Mercedes Benz AMG E-Class Glass Coating and Interior Detailing with Optimum Opti-Clean

Posted the exterior detail and Optimum Opti-Coating of this car here:

After completing the Optimum Opti-Coating very, very, early in the morning... I continued the next day or should I say later that same morning with a light interior cleaning with Optimum Opti-Clean and protected the leather with Optimum Protectant Plus.

Optimum Opti-Clean is the latest product from Optimum Polymer Technologies and is a revolutionary waterless wash which is suitable for cleaning exterior AND interior surfaces.

The glass and wheels were then coated with Optimum Opti-Coat.

For more details of the detail, click the link below:

First up, the Optimum Opti-Clean on the interior.

The waterless nature of Optimum Opti-Clean makes it ideal for cleaning areas where it is inconvenient to use a regular car wash or even Optimum No-Rinse as the area does not need to be dried after. Just spray on the Optimum Opti-Clean and wipe the dirt away. It is a surprisingly effective cleaner and can deal with most regular stains. For more stubborn stains, it is best to switch to Optimum Power Clean.



 Dust and dirt on the surface.

Spray on the Optimum Opti-Clean.

Wipe off.

Leave it to flash off and dry on its own. Done...

It is very convenient for interior surfaces and saves a lot of time as you do not need to wipe it dry. Can even be used on fabric surfaces like the bottom part of this door panel.

Notice the wet area on the fabric section where the Optimum Opti-Clean was used.



Dirt on the MF towel:


Back of the passenger seat.

50/50 after Optimum Opti-Clean.






Back of the driver's side seat. Plenty of scuff marks.

Spray on the Optimum Opti-Clean.

Wipe off and allow to flash off.



Center console.


Plastic door sills.

After: The Optimum Opti-Clean also leaves behind a nice shine on the plastic trim.



The Optimum Opti-Clean can also be used to clean the leather seats.

The dirt pulled out of the leather seat onto the MF towel.

After cleaning the seats were dressed with Optimum Protectant Plus.


After completing the interior I decided to drive the car out to take some shots of the car.

The AMG wheels were also Opti-Coated to protect them and make them easier to clean.



Some sun shots:

Nice triple reflection.

The owner then showed up and I demonstrated the water beading capabilities of the Optimum Opti-Coat.

Sprayed on some water....

Watch it bead off....

The last thing to be done before handing the car back over to the owner was to polish the glass and coat it with Optimum Opti-Coat.

This is where the Flex 3401 comes into its own. The danger with polishing glass with a rotary is the possibility of leaving behind some hazing or scratches due to the rotary action of the polisher. This isn't an issue with a dual-action polisher as it oscillates instead of spins. However, DA's have limited correction capabilities due to this same mode of action. The Flex 3401 marries the best of both worlds as it is a DA polisher with 'forced' rotation. The ultimate correcting ability is not as great as a rotary but it is capable of a decent amount of correction and still finishes off perfectly. Hence, it is an ideal tool to polish glass with.

 The glass was first cleaned with Optimum Power Clean, clayed and then polished with Optimum Hyper Polish with a foam polishing pad with the Flex 3401.

After ensuring the surface has been cleaned and polished an IPA wipedown was done and the surface is now ready for the Optimum Opti-Coat application.

All done. There should now be long-term protection and water repellency for the glass with the Optimum Opti-Coat.

Love the reflections in this shot...

That's it..... all done.

Thanks for looking.

  1. You've done a very thorough job on the auto glass coating on this Mercedes. It looks really nice! I think auto glass coating is really interesting. It seems like it would stay on better than regular tinting. http://www.smltint.com
