Default Mercedes 380SL Detailed And topped With Fuzion

Thanks To Sizzle Chest over at for sharing

Had a friend whose Fiat I detailed (Ciao! A Rupes review...on Little Red)
Thread here: Ciao! A Rupes review...on Little Red - Auto Geek Online Auto Detailing Forum mention me to his neighbor. She has an all original 1984 Mercedes 380SL that needed a little love.

It only has 29K miles on the clock...and it was pretty hammered. Some of the panels looked like they were washed with a brillo pad. Very swirled up...some heavy swirls, holograms, and some heavier scratches/scuffs. The wheels were pretty trashed too. Baked on dust and just filthy. The interior has a ton of real leather all over the place and it was dry..Sahara desert dry!

OK, on to the fun stuff!

Swirls, scratches, scuffs, etc...hammered!
