deep shade, Dark Sapphire and the interior was a unique scheme between the leather swatches, Saffron Brown and Nautic Blue for a two tone finish. The car was finished in Modesta BC-05 Advanced Water Repellant Glass Coating.
Bentley Continental GT’s always have a special presence about them, their size, the long curved panels, the overly powerful but understated engine and the sheer luxury that’s expected of the brand.
The wait in Sydney for the new AMG coupe’s is finally over. With the first allotments finally trickling in, Project Detail has had the opportunity to detail and protect one of the first arrivals in beautiful Obsidian Black with Modesta BC-03 Pure Glass Coating.
The owner having previously had Opti-Coat Pro and Ceramic Pro coatings applied by Richard to their past vehicles was keen to try something new for their new AMG.

At Project Detail, we often hear people discuss about how they wash or detail their cars. We realised that there are quite a lot of myths, uncertainties and guesswork surrounding in the topic of car detailing. Here at Project Detail Studio, we are going to discuss the Top 5 Myths of Car Detailing.
Car Wash and Car Detailing are pretty much the same, just different names. Their job is to clean cars and make sure they are well cleaned.
The services at a car wash cafes are completely different to what proper Detailers offer. For starters Car Detailing is a lot more than just a wash.
In fact, the car wash takes up less than 15% of what detailers do. When a car is washed by us, we follow up with a full vehicle decontamination that safely removes above-surface contamination that can’t be removed by a simple 2-bucket method wash. Our sole goal, is to now only wash and clean the vehicle but do so in the most gentle manner to avoid swirls and defects from quick and improper washing.
Specialising in Car Detailing, Project Detail Sydney & Melbourne. We will be covering the importance of masking, preparation for paint polishing or wax application in our series decontamination and preparation.
We will be talking about what is masking and why is it important.
There are thousands of discussion on the internet about masking off trims and plastics while polishing or waxing their paintwork. And beginner or amateur detailers doesn’t seem to like the idea of spending the extra time to mask off areas.
Black plastic trims, especially rubbers are highly sensitive to compounds, polishes and waxes. As some of you may have realised. Polishing or waxing over them may leave a white residue and more often or not, when you try to clean it off, it doesn’t come off. Hence why it is important to mask all rubbers, trims and plastic to protect compounds, polishes and waxes touching them.

In Part 2, we are going to cover the main differences between a wax, sealant and ceramic quartz coating to give car owners a good overview on the 3 protection options and type that suits individual car owners the best. In Project Detail, we offer all 3 types of Paint Protection.
It is important to understand that ‘Paint Protection’ can be a wax … it also can be a sealant and most definitely some type of coating. The importance, is knowing the key differences between the variations.
Project Detail prides was designed from the ground up as a premier Car Detailing Hub, with studios located in Sydney & Melbourne. One of our core focuses is classic vehicles that the owners see great value in restoring, preserving and maintaining. Paint Correction or aka ‘cut and polish’ is a major component of this, as it allows us to bring back cars and often preventing the need for respraying. In some cases, a major detail can actually increase the value of a car.
Waxes and Synthetic Sealants are two of the best and affordable ways to maintain your car’s paintwork. It is recommended to wax your car every 2 months, however it may vary from the brand and also level of wax, how much you drive your car,how often do you wash it or how it’s parked on a day to day basis.
To find out whether you prefer a wax or a sealant, check out our paint protection page for more information.
Preparation is the key to good results when comes to applying wax. Good preparation allows the wax to bond well with the paintwork, giving the best results and longevity. We recommend going through a 2-bucket wash method, and a decontamination process to ensure your paintwork is free of contaminants before applying wax.
