Complete restoration of a W111 280SE Convertible

1970 mercedes 280 SE 11102512004319

I have just received my 280 SE Convertible after a long restoration.
A collection of 281 detailed photos.
Have a look at: -->

I will shoot a new collection of photos of the car as it looks now and let you know the link.

Hope you enjoy.

That's beautiful to see. I always wanted to get the '66 back into that new and perfect of a condition, but it's in such great unrestored condition I'll probably never have it done.

WOW MAN...WHAT A BEAUTY....it is gorgeous...

As far as the amount of pictures go; the amount you have is fine....I know first hand how hard it is to do the work and to remember at all times to take pictures....when you get carried away, you just get carried away....
I always forget taking pics, I have been workin gon my 67 coupe for a while, and have missed out on some picture taking.....

Anyways, props to you...that is gorgeous
How long did it take and at what cost if you don't mind me asking?

This is what I have been working on for the past few years, and I cannot wait till it is finished and I can start enjoying it

POS, that is a beautiful 111, do not touch it...that car does not need a restoration...A car can be in original and that beautyful condition only once...
