Detailing Dirtiest Car Ever! First Wash in 37 Years Mercedes 280 SL

  • Published on Aug 18, 2019
  • This was one of my favorite details and films I've ever produced. David has been asking his 83 year old father (doctor who work in NYC and travels back and forth to NJ daily) to pull his 1969 Mercedes 280 SL out of their old garage and restore it so it can be passed down to his grandchildren. David asked if we could pull the Mercedes out of the garage (where it has been for 37 years) and detail it enough so that it inspires his father to give the green light for restoration. Watch the step by step process of removing the mold, dead animals, dust, dirt, and oxidized paint back to life. Hope you enjoy the reveal :) -Larry

    I am die hard fan on car restoration subject and can go extreme levels to get on to the nerve of car restoration. I own several cars including few luxury cars like skoda and Isuzu. Why the cost of cleaning and other resources used is not mentioned.

    Отмыли зашибись. Но было бы круто, если бы его завели и прокатились. А то отмыли - и обратно в гараж еще на 37 лет. Неполноценное видео.

    The car looked prefect after the detail job. Why would he go for a full restoration? I would change the fluids and clean the gas tank and get new tires and drive it.
