“Hi I’m John, reporting in from IntroCar which is the home of Prestige Parts®. Some of you will know a little bit about this range that I have in front of me today. They are some of the products we have had on the market for a while but there have been a few additions and updates.

So I thought I would just give you some more information. Anyone who has watched some of our vlogs will know that we have already produced some of the Shadow, Silver Shadow II, Bentley T2 and Corniche quarter bumper mouldings. These have been in the range for a little while now, these have been around for around about 18 months or so.

That is the centre moulding for the front and back which is fitted to the Shadow II, T2 and the Corniche. Here we have a rear quarter bumper for the Shadow II and T2. Here is the front quarter bumper and this is the one that is fitted to the later Corniche which is distinguished by this kind of scallop here. It is quite unusual and not fitted to many cars but we added that to the range because none of these are actually available or were available before we brought them back to market. I’ll just remind you a little bit about what these are and how are they made.

This is actually a micro cellular polyurethane which is not a rubber, it’s actually a very, very dense foam so if you got this under a microscope you would see it is actually a foam. Inside there is a steel insert and the way these are made is quite clever really. What happens is you have a female part of the mold underneath and then a male part which comes down into the female part and here you may be able to see these bolts. There is the steel fixture and that is suspended in the mold and then the polyurethane is pumped in. Then it’s allow to cure and then you get this assembly out of it, is quite an interesting technique. Obviously it doesn’t really lend itself to mass manufacture because you can only really make one of these at a time, so quite an interesting technique.

There were some problems with the original product which really became apparent over time and the first of those was; actually just plain rust because what tended to happen was water would get into a very small perforation or holes in the unit, the steel would actually expand as it rusted and that would tend to pull the steel insert out from the bumper, also causing it to distort. You can sometimes see them going like that.

The other thing that happened was just the effects of heat, cold and Ultra Violet (UV) light tended to cause the external part of the bumper to cure faster than the internal part. So that actually made it shrink slightly and that distorted the bumper. So you tend to find that you see a lot of cars out there where this, particularly on the rears, they tend to be pulling away from the car. Well we made a couple of changes which should get rid of those problems going forward.

The first thing we have done is that we made this insert about 50% thicker so it’s stronger and it resists the tendency of this to distort over time.

The second thing we have done, which is important, is we made this insert from stainless steel so that it won’t rust so these actually should last even longer than the originals. Really quite a nice product.

There are a couple of additions to the range now which is really why I’m talking to you today. These have just literally just come in this week, some of you may know that this is a right hand front quarter bumper which is fitted to all the four door Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars built from 1980 to about 1995 before they went to the wrap around bumper model. So that is the Silver Spirit, Silver Spur, Flying Spur, the Bentley Mulsanne, Mulsanne Turbo, Bentley Eight, Turbo R and Brooklands. I think I got them all! So they all have this type of bumper.

We also do the range of inserts which you may have seen, this fits into the quarter bumper. That is the insert and that is also available in our range. This is the centre rubber which is used on the rear and the front of the same range of vehicles as these.

This has literally come in, we are about to test this on a car. It is made in a slightly different way, inside here there are little clips which actually hook into the rubber mold and so it is suspended on this. You may notice that the finish on this is not quite as shiny as it is on this. This is kind of a satin finish and that is because this hasn’t had the final process applied to the mold. At the moment we are just doing a fit check so there is no point in just putting the finish on the bumper until we actually know that it fits perfectly well and we have got a test car that this is going on next Wednesday. So we expect these to be on the market I imagine within five to six weeks in addition to these.

It has become quite a range that we are very proud of, particularly because these parts are either extremely expensive from Bentley Motors or not available. So obviously we are delighted to be bringing things like that back to market or to market at a reasonable price.

Thanks very much for watching!”
