WHOA!
That's prettier than Sandra Bullock -sorry Sandy - but I've never got the camber thing. Wouldn't that be hell on steering/suspension?

Let me put this out there:

If a guy had a black car, and was theoretically intriqued with the grille seen above, and this theoreretical guy had already shaved his badging off, I might add (although I made a bit of a mess of my theoretical trunk lid!) Would you steel wool the grille in prep for paint?
Or, in a nutshell, how would you prep a grille for paint (I'd want to seam fill to the hood, too).
Thanks, gang.

Its the same than here - most of you want the euro touch on their W126. In the 80ies it was fashion to have US-parts on the car, especially the lights. Mostly the frame of the Gen I lights were body colored.

I know that you don´t like the fuzzy light from them. In Germany you can get the inserts with H4 connectors, so it isn´t that bad. And if you did some light tuning, its really good.

The difference between euro and us tails are the corners. Euro corners are orange all around, we don´t have the sidemarkers. Its forbidden, to use them here, but that makes them more interesting ;-)

Give it to a chrome guy and let them dechrome it. They use the acid bathes to take it of.

One of my favourites. And yeah its funny about the lights and things. Grass is greener, etc. I saw a US spec SEL here on UK ebay get a very good price.
