    We had this Merc in for a Enhancement Detail this week basically to put some life back into the old girl! The main objective here was not to fully correct the paint but to simply enhance the black paint colour and erase the grey cloudy shadow and heavy swirling that was all over the car! As this car is 12 years old as you would expect there was some heavy swirling in the paint and in need of some attention!

    Unfortunately we had camera issues here so we have no prep and decontamination pictures so we will just move straight into the polishing!

    Weapon of choice again was the DA6 Pro with the 3M Yellow Waffle pad with the 3M Extra fine Compound! Simply fact is that it is a excellent combination and it works!

    Enjoy!

































































    So as you all may be aware the 3M Range of compounds are a bit dusty so we took here outside to give her a bath and soak with our new Peardrop Snow Foam mmmmmmmmmm!







    A quick rinse and back inside for a thorough dry and ready for some protection!

    The Autobrite Fluffy Drying Towel was used here to dry her off! As she was getting on we did not want to leave her too wet for too long, she may have got a cold

    For protection we broke out a fresh new tin of Autobrite Black Magic Carnauba Paste Wax! Awesome wax that was easy on - easy off which left a stunning wet finish! We applied and left for approx 15 minutes to cure then buffed off with a soft towel!



































    All done and ready for some outside photos! In the gorgeous sun!

















    Wheels cleaned with Autobrite Very Cherry Non Acid Wheel Cleaner
    Tyres dressed with Autobrite Berry Blast Tyre Gel























    The lines are in the sky by the way, airplane lines













    Done!!

    Considering this was a old car she did come up really well! As stated this just was a Enhancement Detail and the owner was completely over the moon!!

    Thanks for looking and see you soon!

    Regards Mark

    Quality work

    I use the 3m stuff myself and the polish and pad combo is spot on. I see you used the ultrafina too

    3M Extrafine or 3M Fast Cut topped with Ultrafina imo is the best combo.
