From your picture I'd say you have the early, 99-03 amg package, it was called the sport version of the slk.

BTW could you post more info about your car next to your avatar like miles on the car & year.

Jo,.. Viponds is in Australia,.. he sells and ships you the can of paint ,.. you then apply it yourself. His shipping is fast and the amount you will receive is enough to touch up or paint your interior for a lifetime... heck, may even want to paint your tiolet the same colour if it suits you.

It's up to yuo,..

Cheers!

I used the Volico spray paint, I removed and stripped the lower console, glovebox and repainted those parts they still look great and no chipping.
I touched up the upper console and dash & it still chips and peels.

My 2c, its better to strip and repaint than just touch up. a lot of work but worth it.

J, Thanks for putting your car info up.

i would also suggest some form of water based stripper from your local hardware store. if you sand the console you will smooth out the grain pattern and it will differ from the rest of the car

Jo

All the Viponds paints were matched to panels sent over from USA by members (except my own colour - leather sand/sienna beige 225)

I doubt you will find any matched paint in the US - Viponds (paintable) and Volico (spray) are the go.

Scarlet (commonly referred to as salsa red) is 227 and is the lighter of the 2 colours - 'crimson' is a deeper red

You need to put your VIN no. into the previously referred to Russian site to get your colour accurately
