Every car is different.

Even when analysing cars of the same model and production year, there are no two identical cars. Cars are treated differently during their lives. They operate in different climatic conditions, on roads treated with salt in winter, or in coastal areas. Each of them needs individual treatment, due to their unique condition.

Renovation

We know that renovation carried out according the highest standards is an important and multi-stage process, so we start the work by disassembling the car into its first parts. In our modern workshops in Golęczewo, we make a detailed inventory of disassembled parts, dividing them into the following categories, depending on their wear and tear:

  • parts requiring regeneration,
  • parts requiring reconstruction,
  • brand new parts.

How do you renovate Legends cars?

Renovation of Legends is a multi-stage process conducted in line with the highest applicable standards. 

We begin our work by disassembling the car into individual parts at our modern workshop in Golęczewo. After taking a detailed inventory, we assign parts depending on their state of wear and tear to the following categories:

 

  • parts suitable for renovation,
  • parts that require reconstruction,
  • factory-new parts.

In the next few steps, the body is cleaned and sent to the Legends sheet metal department to undergo some time-consuming works. After the sheet metal work has been completed, the bodywork is transferred to the specialised Legends paint shop. At the same time, the mechanical teams renovate suspension components, rebuild the drivetrain, engine and transmission components. Another team ensures the right condition of interior elements and car accessories.

After several months of works completed by dedicated teams, an exemplary Mercedes is created, which does not differ from the original vehicle that came out of the Mercedes factory years earlier. For all stages of the renovation, the car owner is provided with extensive photographic documentation and an ability to monitor progress of the renovation works online.

Car body shop

When the bodywork is stripped of all equipment and interior fittings, the car body is cleaned and begins its long in the Legends car body shop. After cleaning, the car body reveals all its secrets, flaws and shortcomings, but this is not a problem for our specialists. With their knowledge, experience, technology and, above all, support of specialists, we are able not only to repair, but also recreate a body element damaged by corrosion. Having the factory documentation of a given model and a frame that serves as a model, we can recreate even the frame structure of the car, maintaining the standards and processes used in its production.

Paint shop

When the work in the car body department is completed, the body is taken over by Legends paint specialists. Painting a vehicle requires not only a wide selection of painting products, but also a dust-free cabin and a preparation zone - something obligatory for every professional paint shop Decontamination, degreasing, securing, surface levelling, evaporation and seasoning are long-term processes that require precision.

When the car body is ready to be painted in a dust-free cab, the paints and technology are selected and approved. Then the colour is applied, according to the palette chosen by the vehicle owner.

Mechanics

Simultaneously to the preparation and painting processes, the mechanical departments renovate the suspension components and restore elements of the drive system, engine and transmission system.

Interior

The interiors of classic Mercedes cars are works of applied art, just like the iconic and trend-setting silhouettes of these vehicles. A separate team takes care of the correct condition of the interior and accessories of the renovated car.

We will make sure that the chrome, wooden or leather elements of the interior look like they have left the workshops in Mercedes-Benz factories.

Completion of the process

After a few months of work carried out by our dedicated teams, your Mercedes will be ready, looking identical as the brand-new original. For all stages of renovation, the car owner receives a rich photographic documentation and has the opportunity to monitor the renovation works online.
