Sometimes protection isn’t everything. In today is Bryan’s new (used) E350, which has seen some better days. The goal of today was to enhance the look of the paint, and ridding as many swirls as possible in two steps of polish. The goal was to achieve about 75-85% correction, which I think we got pretty close to. We certainly could’ve spent a full day worth of extra polishing on the car, but since Bryan only plans to keep the car for another few years, getting the car presentable again was our main concern. Quite an improvement for ~7hrs of work!

I take it back, black really does look best. Seldom does an old school classic come around for a full detail and coating, but in today is Veasna’s 560SEL which will be used in his wedding in two weeks, so getting the paint dialed in as good as possible was the goal for today. The car had been repainted before, and at certain areas there wasn’t much paint to really play with, so polishing at all areas where the paint was <2um was kept to a minimal. Nevertheless, the car came out looking much better than I originally hoped for, given that the paint thickness measured from between 2um all the way up to 100um. I was concerned that it would be difficult to get uniform levelness on the paint, but some substantial improvements were made! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves from here.

Mercedes’ Arctic White has always been one of my favorite whites; simply pure, crisp, and clean. What makes it look even better though? Some Opticoat Pro!

Optimum Opti-coat Pro  application is the strongest protection available for a vehicle’s clear coat. Unlike waxes and sealants, Opti-Coat Pro…

Black looks best when done right! This model year E series was one of my dream cars (within reason) in the recent years (Does the logo look familiar? hehe) Ranjeet scored one heck of a deal on this car, having only 4k miles on the odometer when he bought it. Since then, he’s logged a little over 10k miles on it, and also waited nearly two months before I was able to fit him into my schedule for a proper pampering. He’ll be one of the wettest looking E350’s on the streets for many years to come! Coated with Opticoat Pro, and topped with Glosscoat for added slickness and glossiness!
