She's got high heels on.......

just got my diamond back tires mounted. makes a big difference in driving, rather than on the old dry rotted ones. she sits on rims i got from a salvage, after i cleaned and painted. hub caps were ebay and in 3 diffrent colors, had them stripped and painted too. DB 205/75R14 with 2 1/2 white walls. i saw some old pics of the car with WW and wanted them put back on. not sure if they are period, but.....too late now. i think its cool. thats what counts right??? any comments please post. i hate to think i went overboard. cheers.

oh yeah changed the clear turn signal up front and removed the tail bumpers. last 3 pics are when i got the car, before and after.

That is one BEATUIFUL merc.[8)] I think that whatever you have done (indicators, whitewalls, car colour & rear bumper etc..) was just what it needed.

I'm having a "Needful Things" flashback complete with Mr Gaunt.

Nice work on the beautiful Benz. That is really worth preserving is that new paint on the car or did you find some magic restoration compound?.

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.

Damn! That is one hot looking W111! Very classic with those white walls. I bet that was a pretty penny. I got some thin walls and I think in the future might get some like yours. Looks great. You've come a long way since you first posted! Keep it up.
