    Arrow N8 KOW v Black ML 320 CDI

    This detail took place over Monday & Tuesday of this week (I seriously need to start doing these write ups faster). It belong’s to Matt’s dad, Paul. He wanted it done following the results of Matt’s car.

    It's a 2005 Mercedes ML320 CDI, with a nice amount of options including a very stylish AMG bodykit & wheels.

    On with the detail, wasn't dirty at all to start with, had been washed the previous day.







    Hardly any dirt on the wheels!



    So onto the wheels first, featuring the usual suspects.



    Envy Brush for the wheel faces



    EZ Wheel Brush for the backs



    Good old Tardis always comes in handy





    Then Rinsed



    Backs were looking good



    Wheels were dirtier than they looked (most people never clean behind, as you can see)



    Arches were cleaned with Megs APC





    It was attracting some nice wildlife



    Then car was then rinsed



    Some previous protection on the paintwork



    Onto the engine bay



    Megs APC used again (finishing pictures to follow)



    All the shuts etc done via Megs APC also











    Car then snow foamed via Elite HD lance & Elite Snow Foam



    Then Rinsed



    Car was then clayed using Megs Last Touch & Megs Mild Clay. Lots of overspray on this car from his workshop

    Car was then re-washed and dried via leaf blower & drying towel



    Car then moved under the gazebo & taped up





    The defects before



    And after G220 and Menz 3.02 on Lake Country Polishing Pad





    Reflections were looking very good













    The gazebo had broke due to the winds, it was funny



    Car was moved into his workshop


    Car was beading well from machine polished paint



    Out with the blackfire twins for the paintwork







    The exhausts had most defiitely seen better days, out came the autosol, megs nxt polish & blackfire metal sealant







    50/50


    Both Done





    Nice reflections from the side of the exhaust



    Engine bay was done with 303

    I'm awaiting this poxy module for my door & the pdc controller, really annoying the feck outta me cause way behind in mods now, but new front bar arrived today for S3 kit & new grill should be here to, so with any luck tomorrow that'll be on, then I'll attack the wiring again.

    Nah I think Marcus has that title at moment, lol, then again he's been on here longer than me anyway, but he does do some good mods aswell.

    Looks very nice. I do like the latest shape ML's so much more than the early ones, and that bodykit on the front finishes it off nicely.
