Mercedes 320SL Pre-Sale Protection

Hi all,

Here’s one from back in December – this job took me mobile to High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire; so only up the road! The vehicle in question was a Mercedes SL320 in need of a thorough cleanse and protection prior to being entered into a classic motor auction.

Pretty well soiled in places! First up were the alloys, arches & tyres.

The exterior received the usual Refined Details wash process including snow foam…

Once dried, I set about giving the interior a thorough clean including the leather being cleaned and reconditioned.

Once the interior was completed the bodywork had all the bonded contamination removed with use of a clay bar.

The exterior was then polished with a pre-wax cleanser to provide a perfect bonding surfaces for our Nanotechnology Sealant. All the other exterior surfaces were treated accordingly.

The Results

Thank you for looking and ready as always… It was a real pleasure bringing this modern classic back up to a really respectable standard before being sold.
