Arrow Refined Details: Mercedes AMG S Class Detailer Resurrection

Here is another S Class from back in November, a gorgeous genuine factory AMG! After some bodyshop work and another "detailer" deciding to just cut back the finish with no finishing polishes left the black paintwork looking not as good as it should...

The vehicle was in for a 1-step enhancement detail with full interior and engine bay bolt-ons to prepare the vehicle for sale - 100% correction was not expected but a lift to the finish and removing the majority machine inferred marks was the goal.

On Arrival





Not looking too bad...

Closer Inspection









First up were the alloys.

Alloys After



The vehicle received the usual Refined Details comprehensive safe wash process and was rolled into the unit for clay barring; to remove any bonded contamination.

Before the claying was undertaken the engine bay was undertaken.

Engine Bay After



Next up was the interior.

Interior After













Onto the decontamination with the clay.









A horrendous amount of contamination... now all removed to enable the perfect surface to machine polish upon!

Loads of polish residues left by the last "detailer"... very sloppy.





This was across the board...

Bonnet Before







Bonnet After





Drivers Wing Before



Drivers Wing After





Drivers Front Door Before



Drivers Front Door After



Drivers Rear Door Before



Drivers Rear Door After



Drivers 3/4 Panel Before

Bootlid Before





Bootlid After



Not 100% correction but a massive improvement to aid the sale of the vehicle. The paintwork was protected with Valentines Concours Wax and all the other exterior surfaces were treated accordingly.

The Results



























Thank you for looking and reading as always... it was a real pleasure bringing this rare AMG S Class back up to a respectable condition for its sale - to which it sold to the first viewer.

All the bodykit is AMG if you look closely - more aggressive styling and additional splitters not found on standard models.

Thanks for the great feedback gents.
