The owner of this 13 plate Mercedes C63 AMG brought the car to our detailing studio in Surrey for paint enhancements and ceramic coatings
The paintwork on an aged vehicle tends to look quite dull due to swirl marks within the paint, these are a common occurrence and caused by harsh wash chemicals and the use of hand car wash services.
Our team use compound machine polishing techniques to remove imperfections in the paint prior to any treatments. The depth of machine polishing is dependent on the depth of the swirls and scratches within the paintwork. In this case, the paintwork required a stage 2 machine polish which removes a thin layer of top coat which in turn removes the damage.
The first job is a full 22 stage decontamination which involves a range of cleaning techniques to remove all contaminants. The paint depth is then measured and assessed with specialist equipment and machine polished to produce a swirl free surface.
The Best Ceramic Coating For Black Paintwork
Our team used Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light, a protective and high gloss ceramic coating. Followed by Gtechniq Exo which provides a layer of water/dirt repellent protection and makes maintenance much easier. Find out more about Gtechniq products here
In addition to the ceramic coatings, the alloy wheels were removed, refurbished and coated with Gtechniq C5 wheel armour. Again, this specialist product is designed to repel dirt and brake dust, keeping the alloys in great condition and easy to clean.
