Thought all Mercedes had a clear coat. Certainly gives even non-metallic paint that extra finish.

Forgot to say that I did mechanically polish the clear coat mainly because I had such trouble with it. I could not get a coat free from "orange peel". It polished up really well using Farecla. The final finish is hand applied.
