The paint looks pretty good...is there any need for this 3M final cut or imperial hand glaze?
Not to sound harsh. But I do this for a living. This is how I feed my family, pay my bills etc.
You sound like a guy who by your own admission found this car, spit shined it and wants to flip it for you what you perceive to be a quick and easy profit. And god bless you for trying.
You are no doubt inspired by what you have seen on television, specifically Fast N Loud, Wayne Carini's show chasing classic cars (great guy btw, incredibly down to earth), Counting cars, and the whole other slew of recent network programming dedicated to these "car flippers". You don't understand the level of detailing to present a car, as well as the fickle and picky nature of this market. Have you ever BEEN to a Mecum or Russo/Steele auction?
IF you have to ask if the car needs to be buffed sealed and glazed before going there, you obviously are in over your head. And look, everyone starts somewhere, I get that. But these cars that bring the money you think yours will have had the entire undercarriages steam cleaned, the insides of the wheels scrubbed with a toothbrush etc... And that's just for starters.
"Pretty good" paint will not cut it in the collector car market. Especially not with a car you claim is a #2 car with the potential for being a #1. Hate to tell you this but what you have is a #3 driver quality car. #2 car? how many local shows has it won? Has it been authenticated by MB classic center? Do we have the pedigree of the entire car? Nope....
Baby steps grasshopper. Look, listen, learn. We aren't trying to cut you down. We're trying to educate you and point you in the right direction.
