Was it just repainted or why is it missing wheel covers and blinker bullets? Absolutely stunning color, one that looks exceptional in bright sunlight.

No blinker bullets, thankfully, on this one which has Euro lights.... It has been recently painted and I only know that from other sites where the OP has posted little snippets of this car in different stages of its restoration....Eventually he'll bring this post here up to speed....

I am back, and just to clarify any confusion here, NO the car has not recently been repainted. Car was painted 20 years ago, that is correct I did say 20 years.. The car was stored away after being painted, the car was brought to my father who has extensive knowledge and knows w111s as well as 113,198, and so on.. The car is completely done now and can be seen at cars and coffee just about every weekend.

I am assuming cars and coffee in Irvine? I'd want to see it get ideas about the restoration for my project.
