We have with us a Mercedes GLC brand new from the dealership. The owner of the car brought the car back from the dealership and parked it till we got here a few days later. That’s how much car lovers love their cars! No further delays, check out what we did.
Upon arrival, we did the routine walk around to check for obvious damages.
It was really sandy!
As we moved to the paint surface, severely watermarks can be seen.
Some leftover glue marks from the protective wrappers.
More hardened glue marks.
Some lighter glue stains that we almost missed.
The edges of the side sill were covered in stains as well.
The sun was shining onto the hood, so we check on the surface condition.
Well，there was no swirls or scratches on the paint
Fuel cap areas for a brand new car?
Still pretty dirty!
First we clean up the hidden areas.
Then we worked on these areas to bring them to a clean state.
Then we removed the glue stains and harden glue marks.
We then gave the paint a light polish to remove watermark build up.
Checking under the sun again to double confirm.
The surface was cleared of all watermark build up.
Restoring the surface to a clean condition, the car is now ready to be coated.
The wheels were not exactly dull, just dirty.
A closer look of the brake dust build up from merely 1 drive.
Lug nuts areas were not neglected in the process.
Spokes are cleaned thoroughly
and Finally, the wheels were coated for maximum protection and shine.
It was not a major or serious condition to work on, so we spent about 6hours restoring this huge SUV and finally topping it all up with our Opti-Coat™Pro. Check out the gloss and shine.
Its not the first time we worked on a car like this, such size yet having such luxurious stance. This Mercedes GLC had only been owned for less than a week. Being a massive upgrade for the owner, he decided that protection is a must, hence we are here to sort him out today!
Upon arrival, it was slightly drizzling, hence the bonnet was a little wet.
We did the routine inspection to check for obvious damages, but there was none.
We checked the areas that is usually filthy, but it was clean.
We expect the paint to be spanking new but again, we were wrong.
The paint had some significant damage on it, although not very visible due to the colour.
Lucky for us, the sky was gloomy and we were able to capture on camera.
Other than that, the paint was smooth and the dealership did some waxing on the paint as well.
Not forgetting the typical road contamination.
We spent quite alot of time washing the car in detail to make sure it squeeky clean.
Further detailing this area to make sure its 100%
After much inspection around the car, we found out that only this area is affected by swirls.
We did some paint correction on the damages.
Zoom in and you’ll notice a deeper yet non visible RIDS (random isolated deep scratch)
And finally to a swirl free surface.
Upon finishing all paint correction, we noticed some polish splatter on the plastics. It was definitely not from us as it was already dried up.
After some magic with a tooth brush, we sorted it out.
The wheels on the other hand were on the dirty side.
Mostly due to brake dust and rain.
After spending too much time on just the wheels alone.
We coated to protect.
Finally, the entire car was coated with Opti-Coat™Pro and check out the captionless finishing.
