Post FS: 1991 Mercedes Benz 420SEL

I recently restored everything on this Mercedes thinking I'll be keeping it for a long time but, I can use the money and I don't take this car out as much.
It is the last best car that Mercedes had made (Ask any Mercedes mechanic they'll tell you the same thing).

Mileage: reads 99,000 miles but I recently had the ENGINE NEWLY REBUILT from Metric Motors (they specialize in Mercedes engines) so its basically a brand new car at maybe 2000 miles .
It runs like its brand new out of the dealer, with a smooth idle and strong motor pushing 201 horsepower & 228 torque V8 Rear Wheel Drive.
Color: Jet Black
Interior: Tan Leather
The Interior is in great condition (had seat covers on so the leather is like new) and so is the exterior (has one or two dings).
Wheels: Chrome factory

[OEM Mercedes parts]

Head rebuild (Engine work):
-Valve job
-New intake/exhaust valves
-New seals and guides
-Machine work
-New rocker arms
-New lifters

-Replaced automatic transmission

Additional renewed parts:
-All the belts
-Water pump
-Timing chain
-All the guide rails (timing chain)
-All the gaskets
-Oil pump tensioner
-Oil pump chain
-Air hoses
-Radiator hoses
-Fuel injector o-rings
-Distributor cap & rotor & o-ring
-Ac o-rings
-Fuel filter
-Oil Filter & oil
-Vacuum lines
-E.H.A valve
-Fuel pump relay
-Fuel accumulator
-Idle control valve
-Fuel pumps (this one wasn't recent)
-Tachometer
-European headlights
-Battery
-Sub woofer (sound system)
-Windshield
-Wipers
-Tires (Michelin)
& a lot of other small parts like bolts and washers etc...

Needs:
Ac recharge

I have photos and receipts for everything done if you need proof.

Looking for $9900 obo

At that price, I want Ac recharged.
I'm sure, based on all work done that you mentioned it's not big thing.

It literally takes what? 5-10 min to measure and recharge ac.

The HDR makes the car look sweet, but doesn't tell us a damn thing about its actual condition. If you want too sell that thing around here I'd upload some real pictures.
