Mercedes 220SE Restoration

 The Bonnet has been stripped to the metal and primed several times and is at last getting smooth enough . KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The Roof however is a different matter. It has sever damage all over it some of which i hammered out and metal finished but some is too badly damaged to completely remove so it has been leaded . The darker spots are Low spots and the lighter spots are high spots revealed in the first primer and guide coats. It’s as if someone had gone over the roof with a ball pien hammer KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The boot Lid is similar but not as bad as high spots made by things being carried in the have hit the skin . In the meantime other panels are also getting the primer ,sand,Primer,Sand,Primer routine too..

Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.3 restoration Project

IMG_0058 IMG_0059 IMG_0060

This is RHD 6,3 #2206 . The engine is incomplete and the drivers side sill/rocker  is rotten but the rest of the car is surprisingly sound but in need of a full restoration .RHD 6.3’s are too rare to part out and i would rather restore this car anyway….. or build a historic racer for weekend fun.
