SL55 AMG with a Whipple Supercharger

Have you ever seen a Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG with a Whipple Supercharger? Well now you have! Our customer brought by his SL55 AMG to us wanting to get it brought back to the condition it was when he first purchased it. The paint was in decent shape but definitely needed some help from our detail department. Follow the transformation on this now beautiful SL55 AMG!

The first step we took was washing off the vehicle to get rid of any dirt / debris on the car.

Now that the Mercedes has been cleaned, we can see the imperfections in the paint. This car did get a coating of CQuartz Finest so a 1-step polish was necessary. Our 1-step polish, helped get rid of the swirl marks and scratches you see, while providing a fresh clean layer for the coating to adhere to.

Check out the condition of the paint how it arrived to us below.

In order to keep this paint looking freshly waxed for years to come, we applied CQuartz Finest to the entire paint surface.
