NX-1 --- Mercedes 560 SL (Before and After Pics)

What do you guys think about this old Mercedes I did today?
The paint was so faded, dull, dirty, scratched, swirls, bird poop etched, rough... well pretty much all you can think this paint had, it had.

The before pics you see are after I washed the car, I forgot to take pics before I washed it, when it was given to me it was full of bird poop all over and I mean a lot, it was heart braking to see that car like that.

When I was done with the car I felt like I had just rescued it, or at least gave it a few more years. I was very pleased with the results, hopefully the owner feels the same tomorrow morning when he picks it up.
Some of the people that saw the car before I started it and saw the results told me that the car looked like if was repainted.
Pictures don't do justice to the before and after seriously.

BTW, all of this pictures are taken with my cell phone's 3.2MP.
Not my main Canon camera.
Only editing I've done is to cover the license plates on some of the cars.

OK here are the pics....
BEFORE





















AFTER

Thanks Scott! They might seem ugly now but I bet back in it's days that car had to be hot.
I'll be doing one of the new ones soon, I'm sure you'll like it. And a black on black SL55 AMG is schedule to come in also, that is a nice looking car...
I'm currently doing an older style S500, you know the older bigger boxier style but I think is a very nice looking car, just wait and see when I'm done with it this weekend.... I already took many of the BEFORE pics, now I need the AFTER pics
