Interior Work?

Anyone know any good websites or places where I can order ALL interior parts for a 250se? (Seats, wood, mirrors, radio, etc.)

You won't find a one-stop shop for everything, but:

-interiors: World Upholstery (dot) com. I've used them for stuff for a W111, W114 and my 108. They have everything from carpet sets, to whole skins of leather, to dyes. They make it all to order too so you can go crazy with wanted/intended color schemes.

-wood: Heritage Wood has been called out repeatedly on this site. I can't swear to their work, but their website shows some pretty amazing transformations. I've done all my own wood work.

-mirrors: your best bet is to try eBay or a pick apart yard. You can also try the stealership or Classic Center, but prices can be high. The moderator of this forum, GermanStar, also has a lot of stuff in stock.

-radio: try a general internet search or a general search of this forum, for Becker Radio reproduction. I've seen a couple outfits that make reproduction radios that look like the old ones, but have new guts. Another option is Best Buy, where you can buy yourself a Pioneer or Blaupunkt

I would definitely agree on World Upholstery, as they can do the whole interior and everything will match. Not cheap, but they do quality work.

Heritage Woodwork is the place to go. Drew, the owner, is an absolute perfectionist and does work that is museum/restoration quality without exception. I knew an owner of a 220 cabriolet that had Drew did the dash on, and the finish took your breath away it was so good.

Call Ed at Becker North America and you'll be talking to one of the owners and someone who does the work. They regularly restore and repair Beckers of all vintages, and may even have optional parts for things like shortwave receivers if you want them. They can even add aux inputs to the older models so you can play your iPod through them and not whore up your dash with some flashy late model import head unit. Great people who do awesome work.

I have direct experience with all of these suppliers and would not hesitate to use or recommend them.

Dan

Madera Concepts in Goleta California is also a respected wood restoration shop. They did the wood for my 250 SL and it looks perfect.
