One of the handiest wrenches you can own! This double reversing ratcheting S wrench can save the day! Works great for 17 mm nuts like on bumpers and alternator brackets and the 15 mm can work on some hard to get to flex disk bolts.

Door hinge lubrication has to be one of the most neglected maintenance items on the older models. I think part of the problem stems from the fact owners don't know how to do it or don't know how to acquire the proper grease gun to lubricate those special fittings on the door hinges.
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 find a good way to lube the door hinges on your old Benz? Maybe you have seen that little fitting wondering what it is, or maybe you have heard there is a special grease gun that can inject grease into that fitting?
Purchase together and save $$$$. 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)?
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.
This video will take you step by step through the process of using our glass polish kit with a multitool to remove those fine scratches from your windshield or rear hatch glass. It also works great for polishing the water and acid rain out of any glass, including shower doors!
In this short video Kent will show you how he first tests the sunroof drains for blockage and then how he goes about cleaning out any blockage.
On older Mercedes spot rust can be a hidden problem under side moulding trim, under fenders and rocker panels and inside the bottom edges of doors.
Mercedes 108, 109, 114, 115, 116, 123, 126, 124 and 201 chassis window trim has a super strong anodized coating that is imperious to hand polishing but still can oxidize when exposed to harsh environmental elements.
Here is a chance to deck out your Benz this Holiday Season, or give as a gift to the Mercedes fan! How awesome is this for some real Christmas decor! Kent found these and just had to have them to offer to our customers for the holiday season. Available here in a GREEN/RED combination.
For all 111, 112, 108, 109, 114, 115, 107, 116, 123, 126 and 201 chassis (Non tilting roofs up through 1986). Do you have a power sunroof that is working poorly or maybe not at all?
Manual sunroofs can have problems too. Just like their electrically operated counterparts, most often they will fail due to lack of lubrication. The number one failure point is a broken T handle. Number two is failure of the roof to close properly due to damaged felt feet and plastic slides.
Groaning, snaping and jammed door check straps are a common problem on the older models (up through 1995). This is primarily due to age and lack of lubrication. Newer models will soon start having similar problems. Rain water getting inside the doors is the big killer.
In this 10 minute video class Kent shows you what you should initially look for when checking out an older Mercedes for sale. He routinely does a quick 3 to 5 minute walk around to determine if the car passes his priority three part test.
Those three areas on inspection are:
Mercedes 114, 115, 107, 116, 123, 126, 124 and 201 chassis window trim has a super strong anodized coating that is impervious to hand polishing but still can oxidize when exposed to harsh environmental elements. When this happens the trim becomes spotted and milky in color and it is NOT pretty!
Includes 30 red plastic clips, a "new style" removal tool and detailed instructions. Note: The instructions included in this kit do not show the actual use of this "new tool".

You can choose this badge to read either MERCEDES BENZ or MERCEDESSOURCE. Please email us YOUR CHOICE after placing the order. This is a handcrafted chrome grill badge we are having made in Europe and shipped to us in a very unique wood box. The quality is out of this world!
This video will show Kent's technique on how to prime and paint alloy wheels using our wheel paint kit and masking dam that we sell separately. See below. The techniques will also apply to any spray can paint you should choose to use.
This is the actual set of hubcaps you will receive. Not perfect but above average with no big dents and only slight flaws and scratches around some of the edges. These look great on the car!
Maybe you have even tried this only to have to patch fall on the floor when you walk away... ( it has happened to Kent... :-) ).
This can happen when you least expect it! It happened to me right when I purchased a W109 300SEL and it can be really frustrating.
This super fine cloth along with Miracle Paint can really do some fine rust repair detailing. You can use it on a rough pitted area that you want to smooth out. Put on a couple layers of cloth and coat with Miracle Paint. Let dry and block sand.
This on-demand training video will walk you through the steps you need to follow in order to get your headliner panel off so you can work on the sunroof. If your sunroof won't open, you are stuck - right? Not SO according to Kent.
Have you ever been embarrassed by opening and closing one of your car's doors? What is that annoying noise bystanders may ask?
This kit includes everything you will need to successfully install a new foam hood pad in your older Mercedes. By successful, we mean getting in on straight and having it stay in place for the life of the pad! If you think it is a no-brainer, think again.
Removing the tilting sunroof panel is a little bit of a mystery to many owners. Since there are no exposed fasteners, at first glance it can appear to be very difficult to remove.
Indications that your seal needs replacing are tears in the lip and no resistance when you close your trunk. If you trunk snaps shut too easily it means the seal has collapsed and is no longer sealing properly.
Extreme Detailing Part 2: Exterior Deep Cleaning in Preparation for Buffing and Waxing - On Demand Video
If a car has sat outside in the elements for long periods and has not been washed or waxed in months there are some things you need to do BEFORE you apply the buffer to the body and the final wax to the paint. This is where you will need some real "elbow grease."
In this video Kent will show you how to rid your car of those less than attractive rock chips and other paint flaws from door dings and general scratches. He will walk you through the paint and supplies you will need and then demonstrate step-by-step using a 2000 S500 and a 2000 E320 wagon.
When Kent set out to find a good fender cover for his own use he and Kaia decided to make it available to our customers. Who doesn't like a good soft fender cover that stays in place? We know red shows the grease more than black but you have to admit these are a knockout!
We have tried countless different chrome polishes over the years and this is by far the best. Be sure to check out Kent's video showing the results as he polishes the chrome on his 1959 220SE. Polishes with a chemical action so does not wear you out... :-). Made in Germany.
Do you have a manual or power sunroof that is working poorly or maybe not at all? Does it move slowly in the morning, but when it heats up during the day it works just fine? Do you have to assist it by hand to get it fully opened or closed?

If you have ever thought about replacing the seals in your sunroof here is a chance to read the manual so you can gauge the difficultly of the job. Seals and other repair parts can be purchased separately at a later date.
