    Been polishing a black CLK320 today, It had just been to the bodyshop for the bonnet and passanger side to be painted due to being keyed.

    This is how it returned......

    After I tested an area with the polsiher.

    I will be giving my trader the pics to show them yes. Normally their work is pretty good but seems they have started to rush the jobs lately.
