Swissvax'ed: Revisited, Georg's 1987 Mercedez-Benz 560SL

I initially detailed this car about a year ago after it had some extensive repair done due to an accident. When I initially detailed the car, the paint was an absolute mess, along with everything else on the car. Here's a link to the last writeup of this car.

1987 Mercedez-Benz 560SL


Nevertheless, once the car was perfect after I detailed it, Georg noticed many imperfections that were due to the bodyshop that did the repair work. Since the last time I detailed this car, It sat in the bodyshop for about 8 months... so you can just imagine how much of a mess it was in again. The car took me 3 days to complete. This car received an Initial Swissvax exterior Treatment, Stage 3 Polishing Package on this car using Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Strong, Professional, and Medium in that order with corresponding Swissvax Pads; as well as a full interior cleansing and protection as well as a Fine Wood Therapy Treatment The paintwork was thereafter finished off with a layer of Swissvax Concorso (At Georg's Request) by hand (Using my palms, not an applicator).

Here's how "Bobby" looked upon arrival
































































OVERSPRAY








SONAX on the wheels




Proper 3-Bucket Wash using Swissvax Car Bath




Treating every single rubber seal with Swissvax Seal Feed




Following the Wash, Rubber, and Plastic treatments, I proceeded to clay the entire exterior surface using Swissvax Paint Rubber (Yellow)

Here's how the paint looked prior to polishing










Polishing








The Final Polishing Step. To ensure a hologram-free finish and an extreme gloss!















There was a door ding on the driver's door, so I had My colleague over at Sharp Dents, Inc. come and take care of it




The finishing Touch!




Applying Autobahn Wax to the Wheels







Onto the interior...





Swissvax Leather Healer was used to touch-up some areas of the leather upholstery










Applying Protecton Matt to all the interior plastic and vinyl surfaces









Just applied Protecton Matt. in about 2 hours time it will have a completely natural looking finish




Leather Milk had just been applied, hence the oily appearance. However, in a few hours it returned to a natural look once the Leather Milk fully absorbed into the hide.








Fine Wood Therapy




Chop-Stick method to get perfectly into the badges and emblems on the exterior






Swissvax Crystal on the Windows





FINISHED!!



























































































Happy Customers J
