OK you guy convinced me, it doesn't look as good as I thought. Maybe it was just pic angle or color.
But I still what those doors.
PS. I can only hope your sl's c's are driving as nice as mine is
Ah that magic feeling of being post mortgage and zero debt. (between repairs)

damn there are some ugly SL's in the states...
none of them like like the koenig widebody i've seen though- theyre all much uglier
for what it is worth, i will say, that colour is the most important choice when it comes to OTT kits like these....
then there are the obligatory suspension, brake and engine mods which need to match the loud styling proportionately.
unfortunately for me, the koenig i remember sighting, wasn't a 107- it was a 129. the charcoal one above is a 107 but the deck lid spoiler wrecks it totally (as well as the headlamps, but not a lot can be done about that)
Edit: anyone able to read mandarin???

I have a customer with a '79 450SL which has a Koenig Specials wide body kit and he's looking to have the car fully restored (to each his own). The entire car is in pretty rough shape and Koenig states that the kits for the 107 SL are not available anymore. Does anyone know where I could find a complete Koenig Specials body kit for this car? Thanks in advance for your reply.

I was going to say that the blue one is a Koenig excepting the hood scoop. I was told that the "whale tail" IS actually part of the widebody kit.
I like the one from NR. Very subtle, like the AMG or Lorinser kit. I'd go that way. Finding anything as far as a Koenig, AMG or Lorinser will be like a needle in a haystack, IMO.
Here's the BEST kit...

Whomever said the AMG was not fiberglass in one of these old posts was not correct. My '84 is glass.

Thanks rowdie. Yes, fiberglass. Apparently, this car was in a chase scene in an original Miami Vice episode and purportedly 8 feet in the air. In fact if you look up in the rear wheel wells, you can see scrub lines where tires have rubbed. The owner also stated that Chubby Checker owned the car at one time. That, I'll never know, but I do have the Miami Vice DVD collection so I'm looking for that chase scene. I agree I will have to work with the Koenig Specials body kit as is and repair the fiberglass if a donor kit cannot be located.

I have NOS (unused, unpainted) AMG side skirts and rear apron for a R107. PM me offline and we can do a trade or something...
