Great job vcash, the Benz looks sweet and I love the colour. I am a big fan of that steering wheel. Waiting for more pictures

Thanks! Couldn't have done it without your support. Maxxis imported a set of tires in this size but they ran out of stock fairly quickly in Delhi. Are importing tires directly difficult? Radio will probably be my last priority and I will get in touch with you for that - I presume that we are talking Becker, here?

Thanks GTO! She is perfect for those weekend drives to the course. The driver's side head lamp is fine (Maybe the photograph distorts it bit) but the right side has faded - Only option is to replace it and the hunt is on. Hopefully, will be able to snag one from Ebay Germany soon.

Thanks Shankar. I wanted to get her as back to her original roots as I could!

Thanks Dippy. The steering wheel took a lot of bleach to clean and get back into shape. I wish I had not been lazy and taken the seat covers off to show of the MB-Tex in all her glory. It is the interiors of this car that really does it for me.

More pictures will only come after a few months since I am back in Bombay now and will only head to Jamshedpur in the new year.
