Checkout this latest Signature Detail on a badly neglected CL65 AMG. I wanted to share this phenomenal detail performed by two of our best Gloss-it detailers and upcoming new Signature detailer star in the US Jimmy Lucci.

This story was originally posted on the gloss-it forum by Brian Hare from Detail Werkz out of Dallas Texas. Brian was preparing and giving Jimmy tips before heading to Las Vegas for his Signature detail Certification the week after SEMA.

It was a great honor to work side by side with Jimmy of Lucci Elite Detailing. Jimmy is about to head to Vegas for the 2 week Signature Detailing class at the Gloss It headquarters. It was my honor to have Jimmy help me on this rare 2009 Mercedes CL65 AMG. Jimmy is slightly new to the Gloss-It line and I was glad to help and give him some incite to how to work the Gloss it paint correction polishes and to share some time saving tips to help his detailing career expand.

I spent about 2 hours trying to figure out the best solution to removing the paint imperfections, swirls, holograms the night before Jimmy showed up. I figure it out by using the following gloss-it pads and polishes.high-speed, lambs wool gloss it pad, extreme cut to cut down the deep swirls and rids, and then use the Gloss It green foam on the Flex DA.

Once Jimmy arrived the next day we were ready to tackle this beast. I grabbed the high-speed and the lambs wool and tackled removing the deep swirls and rids, breaking them down into micro swirls where Jimmy came in with the DA Flex and Gloss It green foam and the Evolution Cut polish to remove what I have placed into the paint. Together with this combo we completed the paint correction in just under 10 long hours. So a combined 20 hours were put into this paint correction.

The interior was not left untouched and Jimmy knocked it out by getting in there and using the Gloss-It Satin Leather cleaner and topping all the interior with the Gloss-It Satin Leather Polish. We pulled off each rim and deep cleaned each using the Gloss-It Wheel Gel and using a dilution of the Gloss It wheel gel I was able to bring back life to the dull plastic wheel wells while Jimmy was applying the Gloss It Signature High Gloss to the vehicles paint, glass and head and tail lights. We grabbed a bottle of White Diamond polish and some steel wool and polished and cleaned up the exhaust. Glass was cleaned using Invisible Glass and I applied TRV to the tires to give them a very natural gloss for the photo shoot.

It was a great pleasure to work side by side with Jimmy. I look forward to a great friendship and continue to work side by side with him for my company and his company.

Jimmy thanks for all you back breaking work, and we both taught each other some tips and tricks to making this car look how it does! Way to 'FIRE IT UP BRO'

Great work taming the dreaded MB black. You really don't see many CL65's.
