Most difficult part to take out

It could be me but I swear the most difficult part I have taken out of a car (any car) is the side vent on the w114, I broke one in the process

In any case here are few pics of LEDs for the dash and carbon finer vinyl wrap for the wood veneer

Looks good but I prefer the warm look of the wood, never really got into the carbon fiber look and IMHO it looks out of place here although well done. Glad to see you're having fun with 'her' in any case.

I agree with you. I tried to take the vent off, and broke the wood around it

The heater fan is a fair amount of work to get out.

Those vents don't seem to be designed to come off.

I always thought if the wood was too far gone in a vintage Benz I owned I would either replace it with a metal engine turned dash or painted dash like the roadsters. Not correct but would look great. Have fun with your ride.

Marrs, you have good taste - Frankenbenz is going to get an engine turned dash, and my coupe will have a painted dash!
