:bowdown:I ran the VIN WDB10704212008306 on the Russian Website and it comes back with interior color code 134 but doesn't list a color name. Any help appreciated.

1981 280SL:bowdown:

Could be Bamboo, too. It's raining out and I don't want to go out to look at mine.

I think you are right, except it feels like leather. I plan to cut a swatch out and take it to Lowes so they can do the color match. Then I will buy a premium latex paint to do the interior touch up. Of course I will use my power sprayer to do it.:big laugh::big laugh:

And your interior is MB-Tex, not leather. Some would say that's a good thing - it holds up extremely well, whereas a leather interior would be in very sad shape at this late date.

Your sunvisors look like shit.

Just thought I'd point that out in case you hadn't noticed. :)

At least he can get new replacements in the right color from World Upholstery. Those of us with less common interior colors are not so fortunate.

And while he's there he can buy some spray dye for that dash cap so it's the right color. So many 107 cars out there with black tops on their dashboards; not right.

Hey, give me a break, I have only had it a week. :surrender:

And the original dash under the cap is black. I don't like it either. And of course it is MB-Tex.:beerchugr:

Hmmm. My shit is much darker brown that that. If that's what yours looks like, you might want to see your doctor. Or change your diet. Or both.

Your shit issues are probably due to the habaneros you've been scarfing down. :D

Mine resembles the Palomino since the wife put me on the fiber supplements, but I will, in the interest of good taste, refrain from posting pics. :eek:

I used to think so but every one I've seen with a black top was just an unpainted dash topper. As far as I can tell, no SL was produced with a two-tone dashboard.
I don't think you are correct. Not all those black tops are toppers; there are just too many of them.
My 560 has a black top over creme beige and it is original.
Anyone else here?

Add carrots to your diet and you will end up with a perfect Bamboo color.

Is it truly original or is there one of those blow molded dash tops on it? I've installed a few and when carefully installed they are very hard to tell from the factory dash.

I'd be OK with being proven wrong - and it'd be educational to discover two-tone dashes in 107 cars.:)

Quite a lot of 107's came standard with a 2 tone dash.
I'm not sure what year they started in, but I know a lot left the factory like that.

Photo is scan from 1980 280/380SLC Factory Catalogue.

That car has the small steering wheel center and the climate control panel from a 1977 or older model.

Does anyone know when M/B put two-tone dashes in these cars?

My '81 280SL has the same steering wheel. I pulled the dash cap off and the dash is black with standard cracks in several places. Also has same control panel. Euro or model difference?
