Default O'Cedar polish

Polished the wood veneer's in the 300SE using the O'Cedar furniture polish by using a soft cloth to buff on and buff off the polish.

Also polished the windows with AutoGlym glass polish in my opinion an excellent product!

I have never seen the windows look so clean in the Mercedes.

I am quite impressed with the results.

What is your opinion?

Very impressive, indeed!

While I imagine either product fetches a pretty penny, they clearly work great.

Appreciate the feedback gentlemen.

O'Cedar costs $10 give or take available from the Supermarket.

The AutoGlym glass polish cost $20 from auto parts suppliers.

The glass has never looked so 'clean', on the 300SE.

Those costs actually don't sound anywhere near as high as I was expecting.

Very nice.

I'm with you on that one Andrew.
I thought young Mr Tim might have splurged a fortune...

What glass? It's so clear I can't see it!
Both those products are first rate for their purpose Mr Tim.

Prices may vary for both polishes I imagine.

None the less both are good value.

The glass polish has improved the visibility out of the front screen greatly!

Just having another look at your efforts. Of course, I can't see the glass, but is your rear parcel shelf somewhat faded from exposure to the sun ? Also, that driver's seat.......? ....somewhat worn ? Regards Styria

N.B. Otherwise, everything looks very spiffy. Oops, moderator reply - no censure intended.

Oh dear! A big smack for the Moderator! That is called patina on the seat and shows it is original. As for the rear parcel shelf, that effect is probably caused by tinted glass rather than sun-fading.
Don't worry Mr Tim - continue to post pictures of your baby. I'll deal with the recalcitrant Moderator!
Regards,
Brian

Might not be an easy job BenzBoy I wish you the very best of luck!


Under the rear parcel shelf the 300SE still has the original Mercedes first aid which has never been opened.

I'm surprised how many of these older Benzes still have their original first-aid kits still mostly or even completely intact/untouched.

It's almost like the drivers/passengers never needed first-aid

First aid kit and manual most of text is written in German.

The kit has all the original bandages and surgical scissors plus a white chalk stick.

Not sure what the chalk stick would be used for in case of an emergency?

Look at the rear parcel shelf Styria it does not look faded or sun damaged to me what do you think?

The chalk is to draw an outline around the bodies
