Detailed: Mercedes-Benz R500 *Picture Intensive

Got the chance to work on an R500 that was in poor condition. The wheels were heavily caked in brake dust, interior has yogurt thats been sitting for over a month, and car was dirty. Anyways, the cars lease is up soon so the owner decided to not have a full detail. He just wanted it cleaned up and have a coat of wax on it (BH Autobalm) so it could hide a bit of the defects. Wish I could have been more thorough, but owner said not to worry about it. Anyways products used:

Wash:
- 2 Bucket Method w/ Grit Guards
- Raceglaze Sheepskin Washmitt
- Majestic Solutions Ultra Gloss
- Zep Citrus

Wheels/Tires:
- Zep Citrus Degreaser
- Raceglaze XL Wheel Brush
- Meguiars Tire Brush
- Old Sponge cut in half
- Michaels Paint Brush
- Gloss-It Signature Tire Gloss

Interior:
- Majestic Solutions Leather & Plastic Cleaner
- Zep Citrus Degreaser 5:1
- Chemical Guys Ammonia FreeWindow Cleaner
- RagShack Window WW
- Wal-Mart MFs
- Autowerkes Exclusive MF Applicator Pads
- Ridgid WD1450 Shop Vac

Last Step Protection:
- Bilt Hamber Auto Balm
- Distilled Water
- Blackfire Applicator Pad
- Cookie Monster V2

Befores:

























Interior Befores:






























Button made getting at wheel wells a lot easier


During:

Brand new gloves...


Afters:


















Interior Afters:
Yogurt Stains out
















Reflection Shots:





Thanks for looking!

Jesus H. Christ, how the hell can you let yogurt sit for a month?

Unless it wasn't yogurt

Anyways, awesome job though.

Yeah...the yogurt stains were a PITA to remove. But anyways, the wheels aren't 100% clean but I did what I could with them. Owner said he's returning the car anyways since the lease is up so he said don't worry about it.

Its from the Raceglaze XL brush, its hard to avoid splatter when you have as much brake dust as this had. Normally I get minimal brake dust splatter on rims with moderate brake dust. But these rims were caked in it.
