My wife adored the color and chocolate interior of the SEL in florida, but she likes coupes more than the sedans. You mentioned, your SEC was colored similarly...before you say it I have done a forum search, and I looked through forty-two gallery pages from that sticky on top. I'm sure that other than I, there are new members who would like to see your car. :bowdown:

There was, by the way many, beautiful cars in the aforementioned sticky. If any new members have not looked, It's great to see how some of our cars started out, and how they have progressed to look like they do now. It must be acknowledged, the dedication we have to these cars, and with some sadness to the few who have suffered accidents. JFlyer, Mr_Clifton, Picklesam :surrender: :surrender:

But on the whole, definitely worth the time it took to look through them all! (3 hours) So how about it Horst? Is there a link I some how missed, or another gallery to look through.
I figured the best way to keep my wife from harping on the money I spend on my MB, is to buy her one too! But only after we finish the house!! LOL

It is my understanding that teutone is now travelling and in Germany and Dubai just now, so if you don't hear from him right away, it is because he hasn't had the opportunity to check in.


I have seen his car is Los Angeles however, last year. I may or may not have pic's of it from then, in August 2008, I believe it was.

I hope I am not overstepping a line here, but a very small sample of Horst's (Tuetone) beautiful SEC. I hope he does not mind. It is a beautiful example envied by all of us that have seen it.

Again, hope I am not stepping out of line by posting pics...mods feel free to delete this post if you think Tuetone would not want this post.

I'm having trouble making out that last photo due to the glare from the shiny perfection of it...

Greg, Horst would not mind at all...
I know he has some mixed emotion about the completion of this very rare complete mechanical restoration. Such extreme dedication was put into this car as it well shows.

For those who may not have been around when Horst and Jerry (and others) took the time, effort and money to truely rip apart, replace, then put back together just about every mechanical bit on this beautiful SEC, it would be rewarding to you to spend several hours reading the thread that Jim (Cascade) has posted above.

Simply remarkable reading as well as great pictures and part numbers that are surely going to help you sooner or later during your w126 tenure.

Cheers,
Greg

My wife loves that color, and the chocolate interior. Horst's SEC is beautiful. I haven't been able to look through all 53 pages of his restoration, but will after the kids get in the bed later. OOOOOHHHHHH........the anticipation.

On a side note, I put original silver 15 hole rims on "the Lady" today. Hoping to get the euros on sometime this week, and also am painting my grill. Will post pics soon.
