Nice job! You should bring it over to Woodward Dream Cruise. It would be nice to see another benz out there ;-)

Looks great ......

- I would ditch the fender stickers, but them in the window if you must have them.

- Add some spacers for a better stance

- Let see a lot of interior shots also

- What shocks are you using ?

- Get some 14" alloy wheels if you don't have them, you will be amazed.

Thx for sharing, I'm enjoying mine !!!
