Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 1999 Mercedes Benz E430. This Luxurious mid-sized Mercedes came to our shop looking extremely un-luxurious. Its original paint had started to fade and discolor years back, eventually turning into the dull greyish tone that you can see in our pictures. The roof was particularly rough, it required stripping down to the bare metal due to a case of failed (cracking or "microchecking") primer beneath the paint, as for the rest of the car, we removed all of the light chips and scratches to prevent them from showing through the new paint. Once the base surfaces were nice and smooth we applied a primer sealer for the new paint to bite onto, and finally repainted the exterior with its original glossy black paint!
