Finally some paint on my 250C.

All areas that are not to be color sanded have been painted and clear coated. Next comes all exposed sheet metal with a base coat, pearl coat, metallic coat, three coats of clear. Wait 6 weeks and then the top coat of clear will be sanded down to a liquid gloss finish.

Nice man... How was that with w115, was the same paint as it was on the exterior also on the "both side" of the trunk I mean in and out or was it only on the trunk (outside) and inside was not painted that color?

When I purchased the car 7 years ago the underside of the trunk lid and hood were painted to match the body. So I kept it that way. I do not know if it is original or not. It is the original color.
