Car Detailing For W124 230E
Greeting mybenzers!
I promised you chaps pictures of car detailing process for my dad's 230e. Hope you guys enjoy the pics, and may our detailing sifus may flock to this thread and judge me. Not too harsh ya? . OK, cut to the chase;

Before washing




Washed the car using using 2 bucket method, as i dont have any grit guard. Used microfibre wash mitt and microfibre towel to work on the car.

After washing


Rim, tyre and inner fender cleaning





I cleaned the inside rim using long brush, flexible brush to clean behind the spoke, and brush to clean intricate area (Basically i use the brush to clean the face of the rims. Scrub the tyres and dont forget the inner fender as well, as you may call it banana leaf.

Claying to prepare for polishing

After washing the car, it is a good practice to claybar the surface of the paint. Clay the car with the help of soapy water as lubricant, clay the whole to remove any dirt and sand that cannot be removed during car wash.

Polishing the car

Before polishing


After polishing
In this process, i prefer to use wool cutting pad than foam pad because it will cut deep scratches faster. After polishing using wool pad, i decided not to use the foam pad afterwards, because almost 70% of the deep scratches are gone. Plus, no marring (spider web patern scratch) present after the polishing session. For the polishing compound, i used fast cut compound from Waxco.

Hydrophobic coating solution

Fancy as it sounds, it is like applying Rain-x to your paint. The hydrophobic solution was applied to the paint and left to dry about 30 minutes. Then buff the coating out using microfibre towel. The solution also can be applied to the windscreen, but i prefer to use Rain-x, as it is easier to put on.

Finished product


There you have it, the colour of the car is one tone lighter (no thanks to the black spot because of our rain), and probably i dont have to wash the car for the next 3 weeks. Check out the clear reflection on the car's hood. I must admit that there some scratches i didnt remove, as it is time consuming for a one person doing it, and i didnt get paid by my father. .

I really enjoy enjoy doing this job, and i might going into detailing business, probably this year. Hope you guys like it, and please drop some comment!
