Mercedes 600SL V12 Enhancement Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

Something a little bit special for you guys

This cool Mercedes 600SL came in for a freshen up.
The car was imported from the USA and has sat in storage for a little while. It had picked up a few little scratches and things but nothing very serious. There were quite a few wet sanding marks to deal with though.

Onto the detail,

Full safe wash and decontamination,
Fabric roof clean and re-proof,
Enhancement Detail (single stage machine polish),
Auto Finesse Protection - paintwork and wheels,
Engine bay and interior freshen up.

Onto the car

Just a little dirty really

Fabric roof scrubbed first.

Then onto the wheels.

Engine bay before (we'll come back to this later)

Full safe wash of the body work.

The car was wahed, treated for tar, iron fallout, clayed and prepared for machine polishing.

A selection of before and afters - remember, the car was only in for enhancement, by no means is this a full correction.

Awesome bit of kit, bit of an odd car to have imported though?

Your workshop/unit is ace but you could do with a much larger sign on the back wall.

Now that's come up really well, especially as you say, in for "just" a refresh. Lovely deep gloss to it.
