Those seats don't even look like they have been sat in!
Man...I'm sorry I'm so late to this party, but that thing is beautiful! Congrats on a job really, really, really well done. Wish it was mine!

No offense to you Rut, but older cars don't tend to fare well on TG/FG. Maybe if James May did a review of it. He did do a decent job when he got his hands on the gulling and california.
Saw the beast in person at last weekend's C&C. It looked amazing, even when it had to be towed due to a faulty alternator belt .

Spiced up the interior a bit referencing my muse, the 500SEC 32v AMG Wide Body featured in the July 1984 German Magazine Publication, "Auto Motor und Sport," Dan Miller Auto Tops and Interiors reproduced this Gembella styling, designed for AMG, door card insert.
Coupled with the AMG styled door wood trim by Madera Concepts, the inserts offer a unique touch to the coupe's cabin.
Recently shot a short little video test of the 500SEC Wide body and did a quick edit of the footage. Loaded up on the AMG Classic Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Merce...07798765975892
If anyone is in the area during Peebles Beach Auto Week, you should really make it a point to visit Legends of the Autobahn at Rancho Canada Golf Club in Carmel Valley, CA August 17th.
This is a four marque annual event which includes BMW, Porsche, Mercedes and for the first time Audi.
More info here:
Hope to see you there!
b) Common, man, you should have someone take some proper pics of the car. Such a tease to watch some smartphone pics of such a gorgeous thing.
c) You should hint about your car to Mercedes in Germany. I'm sure they'd be interested in featuring your car in their AMG Facebook page or something.
