Husker fan joins the Mercedes World

I have recently purchased a '76 Mercedes 450SLC. Very nice car, but needs some tender loving care. I have all the seats out right now getting new upholstery put on.

I have taken out all the carpet and have the new carpet ready to put in. The biggest problem with the whole project so far, has been the original colors.

The window sticker says the interior is moss green, but a had a real hard time finding anyone that had that color of carpet. The upholstery was originally leather, but can't find the right color, so had to go with MB tex vinyl to get the right color.

Now I have to get the carpet back down. Any ideas about what kind of glue was used to put this down? Anybody else re-carpet the first aid kit lid in the back glass deck? How did you do that? Any pictures available?

Thanks for "listening", love the way this car rides and hope to be driving it again soon.
