Hi Al, the biggest agonizing issue now in this journey is whether to leave it as it is in current external factory body format
or kit it out - tough call as i can't make up my mind yet!!

You're under her spell.... and understandably so. I think God took more than one rib from Adam - one to make Eve - bestowing us men with the beauty of the female form - and another to inspire the design of the SEC - aesthetically a close second to even the most seductive woman.

The fact that you're conflicted is just an acknowledgement of how perfect the lines of your unmolested SEC are - and, more to the point, how much YOU appreciate and enjoy that beauty. You can always go widebody in the future, but once you make her wide, taking her back to native isn't as easy. Heck, leaving her untouched just means that if someday in the future you can't resist going wide, you'll just have to get another one to widebody!


She's beautiful Kim.


Enjoy yourself, Marco.

Hi Marco - i have my Euro 040 black 88 560SEC stripped down in the shed for WB project and that is definitely going to happen.

For the white coupe i do have a full AMG Gen2 original bodykit for non WB version which is what i was having a hard time making up my mind on - haha
Yes the coupe as it is now the lines flow so nice on the factory fit.
The Gen2 kits tend to bulk up the look a bit
