Hello from Wisconsin

Hello, my name is John.

I just started a project to fully restore a 1973 Mercedes 450SL (federal). It is in fairly good shape but needs extensive floor panel repair. Fortunately I've got a great resource for those repairs. Over the next year I will be on this site looking for advice and I appreciate anyones help.

I will be gutting the car down to the shell, fix the rust, then slowly rebuild it bold by bolt.

The car is olive green outside and inside. I'm not sure where to find the interior parts as I haven't seen any options for green interior parts with any of the vendors I've look at, so far.

Nice to meet all of you!! This is going to be fun...

Go Packers!
