911Fanatic/T-Dawg vs AMG CLS

Its been a while since I've posted anything as its been a very busy year so far. I've got a few cars to get caught up on so lets get started. This job was a referral after I did a job for a client on a local forum. As scheduling conflicts prevented me from going back a second day, Terence was once again recruited for the day. When we got to the clients, we found the car to be very dirty and in need of a very thorough cleaning.

Engine / Jambs - Cleaned with AG Powermax3 and RG brushes
Washed with Blackfire Shampoo
Tires / Wheels - AG Custom Wheel Cleaner and Bilberry. Wheels needed spot cleaning with an acid based product as the brake dust buildup in areas was severe.
Clayed with samples of Gloss it Green ( mild ) and Lavender ( aggressive ) clay. AutoMagic BodyShine #49 was used for lube.
Polished with Flex3403/GI pads (Ken) and Makita/LC pads ( Terence) and Menz PF and 85RD
LSP was DG501/601/105
Wheels sealed with DG105 and tires dressed with GI Signature Tire Gloss
Interior was scrubbed down with AG Interior Shampoo and AG Hi Tech Cleaning Pad.
Leather was cleaned and conditioned with Lexol
Glass was cleaned with AG Fast Glass and WW Glass Towels

One dirty CLS 550












WTF?!




Accumulations were in all the jambs.


Car had a good smattering of fallout as well




Terence and I tried the Gloss it clays. They reacted with the AM Bodyshine for some reason and Terence turned into the Hulk while I turned into, well, Barney.


Lots of swirls were found although they were hard to capture on film.


Having my way with the Benz Ceramiclear


As was Terence


Nasty bumper scuff


Just add Flex and some PF....




Interior was also quite dirty


















Tips after using P21S


And another 15 minutes of polishing with Autosol and some special finishing polish






Looking better


SWEET! Wheels were sealed with 105 as well




Nice reflection - especially on white.


All done. Enjoy.


















All sills and jambs were sealed as well


Interior looked awesome when it was finished












Swirled tail lights


Same after polishing






Theres that damn cat again! That thing is freakin' me out!
















Wicked!






Money shot!

The cat is waiting for you to finish with his pussy magnet.

Nice job... 0_o at the condition of the car at the start, though.

That was a lot of brake dust!

The level of detail you bring onto your client's car is jaw-dropping. Did you use compressed air for the hard to reach spots in the interior? How long was the entire job?
