    Some other details

    Had the chance to detail this 1965 Mercedes SL230 Convertible over the last few days and nights.

    The car was left at a Merc dealership for repairs and they left it out in the rain over the easter long weekend which resulted in water spots and some etching in the paint


    This was how I received it.












    Engine got a degrease and the exterior got the regular wash


    Paint was clayed.
    This is what came off the roof


    And this is what came off the bonnet and boot


    It was then rinse, dried and taken inside to prepare the body for polishing


    Some shots of the paint defects under Metal Halide lamps




    Bonnet






    It got a Stage 2 machine polish which involved Menzerna P091L with Orange LC pad for the 1st stage and Menzerna 106ff and White LC pad for 2nd stage.
    50/50 shots




    Sealed with Wolfgang DGS and left over night to cure




    Next day a coat of Victoria Concours Wax was layered over the Wolfgang sealant for more depth in colour


    Bilt-Hamber Auto balm was used to seal all chrome parts. A great product to help prevent corrosion.


    Interior received a full interior detail which included vacuum, leather cleaned and conditioned with Driven VRL and full carpet shampoo.

    Dave that is stunning! What a great job. I'm sure the owner would have been very pleased.


    On the topic of dealers and car washing...I washed mine and gave it a coat of meguiars on Sunday. Car was absolutely spotless (minus the few paint swirls which I will get done someday...lol)
    Car went in on Tuesday still very clean, when I got it back the dealer had run a dirty chamois over it and left it all streaky with crap on the windows and paint. I couldn't believe it.
