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
