Searching for interior parts

Any suggestions on where to buy interior parts for a 91 500sl? I'm looking to do some restoration. carpet, door panels, seat covers, console pad. etc.
Thanks in advance.

Check out our For Sale sticky thread, you might find something there.
Breakers/wreckers yards are again a valuable source for used parts.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.

I'm going to tell you bad news. Mercedes has discontinued all Blue/red/brown/the caramel color interior parts a handful of years ago...

Used interior parts in those colors are super rare to find too...

It might be best to change over to a black interior or grey depending on what your exterior color is...

Some parts may be painted with professional SEM brand paint.. Color changed with the SEM products

https://www.benzworld.org/forums/r-c...sunvisors.html

https://www.semproducts.com/product/vinyl-coattm/coattm

https://www.semproducts.com/products...pholstery-trim

https://www.autobodytoolmart.com/sea...rds=sem&page=3

https://www.yourautotrim.com/semdye.html

Black interior cars are common at the junk yards even I can get you that from a black car.

Seats, this is the 96 to 2002 look seat covers, but for $300 that is a smokin price.

https://www.lseat.com/products/1996-...ers-front.html

These guys make them too:

Then my buddy Craig can make you some, but his will not be so cheap, but then they are custom too...

You are welcome.

You will have to get it from a junk car too. You might just cover over the foam like I did with the seat cover...

Their used to be a website you can download the parts list to the R129 showing you EVERY part to the car, but site is no good anymore. I have the actual file, but it is too large to post here. I will break the file in 4ths, so I can upload it here for all too use.. Here is old non working link...

When I need parts...
I'll type in....
Miami.Craigslist.org
For sale sale section and type in Mercedes SL500 and hit enter.
Or...losangeles.craigslist.org or Chicago.
Or whatever city.
Rancho Cordova area....Sacramento....many used parts' businesses...
MAVA and NHSL550 like this.

We are here on earth to do good unto others.
What the others are here for, I have no idea.
