Mercedes 190 SL Barn Find.
This is a documentation of a true barn find. The car is a 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster. It was purchased from a 90 year old woman in NJ. The car had not been on the road since 1993 when her husband died. Using a clay cleaning system and 3 step polishing with an oribital polisher, I brought the cars finish back to life. I took about 200 photographs about ever 5 minutes, over 3 days. The total elapsed time was about 14 hours. I hope you enjoy whatching as much as I enjoyed bring the car back to life! Thanks for watching.
