That is some amazing work - really brought that W124 back to life. Those cars are so solid.

Yeah, I have to compound it, polish it, sealed it and waxed it after the wet-sanding. It's a very big job, very time consuming but the results are worth the hard work every time.

Thanks man! Yeah the owner really liked that car, that's why he is so happy the way it looks now.

Glad you like the change...
A few people have stopped by this morning that saw the car before and can't believe is the same car.
It's definitely the biggest job I've done and the one that really turned the car around the most from what it was.

Owner just came to pick it up...
Later!

You just know, it all depends how the paint or clear is and what you are trying to remove by sanding it off.

Yeah, some people just panic when they see their car without any finish on the paint after it gets wet sand it .

No he is not trying to completely restore it, just to a point that he feels confortable with the way it looks. Now he is happy with the paint and the way the Mercedes Looks. He is not a big fan of the black tail lights or black rims so those have to go. When I install the new tail lights and rims I'll take new pics, that alone will transform even more this car.

There's also scratches and other imperfections to wet sand out. Orange peel can also be eliminated or reduced by wet sanding.

Tom, the car looked much better today after I received the MB hood emblem and asked the owner to stop by for me to install it, a few minutes later I had it installed and now it looks like a real Mercedes lol. Can't wait for the tail lights and rims to come in.

I'm still scratching my head here, should I just go and give it a shot?

my shop teacher might let me try it on a few of the cars at the schools disposal.
