There is nothing better than a good buff and wax to bring out the shine on an old Benz. Particularly if the car has not been waxed in a couple years! The results are directly related to the amount of work you put into it. Of course you have to have stable paint to begin with (no peeling, crazing or cracking). A lot of times the life can be brought back into old paint if you are willing to put in the effort.
In this video seminar Kent uses his own 1990 190E 2.6 to show you how he was able to bring back the original shine on a car who's paint was dull and listless. He briefly discusses the options of doing it by hand or with an inexpensive orbital buffer, but most of this video is about "power" buffing with a high quality electric variable speed polisher. He discusses in detail the products he uses along with the techniques to bring back the new car shine without damaging or cutting through the paint. Once a car is power buffed properly applying the wax or protective sealant is a piece of cake.
