We were recently asked if we could correct the black paint on this 1992 Mercedes without swirling the paint. The entire surface had severe etching in the clear coat, most notably on the horizontal panels such as the hood and the trunk lid where the etching was much deeper. We knew that this would be a very time consuming challenge because there would be a large amount of wet sanding involved which always requires additional steps in the buffing process as well in addition to having black paint. Black paint is usually on of our specialties, but this was going to be a serious test. After thoroughly hand washing the car, we clayed and prepped the paint. This is how the hood looked after washing and claying.
