Detailing Dirtiest Car Ever! First Wash in 37 Years Mercedes 280 SL

Pubblicato il 18 ago 2019
This was one of my favorite details and films I've ever produced. David has been asking his 83 year old father (doctor who work in NYC and travels back and forth to NJ daily) to pull his 1969 Mercedes 280 SL out of their old garage and restore it so it can be passed down to his grandchildren. David asked if we could pull the Mercedes out of the garage (where it has been for 37 years) and detail it enough so that it inspires his father to give the green light for restoration. Watch the step by step process of removing the mold, dead animals, dust, dirt, and oxidized paint back to life. Hope you enjoy the reveal :) -Larry

  • I just bought an 07 mustang at age 20. I hope to give it to my son or daughter one day.

  • Rant on: Why do people call it "dead paint"? It is not DEAD! It was never alive, therefore, it cannot die. It is oxidized, as you say. Rant off. Great videos and an excellent source for DIY'ers.

  • Incredible

  • This guy has 40 year old shirts LOL I imagine I'll have those too at that age

  • 정말 멋져요 기술이 짱임 구독누름. 저도배워서 하고싶어요. Good

  • 素晴らしい!パーフェクト💯

  • This. was. so. therapeutic. 😌

  • His dad is 83 and is still working.....’Drops mic’

  • Please leave it as original as possible. Original unrestored is better for this beauty

  • 15:28 they kinda look alike =)

  • 07:55 "Eagle Talon restoration"? That's a fucking throw away car. I hope some Saudi Oil mogul's son paid for that crap? Ludicrous. This guys grand kids won't appreciate this car & TRASH IT. Mark my words. You do not give a CLASSIC car to a "grand kid". FACT.

  • lol if you had a son would you do this for him like to tell meh

  • Random person: wow nice car man how much did it cost? Him: dirtiness.

  • I will never understand why people cannot just get a car cover.

  • Porque não encher os pneus e ligar o carro?

  • If Id had a doctor 83 years old man I'd whoop his ass when the door was closed. straight send him out

  • Coming home from work at 83 years old . . Wow. What a nice surprise for him 😊

  • Beautiful job guys. Great son, so kind to his awesome Dad😊❤

  • 15:27 and that, children, is what you call a million-dollar smile!!

  • The way his eyes lit up when he saw the car cleaned made me happy

  • I can't get my head around why ..but what an amazing video to watch !!

  • Is there any link to the restoration video?

  • Why would so many people dislike this? they worked very hard.

  • Holy cow

  • Thank you david and your dad...for sharing...

  • Wish I was a grandkid NEED THAT CAR

  • Bts of a barn find in forza

  • My only question is WHY would you leave that car in your garage for 37 years?

    • apreciate what we are driving, maybe that was the last time it driven. -- I have motorbike at home,someday just like normal day I was left it in the garage for work, but time passed its 10 years already since that day without ride it anymore :-)

    • because he can......

    • Yep, if i had a classic, red Mercedes roadster i'd probably park it and never drive it again...

    • He committed a serious crime with that car. So he hid it to hide his crime. 😵

  • Tried to play off that fist bump @17:07 😂

  • Bruh he was 46 yrs old

  • Ein Traum. : )

  • How much do you charge to fully detail cars similar to how you detailed this one?

  • This is my dream car haha funny that I found this video

  • I have a 102 degree fever and I’m watching two guys wash a car 😌😌

  • Drove it for 10 years in 1972 huh? That's cool

  • I am die hard fan on car restoration subject and can go extreme levels to get on to the nerve of car restoration. I own several cars including few luxury cars like skoda and Isuzu. Why the cost of cleaning and other resources used is not mentioned.

  • Great decision on wearing tyvek and masks; rat dropping coz more epidemics and health issues than we realize; they're top carriers of long forgotten plagues and bacteria, just anyone at the CDC

  • This is very satisfying to watch

  • That's why Indian celebrit DepWali 🤣

  • Отмыли зашибись. Но было бы круто, если бы его завели и прокатились. А то отмыли - и обратно в гараж еще на 37 лет. Неполноценное видео.

  • so some of that rat poop is older than a lot of us

  • The car looked prefect after the detail job. Why would he go for a full restoration? I would change the fluids and clean the gas tank and get new tires and drive it.

  • This car is such a beauty.

  • Nice job guys seeing this smile of a dad reminds me of my dad

  • And simple clean!!!!

  • This was an awesome video this is inspiring to go outside and clean up 59 vw bug that I purchased that has been sitting for 30 years been wanting this car since I was 7 everything's intact in there just extremely filthy and disgusting but amazingly there's no rips in the interior your tips are totally useful and do work the vinegar and steamer is the best

  • Pagoda prices have peaked. Pops should unload now, while he still can.

  • I don't know how I got here but this video made me happy
