    Auto Obsessed performed a Summer Prep Detail to this 2014 Mercedes SLK. The exterior underwent a full decontamination wash including iron and tar removal. The wheels, wheel wells, doorjambs, exhaust, and engine bay were extensively detailed with a host of OBSSSSD Premium Products. The interior was detailed and the leather was treated with the Swissvax suite of leather care products. We then finished the vehicle in Gtechniq Exo v2 nano coating.

    The full OBSSSSD product line can be found here: http://obssssdproducts.com

    PROCESS - Checking the TDS levels of the water after it runs through our CR Spotless DIC-20 water filtration system. Using filtered water makes drying the vehicle much easier since the water is mineral-free which minimizes the chances of the water leaving water spots.
