Re: Car Detailing For W124 230E
Here's another tips for you folks. If your headlamp turn yellow, rather then sticking tinted film on the headlamp or change the whole unit, why don't you guys try polish it? Item needed for the process;

1. Sandpaper (1000, 1500, 2000 grit)(rm1 each at car paintshop)
2. Sanding block (rm10 at car paintshop)
3. Water

Option 1:
4. Clear lacquer in rattle can (rm10 at home depot, the more expensive, probably the better)

Option 2:
4. Rotary polish
5. Cutting polish compound (Polish compound that can rid 1500 grit sand mark)
6. Car wax.
7. Wool pad.

Procedure;
1. Mask the area around headlamp to prevent paint scratch.
2. Wet all your sandpaper and the headlamp
3. Use a lot of water and wet sand the headlamp, starting from the coarsest sandpaper, depending how severe the yellowing.
4. Sand the headlamp to remove the yellowing. Sand from left to right, up and down in movement. You will notice murky sludge is produced. Sand until the yellowing is gone. Then continue sanding using finer sand paper, until the headlamp is smooth, and sanded evenly through out the headlamp surface.
5. After sanding process, clean and wipe dry the headlamp surface for lacquer coating, OR polishing.
6. For lacquer coating, the first coating must be a very light coat of lacquer, and let it dry. 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on, can be done with thicker lacquer coating.
7. For polishing process, spread some cutting compound directly on the headlamp, and start polishing with wool pad, at low speed. Move the polisher back and forth to avoid melting of the plastic. Add more polish on the headlamp until the plastic become clear. (Note that some times the inside of the headlamp is still yellow, although you have polished the outer side of the headlamp.)
8. After polishiing session, wax the headlamp.

Here is some pic of yellowed plastic that i have succesfully fixed;

And i have been doing some interior cleaning also. Most of the dealers only call me only to polish the exterior only, because they insist on wet extraction vacuum cleaner, for interior cleaning, which i dont have at the moment. Still, some dealers entrusted me to do the interior cleaning. This car is a vios with cloth seats. Lots of elbow grease involved to make it look better again. Have a look folks.

Hi and salam 1 Mercedes to you all. I am posting to share some of my works. Last week a member of our beloved club hired me to detail his car at his house. Mr Saravanan, the owner of the W211 E-Class, greeted me with a big smile, could not wait to get his merc cleaned. I did my best, and Mr Saravanan satisfied with my work. Here are some pictures. Selamat menyambut ramadhan al mubarak, assalamualaikum , and have a nice day ladies and gents.

Last time, i put on a hydrophobic coating on my dad's w124, and it didnt last long. This new coating i used on my waja and any other car seems to repel dirt far better than the hydrophobic solution. Have a look at the pictures.

Before Wet Towel Swipe



After Wet Towel Swipe



Yes, i know the lacquer is peeling on my car's bonnet. But that is for another topic. I have not washed my car for a month, just because to show you this. I used wet microfibre towel wipe off the dirt. The paint is still smooth and glossy. The special coating i use on my car is.... just wax. Carnauba car wax from China. It surprised me big time too (assuming you were surpised after you read the sentence before). Anything that lasts more than a month is good in my book. Even my money does not last that long!

Re: Car Detailing For W124 230E
Hi mybenzers, how are you guys doing? I have been doing a few cars lately, but only one mercedes this week. It is a dark grey w204, been in and out of the canopy of the showroom, and got resprayed before i got to work on it. The paint surface feels rough, even though it looks fine from our eyes. I have to clay the whole car, and very murky water surfaced when claying. I used soapy water, but the solution itself just a little murky if left to dry. So the very murky water may have come from the surface contaminant of the paint. I continued the detailing process by polishing and waxing. The wax gave the colour of the car a bit darker. Charged the dealership for RM90. Enjoy the pictures!

The lugnut holes and fender inside (banana leaf) were cleaned, to make the look of the car more focused. The watermark on the windscreen were removed.
