Post New GB member with a 1985 500SL

Hi. Ignoring the ridiculous price of petrol in the UK I've just become the 4th owner of an 83k mile 1985 500SL. Despite it's relatively low mileage it needs some TLC to make it perfect again.

Currently restoring the original Mexican Hat/Baroque wheels with new bolts & centre caps.

Some other jobs required but I'll keep those for the relevant forum section.
