I love all the wood trim in your car, shifter knob, window handles, steering wheel and even hood pull! Cool!!
The hood pull is not in wood, its the handbrake relise pull there.[;)][:)]

Hey Onkel, how did you manage to find that 6-switch wood panel on your center console? The most I've seen is 5! Also, what switches are on that wooden panel?

As always, great pics, great car, what else can I say?

Thanks Karugs!
Well the wooden panel, originally it just have four swithces. i have put two swithces there and done the holes in the wood panel myself for the swithes.

One "extra" switch is when i got my winterextralights at the front of the car i can turn them on/off with that switch!

The other "extra" switch is for the headlights AND the foglights to drive with all the four of them at the same time on/off.
Originally that can´t be done on a Sweden w123!
I have made that electricalthing so i can have that! [:D]

Are you a craftsman? It seems everything you do, you do it with great care to craftsmanship. Just look at your BBS rims! You refurbished them yourself, right?

Amazing...[;)]

A craftsman is one who can do all sorts of work that needs a good eye for detail and good hands that create quality work. A hobbyist is close to being one! [:)]
