    1990 MB Wagon

    Man this car had some dead paint! 200k miles and 31 years old will do that.

    Customer said he just wanted it to shine and be protected. So I cut with Griots Garage Fast Correcting cream and an orange pad (I didn’t want to risk any burning with such old paint) followed by CarPro reflect and yellow refining pad.’

    I hate doing the tape line, but he asked me for it.

    The owner is part of the 1320 crew and I knew he was going to do SOME videography...didn’t think he was going to point it in my direction. But I think it went well, I am not plugging his channel. Just showing how excited he was for the results.

    Awesome job, John. Can't get over how nice the interior was. Goes to show you how much better the leather was 30+ years ago.

    I don't know what he normally blogs about, but to do a whole segment on your work is a testament to your quality.
