This is the 3rd car the owner had us restore and coat. The Mercedes 300SE is more than20 years old but you’ll be surprise how good its been maintained.
Before we start, check out the previous BMW E34 that we restored previously!
As usual we did the standard walk around inspection.
The car was in a rather clean condition as its rarely used.
We found some scratches on the front hood.
Spotted some polish/wax residue,
Found some weird red dots on the paint. Suspected to be from trees.
More scuffs found on the fenders.
Some finer scratches found even with natural lighting
A clearer view on the scratches.
A close look on the paint reveals the haziness.
Our lighting also revealed the very minor swirls that are covering the shine.
After an extensive wash, we removed most contamination of the paint and revealed the true condition.
After some paint correction. This is the restored surface. Checkout the colour difference.
Some minor micro swirls were left behind but its not very visible.
The wheels were at its best ever condition. It practically looks new.
but we still clean up the edges.
and finally got them a nice coat of Opti-Coat™Pro
The results of good surface preparation and the quality of Opti-Coat™Pro.
