This Merc was done last year one of my regular clients picked up this used AMG with very low kms , paint work was in desperate need of paint correction .

The previous owner must have put this car through car washes as evidenced by the numerous swirl marks and very deep scratches  :irked:

This is how the whole car looked like
  :doh: :thumbsdown:

Upon inspection i took paint readings to see if there was enough paint to perform paint correction !
The readings were with in Mercedes Benz tolerance that is , the measurements taken indicated a healthy amount of paint .

So on with the paint correction !

For this job i used a combination of Rotary and Flex DA ( Dual Action Polisher ) the paint on this car was fairly hard which make the buffing a little difficult , nevertheless after spending 9 hours of polishing here are the results !

Thanks David ,

Happy New Year mate
  :thumbsup:


I would have loved to have had an SLR with fish eye to capture dramatic shots of this car and a wide angle lense , which you lack when you have a single fixed lense that would have made a huge difference

They do look bigger, but when you get up close there not as big !
