Here we have a Full respray on a Mercedes SLK AMG we did for a customer in May this year.

The customers main objective was to eliminate the usual rust points, being the front wings and the rear arches. But also to give the whole car a new lease of life with fresh paint making the car as close to possible as factory original.

We started off by completely stripping the car down to bare panels. This includes the wings coming off, both front and rear bumpers, the bonnet, all mouldings and clips that can be seen, every handle and mirror. Basically everything that can be stripped is removed.

The wings themselves were far too rusted to salvage, so 2 original Mercedes wings were ordered. Everything else was in good enough shape to be repaired/repainted, so work began with any welding that we needed doing due to rust (mainly the rear arches) followed by any dents/blemishes being panel beaten and primed up ready for painting.

After being primed the car is left for between5-7 days for the primer to set and sink. After a full inspection by our painter, the go ahead was given for the painting.

Due to being a full repaint nothing was missed, any place that the car was originally painted in the factory, has also been painted by us. After painting the car was then fully sanded and machine buffed to bring the paintwork back to perfection.
