Think I made a mistake, .... the ones I want ARE 15 inch, thanks for that.
Do not want anything but OEM Mercedes.
I've put about 5,ooo miles on my red SEC since last spring but I'm trying to keep mileage low so I drive my 560SEL or sometimes my 105K miles '91 420 SEL to Pasadena every week from Santa Barbara, about 300 round trip miles. I now work 5-6 day weeks and have maybe 2 days at home so I haven't done very much to any of my cars. (Recently got my 1957 190 Ponton from engine re-build but haven't even had time to drive it past 2 months.
Plans for Almadine Red are (tenatively): to put AMG cams, AMG exhaust system, P&P heads for the engine, and perhaps re-upholster headliner and to replace some wrong-colored leather and plastic parts in front cabin area such as visors.
I keep promising to update the Forum about this car, I'm awful friggin busy and really sorry I haven't done it yet. (At 75 years I keeps asking, ..... where the "F...' does all the TIME go....???"
