2001 SLK230 Sport rust fixed

On this model, the seal between the rocker panels and the fenders don't drain water well enough and corrosion set in about year 12. I finally took care of it. MB west Chester, OH did the work and did a great job. They replaced the two font fenders (my choice over fixing the old ones), they stripped it down and found another couple of areas with rust. There was also some on the door sils. They painted almost all of the cars and it matches perfectly.

This was my daily driver until I retired in 2010, and has about 108k miles on it. It looks like new. The weather is crap here so I couldn't get it out for a decent picture.
