Over the years Kent has detailed hundreds of cars and you know from his videos that he likes "extreme" detailing. His absolute favorite two "tools of the trade" are these premium grade microfiber sponges and what he calls his soft bristle "sawed off" paint brushes.
If you own and maintain an older car (especially 15 years and older) you must be willing to take care of its lubrication needs or you may spend big money later in repairs.

Ever wish you could get rid of the annoying wiper scratches on your front windshield (or rear hatch glass if you have a rear wiper)? How about those fine scratches in your side windows caused by dirt in the scrapers with rolling the windows up and down.

Worried about the internal condition of the fuel tank on your old 1959 to 1972 mechanical fuel injected Mercedes? Not sure if it has rust or other contaminants inside it.
Kent has never seen fresh fuel hoses on all the old MFI Mercedes he has worked on over the years. They only seem to get changed when they start leaking. Leaking fuel hoses at the electric fuel pump is a fire hazard!
Leaking fuel injector pumps have become a very common problem in the 60x. engines produced from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s. The early 60x.
Another great solution from Mercedessource!
A broken radiator neck can be safely repaired if it breaks off cleanly in the center or aft of the center of the neck. If it breaks off too close to the tank or breaks off in multiple small pieces then we advise that you replace the radiator.

Distributor neglect is one of the most common neglected maintenance items that we see on the 6 cylinder 103 engine. Just because the engine is running ok does not mean that the parts are not worn out. One day you will get up in the morning and the engine will not start.

Exact tool kit as shown. Pouch will need some cleaning. When was the last time you saw a set of original pliers that were not rusty and worked freely. Can not guarantee every original tool for this model is here. See picture. What you see is what you get.

This kit will allow you to replace the critcal worn parts inside the early 603 U.S. made Garrett T3 turbochargers. This kit will not work if your engine has a KKK turbo made in Germany. The only way to tell which turbo you have is by visual inspection.
The original rubber grommet and plastic elbow will become brittle over the years from the heat of the engine. When you go to remove the breather it will often just break off in your hand! The hard seal allows oil to leak causing a mess around the front of your valve cover.
This is just what the doctor ordered when installing a new seal. This can prevent the lip sealing spring from popping off during seal replacement. When this happens you will never know it because you can not see the sealing spring once the seal is installed!!!
