AMG is the top of the line when it comes to Mercedes-Benz. Almost every AMG is more expensive and the highest performing variant in each Mercedes-Benz class. With a vehicle like this C63S, our customer wanted to take the utmost care and use the best products available to keep his Benz protected. With all of that being said, we applied CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all exterior painted surfaces, coated the wheels (faces, barrels and brake calipers), coated the leather interior / dash, performed a 1-step paint correction and provided him with his own set of washing supplies to maintain the ceramic coating! Continue reading below to see more of the process and after images of the final outcome.
An initial wash is performed before we start on the paint correction. We also used CarPro IronX Snow Soap on the vehicle to open up the paints pores. This helps release any contaminants that may be in the paints surface and help us remove them during the correction process.
Brake dust is always a paint to remove when cleaning your wheels. Especially when you have a nice set of wheels like these, Vossen LC105-T’s! Some people are concerned about the matte finish becoming glossier when adding a ceramic coating. We have coated several matte finish wheels and haven’t had any issues regarding that. With this set of wheels, the coating added a rich deep black finish. The ceramic coating slightly changed the appearance (looks better in our opinion) and it will help keep them looking freshly detailed for years to come!
Here is the final product! The CQuartz Professional ceramic coating has been applied to all painted exterior surfaces, wheels, the leather interior was coated and we protected the rocker panels with a XPEL Ultimate rocker panel kit! This C63S had a partial clear bra kit installed from the dealership. We applied the CQuartz coating over the clear bra. This adds slightly more gloss to the film and provides the same hydrophobic properties as it would on painted surfaces.
