    How to restore matt aluminium trim?

    I wanted a sports gearshift, which only became available about two years after my car was built, so even though it has a factory Sports option, the gearshift is Avantgarde. So I bought one now, but would like to bring the aluminium trim (and leather, but that's easy) to an as new condition...

    S212 H76 Aluminium interior door trim

    Hi all, I recently bought a 2013 S212 with the H76 Aluminium interior. I think the previous owner may have had a dog, or quite simply horrible passengers as the left side door trims both have scratches all over. I'd really like to replace them both but I can't track down a part number...

    W209 CLK350 interior tweaks

    I just got a 2006 CLK which is in really good condition, so good that I would like to see about fixing the few minor things I've noticed... 1) Somehow the dimpled aluminium interior trim pieces that run along the driver/passenger door panels have both got several marks on them. Anyone know...

    B Class W245 Aluminium Dashboard Trim Kit

    Fitted an Aluminium effect dash trim kit to my 2007 W245. Fits very well, feels a bit like a latex rubber if you've been lucky enough to feel that texture lol. I applied some 3M Primer to aid adhesion and it has all held well and seems secure enough, time will tell. Main Dash Before and...

    Aluminium Repair

    Have just found a small crack in the sump pan, probably due to hitting one too many speed bumps with this low car. MB price for the part is circa £280, a couple on ebay range from £100-£130. I wouldn't mind the latter but just checked WIS and it's not a simple bolt on - bolt off. The labour...

    S212 aluminium centre console trim

    Hi My recently acquired S212 Sport (on a 62 plate) has a few unsightly scratches on the left hand aluminium trim that curves around the edge of the centre console. There are some on eBay from the face lift models. Are these bits of trim likely to be the same on both the facelift and my...

    Clear laquer over aluminium

    I have a 42 year old Japanese motorbike with original clear laquered engine parts. How does it stay on when modern alloy wheels only survive for a few years? Aluminium needs an etch primer to seal it before painting. This cannot be done if the finish is clear.

    Tarnished aluminium trim

    My red car has a lot of aluminium trim that was pretty badly tarnished. Using Autosol got rid of much of the tarnish but still pretty flat to look at: By chance I was using Meguiars Ultimate protectant on some of the black finish by the aluminium, and some of it ended up there - I wiped it...

    Welding Aluminium (OxyA)

    A quick query... it's been a few years since I've welded, but have always done so with an OxyA torch on steel... To save weight, I'm thinking of making bits out of aluminum and bolting them on. Any suggestions for someone who hasn't welded in a while and never done aluminum? M.

    Aluminium pedals

    So when looking for a Merc I came across a C200K with aluminium pedals fitted to it which looked fantastic. My CLK just has the usual ones and I'm looking to upgrade them. I found this set on eBay but I'm not a fan of the AMG logo - as I don't have an AMG. I suppose a little...
