RE: She's got high heels on.......
Catboy - what the hell is a trilby??? and i wasnt going for a gangster look, pimp maybe, but not gangster. just wanted it to looked like it did in an old pic, still not sure if it was original with wide white walls or not.
Samuri - i didnt lay paint, the car originally was olive green. i sent VIN to MB and got fax from germany of build sheet. my uncle had the thing painted black and redid the leather interior. it has since then worn, both paint and leather, paint being the worst. it sat in a driveway for years. the leather came back with a good cleaning and conditioner. i had to wet sand the paint. i did 1500 grit to 2000 grit to buff to polish buff to resin seal to wax. like i said, a truck load of grez. close up of paint shows some rust bubbles, chicps, cracks and some flakes. its not perfect by any means, looks better in pics. its not that bad, but not new either.
