Headlamps look killer man!
I'm eager to look at the finished product.
BTW, You guys are planning to use projectors on both head lights and fog lamps?

Just a suggestion : Use projectors with angel eyes on both headlights and fog lamps, They give you great look.

well aayan buddy i am in a pickle. i came across the 500 SEL while hunting for the v8s and now when i have got her, i dont have the guts to tear down this beauty. so while the conti being done you might also see a new thread on redoing up the W126.

well for now, the conti is our priority, lets see how things go. looking for some serious work tomorrow on it, will even try and update pics.
