Im sure your thinking what can you do to a brand new 2009 WHITE Mercedes with only 5k miles on it?? Well, believe it or not, there is still a big difference to be made! As well as needed a good clay bar session to remove the fallout, the owner confessed to running the car through an automatic car wash twice and he paid the consequence. With only two washes, there were some very deep scratches as well as some surface swirls. The owner wanted these removed so that he could have a perfect swirl free car before applying a new clear-bra to the car.

The car how it arrived, while it looked clean, it still needed some cleaning. ;)


















I was thankful for the full glass roof! ;)

In the sun, you can clearly see the defects, although it was hard to capture with the camera, let alone look at in the blaring sun!



Here is an example of one of the deeper scratches from the carwash.




And another. It may not look too bad, but trust me it was deep!

For the final wash, I looked up and realized I had a helper so I took a couple shots of him in action as well. :) He was pretty tame, letting me get within a foot from him before he even moved.


And since we live in FL, it can be bright and sunny one moment, and then this can happen with no warning. Unfortunately, the customer had to drive it home in the pouring rain. :mad:
