Its been a long journey..
It all started with me finding this beat up 1972 280sel 4.5.
I got it running and learning as I worked on it. Drove it daily for 8 months over 1200 miles a month... fell in love w the car.
So I decide to do a "simple" restoration, get the old girl looking better .... well we all know how that goes.
I decide to make some major body improvements:
-Custom front vallance, always tought w108s didn't look finished under the bumper
-Custom front split bumpers
-Euro headlight swap
-Remodeled rear end, SL inspired
-Rear split bumpers
-Custom trunk latch button
-Shaved trunk lid
-Passanger side mirror
- AND THE BIG ONE....NO BODY LINES! Shaved mid side trim body lines
- Custom w202 seats front and rear
- W202 Center console
- speaker kick panels
- 8" subwoofer on rear deck w enclosure
- All door panels dyed ferrari caramel
- new carpet
Every single rubber part new.
Complete MAJOR tune up

Custom air suspension
18" HRE Forged 3 piece wheels 18x8.5 front 18x10.5 rear
