I have a 6 week old (to me) E63S Wagon which I have been enjoying.
A week or two ago I spotted some lacquer peel on the nearside front performance calipers (red ones), thought "oh bugger, I'll get that relacquered ASAP".
Just been out to check on it and the other to find that...
I have a four year old A class which I bought two years ago from a MB dealership as an approved used. I also paid for the paintwork to be treated.
In December 2016 I noticed that the bumper lacquer was peeling. I took it to the body shop at the dealership and they took photos to...
See attached photo... it looks like condensation or haze but it is in fact scratches to the top coat. Someone must have tried cleaning it using the wrong materials.
What's the best way of sorting it, short of buying a second-hand ash tray cover from eBay (which would be my next move if I fail...
Have two spare wheels (rims) and would like to "prettify them" before putting them back on the car.
They are not bent/buckled or structurally damaged but aesthetically ..........please see attched.
Unsure if they can be cleaned and relacqured without diamond cutting OR they need to be recut...
I need some advice please. I have noticed some lacquer peel on the front drivers side wing and bumper. The car is a W204 C220CDi Sport on a 57 plate. I know of lacquer/paint issues on the red W204's. My car was recently in the local MB dealer for an MOT and it looks like they have been...
I've been tidying my rusty wheel arches on the old s210 recently. I'm reasonably happy with my work so far. I've rubbed down, filled and sprayed from an aerosol. Now ready for lacquer.
On a small test area I couldn't get a good blend into the rest of the wing. In the region of the blending...
Bit of advice really . Seems like the coating/lacquer is coming off in patches around he front of my e class & starting to look bit of a mess , no rust just looks like it's peeling
Any one any remedies :mad::confused::crazy:
As above: I am spraying lacquer over paint. Both are top quality products (Glasurit). It is a small area (fag packet) The lacquer is clouding / going milky.
Am I putting to many coats on?
Is it to wet/damp?
I am just wafting it over and not laying it on thick.
As has been discussed before, red ones often have lacquer issues. Most report pitting and micro bubbles in the lacquer, but mine has this and also peeling lacquer where it's coming away from the paint, all over the car. I can't even sponge and water bucket wash the car anymore without...
I have a couple of chips in the lacquer on my ML, about the size of a coin i thought i might have a go at at least improving with some lacquer i have. Anyone had a go at this sort of thing? i`m not expecting miracles but it would be nice to improve the appearance a bit
I've got a patch where the lacquer has come off on the boot lid and it just keeps getting bigger with each car wash.
I've done bits of spraying in the past, bumpers, etc, but this is right on top of the boot lid and I don't want to attempt to respray the whole thing, and am...
I've owned a (2008) W164 ML for the last 1.5 years. Over the past 6 months the paint has developed milky patches. My local garage (not a dealer) says it the paint delaminating and the lacquer is comign away from the paint underneath.
This was an expensive car for me and one that I've...
Just thought I would share with you the ultimate 50/50 I demo'ed at the mbclub open day we had late last year at the studio. Well worth the look at what can be fixed:

As the title says!
This was mbclub member 'Aeroman' 2013 Bentley GTC 4,000 miles after it was in for the full works. This shows how the coatings work a 6 months into being applied on a dirty car. This was just before christmas, so enjoy,

Not an MB, so wont do a write up here (unless theres enough volume of members interested) but a final shot and a 'walk around' HD video of the car on completion. Was in for the following this week gone:
-Full correction detail.
-Complete wheels off detail.
Had this in for the last 2 days. Is a customer who had his another mb in for the same service. Loved it so much he booked this mb in. This was a crystal lacquer protection for paint, glass and wheels inc wheels off. Two of the wheels needing refurbing so we completed that too and the...
As above, the car is two years old and has done 8500 miles and the lacquer is coming off the rear brake calipers leaving them a nice pink colour. The car has never seen a track. Do you think this should be sorted under warranty?
I've just bought a cheap set of w124 8 hole alloys from fleabay to experiment on (Too much time on my hands at the mo), and already have most of what I need to refurb them.
The one thing I do need to buy is a clear lacquer as they'll be painted.
Looking around online there are various products...
I am planning to tackle the Tin Worm on my E220.
I have primer and rust killer. I even have some 744 silver.
I would like to know what type of lacquer to put on top.
Would rattle cans do a good job or would I best get some 2k lacquer?
