    Great results. The owner needs to paint the rotor “hats”.

    Nice work. Did you do the whole car with fast correcting cream, correcting cream and then perfecting cream?

    Thanks everyone!

    John, I agree. Or MB should have powdered/painted them from the factory.

    Snoop, indeed I did. Wish I didn't have to! lol

    Thanks LED!!

    Re: 2018 Mercedes C63S Coupe

    As always, beautiful results.

    Questions

    I recently detailed a similar Mercedes-Benz with light or shallow swirls like I see in your pictures. If found the paint to be on the hard side of the soft paint/hard paint spectrum.

    What is your take on the paint in this MB?


    Also - I have an older Defelsko Paint Thickness Gauge, I love it because it's incredibly accurate and easy to calibrate plus all the other cool features it offers that I outlined here,



    Which model of Defelsko do you have?

    Thanks Mike...and I know you and the Mrs. are Benz fans!

    I found it to be as you said, on the hard side. Took the Griot's trio (plus some wool then foam) to get it where I wanted/it needed to be.

    They make some superb PTG's. I have the positector 200 series standard gauge. It does all I could ask for, specifically read any substrate that I come across.
