A very good client of mine recently took delivery of this brand new Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series and brought me out to correct it and coat it with CQuartz Finest. I've enjoyed working on a couple of his C63 AMG Black Series, but I was very excited to work on his SLS AMG Black Series. It was fortunate enough to escape a dealer wash, but there were still issues from the factory to be sorted out. A solid 3 days went into this beauty at the beautiful facility of Club Auto Sport in San Jose, CA. After it was completed, I had my friend James Larieau come out and shoot some nice photos of this very special car. Onto the pics......





As I arrived at Club Auto Sport, the SLS Black had all its shipping wrapping and padding still in place. I love getting cars this "factory fresh"


















Very cool emergency trunk release button flashing green....just in case you get locked in the trunk.












Even though no dealer washed the car, it was far from defect-free. It had its fair share of light marring, swirls, hard water spot etching, and extensive DA sanding marks.


























Compounding residue, thank you factory...

At this point I brought Ryan out to help me get the final compounding and polishing done. The hood required 16hrs by itself to correct the extremely heavy DA sanding marks




Eye of the tiger look....






Taking readings on the CF wing and correcting it













Engine bay was pretty rough. RIDS, hard water etching, and swirls












Looking better after correction and coating
