Bringing an 1980s Mercedes Classic Back to Life
At White’s Bodyworks, we’ve dealt with a wide range of classic cars over the years and we certainly love to see a Mercedes in the workshop. From repairing dents and putting right the rust to renovating engines and respraying, vintage vehicles often need a lot of repairs, particularly when it comes to that all-important bodywork. That was just the case with this Mercedes 90E which had suffered some serious rear end damage.
The Mercedes 90E
The 90E was introduced in the early 1980s, a time when Europe was suffering from recession. Mercedes wanted to produce a more cost effective car range which people could afford and that would compete directly with BMWs of the time. The car was a big success and it was in production for almost a decade. In recent years it’s come into the classic car range and is seen as a good investment, not only because of the engineering but the solid bodywork as well.
Mercedes 90E Repairs
There was a lot of work to do on the rear end of this delightful looking Mercedes. In the end, it turned out to be something of a full restoration of this area. That included removing the spoilers, repairing the boot lid and sides and then carrying out a repaint that matched the car’s colour exactly. The final finish left the rear end looking as good as new.
