    laquer finish lifting off door panel

    I bought my 55 reg CLK from my local MB dealer in Swansea 2 years ago, with what I was led to belive was full bodywork warrenty (as I wasn't told any different). I now find out, from the MB dealer, that the car had been resprayed (not by a MB dealer) prior to my purchase and therefore he will...

    Pictures of my polished alloys refurbished with a painted finish

    I recently had my wheels refurbished and went with a painted finish instead of the original polished as I want them to last longer. I am well pleased with the results so thought I would share the pictures. Prior to refurbishment they had corroded so badly they leaked air...

    Designo paint finish

    How expensive do you think a repair to a small dent in a designo silver paint finish would be compared with a standard paint? For example is the designo paint itself so much more expensive.

    What finish for me wheels ?

    I have retrieved my untouched for four months Carlssons for the 129. Suspect they'll go off to Rimfurbish. What finish would forum members go for? Open to debate here!! A couple of pics of the car, and the wheels :-

    Good finish required

    A long day today rubbing down and preping one side of the car for paint - the good news is that after 3 coats of primer and 4 coats (+ 1 mist coat) of colour it looks great:thumb: Colour match is spot on and apart from the slightly dull finish it's hard to tell the difference - On my first...

    Best & Most durable wheel finish??

    Hi, Im about to refurb my 17" AMG Style 2's... I have done abit of research, like not to use Spit&Polish... Probably go with Lepsons or BJV. Going to have a diamond cut lip, this is more to do originality than anything else. I know diamond cut is the most vulnerable finish but the car will...

    Ankaa wheel finish

    Can anyone let me know if the Ankaa wheel finish is always polished? I'm thinking of changing the 16" alloys on my Elegance E320 (2004) for a set of 17". Have seen a set of these but the finish is poor so was looking at maybe getting them refurbished but in a silver. After that I'd have them...

    Well its started - apparent problems on alloy wheel finish

    New it was too good to be true! I've noticed that some of the finish on the edges of the "spokes" on my alloy wheels appears to be lifting or bubbling. Only minor at the moment but for a 6 month old car it doesn't bode well. I'll take them to the dealers for warranty, no doubt they will want...
