Thanks Carl, small world isn’t it. Call you Wednesday to tee up a time. I collect the car AM Tuesday, then have a few days of family affairs.

Cheers,

Might I say along with many others that this has some invaluable insight into our W126's. Your attention to detail is outstanding.

It has been suggested that this build shows your OCD. While this may be true having only recently found this thread I found meself obsessed with reading every post!

Well done and I look forward to further progress.

Good luck.

No problem Gilles, I know what it's like. I saw David last Saturday and he was very pleased the car has come your way. Next time, CJ.

Just joining the chorus of the bleeding obvious here but that's some outstanding workmanship, attention to detail and sheer determination... it must feel fantastic driving your re-creations down the road, just knowing the only reason they're so beautiful is down to your own hard work and knowhow.

Are you a Melbournian Carl? I'd dearly love to see them in person!

I'm in Melbourne, Northern suburbs.

You're welcome to come and have a look one day, I won't be into it again until mid December however.

I'm in no huge hurry, whenever you're headed there next, give me a heads up so I can come oogle in envy.
Out of interest, what colour did you use on the bumpers/Saccos of your thistle green one?
