hi
ive got an e220 w124 with no rust but quite a few scratches and blemishes and 3 dents (small-10p size)on the paintwork.
does anyone know any reputable companies that do a paintwork makeover(for want of a better phrase) and what it might cost me.
the front arches are showing the slightest little signs of bumpiness on the edge.i know everyone says replace the wings but it is very slight and only noticable when running a finger along the edge of the arch.
probably not economically sensible to do all this stuff but it is only 68000 miles with 1 owner before me a full dealer history and my favourite car ive owned(had 107 sl's and have a 124 320 coupe as well but prefer this inexplicably)
any help much appreciated

S class
Scratches.. general rule is if you can feel them with your nail then they are too deep to polish out, tho finer scratches will polish out, as for the small dents try one of the local dent guys, best place for recommendations is to ask local garages whom they use..The rust along the wing edges will only deteriorate and get much worse, there really isnt an easy fix that will last, if you dont wish to repaint or cant afford to then I would suggest that you clean the back of the arches off al muck and dust then apply some waxoyl, or even oil tothe arches and do this on a regular basis ..once a month ..
Have a look on the detailing forums about scratch renovation and see if it appeals to you
