Some pics, 75 w116

Just for fun. This is what this site is helping me get on track. Thanx to all that take these cars seriously and love to see them on the road. Sometimes I take the long way home, cuz I don't want to stop driving!

Yeah! I have been privileged to have ridden a W116 and I barely felt the bumps. Your SEL has blue interior?

Yes, Typical blue. Not in the best of shape, no pic of that, sorry. I recovered the rear deck and the rear back rest with a blue marble Naugahyde. I'll post some pics of that later. Turned out good. That was years ago, if I can still find it I'll do the rest.

That's the stuff!
Mine's a repaint too. I guess my grandpa got stuck in a hail storm in Zion in the early 90's, it was bad enough to dent all the panels.
Car was dismantled and hammered out. Great job too, no orange peel, perfect!
