I just thought that I'd share some pictures of my SL500 after detailing. It took me about a week (off and on) but I'm quite happy with the results. :)

Very nice! Great work on the engine bay. I didn't tackle mine yet as my hood pad is coming to pieces - I'll get the new one installed before I clean the bay.

What sealant/was did you use?

Thank you very much! I have the same problem with my hood pad, and plan to have it replaced sometime next month.

The engine is actually alot cleaner now, as I've spent a few additional hours cleaning it....it takes FOREVER!

When you ask what sealant I used, are you referring to what was applied to the paint or to the engine?

Yes, I was asking about the paint. I'm curious as we both have red SL's.

I polished the car with Griots Machine Polish 3 prior to applying three coats of Griots Best of Show Wax. ;)

Later today, I'll send you a P.M. with my entire method. ;)
