MERCEDES R129 SL REPAINTING
The Mercedes SL R129 is only increasing in value. With the number of good calibre cars become more limited every year, standing out from the crowd with a well maintained example is a guaranteed way to safeguard your long-term investment goals.
WHY SHOULD I REPAINT MY R129?
Repainting your R129 SL will offer your vehicle additional protection from the elements, while simultaneously giving you a vehicle that you can be proud of. Scratches, dented, or off colour paint will spoil R129 SL ownership enjoyment. With such unique credential and revered mechanical capabilities, your paintwork should be as powerful.
Most of all, a repainted R129 SL will be above the grade of other examples on the road, allowing you to demand a higher sale price when either you, your children or grandchildren go to sell the vehicle.
R129 REPAINT OPTIONS
1. FULL REPAINT: A full repaint enables us to strip your R129 SL, investigate the entire condition of the bodywork and amend any damage or corroded structural areas such as the chassis legs, front cross-member, wheel tubs et al. We will then repaint the body to factory correct standards and use industry leading rust protection products.
2. PARTIAL REPAINT: A partial repaint could allow you to focus on specifically areas that are faded or scratched – this could be the bonnet or a front offside wing. Our paintshop will expertly blend existing and new panels to ensure a brand new sparkle
3. ISOLATED REPAINT: To counteract damage to specific areas of your R129 SL, we will first repair the damage and then repaint said element for you. This will be expertly blended with the rest of the vehicle so prying eyes will never know.
If you’re interested in protecting your vehicle’s paintwork further, we offer a range of detailing packages to protect and further add depth to your paintwork.
