Mercedes S500. Detailing and Everglass ceramic coating.

Greetings!

Mercedes S500, 2007 .
10 years of very tough (in terms of care) operation, the car was in the public service and was washed 1-2 times a day negligently. We were given the task to put the car into an ideal state.

Engine detailing. Cleaners Koch-Chemie.
We forgot to make photo “before” (but believe me, there was a hell), we remembered about making photo when under the hood was already splashed with Golden Star.
In addition to protecting the engine and all kinds of plastic linings below, we also partially removed the wheel arch liners.



The engine took about 5.5 hours to clean. Result:




Further was dry cleaning of disks, arches, a body, and apertures – it’s a standard.
Then we proceeded to the interior. The condition is average.
The front seats and the rear seat were removed.
We worked with proven materials that we use regularly. The leather was cleaned with Colourlock cleaners. Cleaning of plastic with Koch Chemie MERZWECKREINIGER. Textile was processed with Koch Chemie Multi Star. On the equipment: Cyclone, Tornador, extender, brushes, fiber.

General condition before:



After cleaning:



In more detail:













The car body.
It was in the saddest condition. All details were native, not repainted, except for bumpers, which were changed to restyling. Ceramic clearcoat.


The car body was polished in 3 stages:
- Koch wool + Sonax Cutmax at the Makita / Festool rotor;
- purple foam New Concept pad + Nanopolish New Concept at the Rupes Bigfoot 15/21/75;
- Rupes yellow circle pad + Koch HOCHGLANZ-ANTIHOLOGRAMM-POLITUR at the Rupes Bigfoot 15/21/75.

A little «before-after»:




Condition under the handles:




















For convenience and as much as possible qualitative cleaning, the nozzles of the exhaust were removed.
Cleaning with the use of Autosol Metal Polish, locally we used Steel Wool to remove ingrained dirt.







The final stage was the application of Everglass Premium + Platinum + Sample Coat VE nanoceramics (1 + 3 + 1) to fix the result.

The original anti-rain Aquapel is applied to all the windows and the panoramic roof.

All leather interior elements were covered with Everglass Leather nanoceramics.

Final photos:































The whole work took 6 days in 4 hands.

What a transformation - you weren't kidding when you said it had been washed neglectfully...
