1967 Mercedes 250sl Pagoda


Just a few pics to be getting on with on the new "Pagoda resto page", The full restoration of this wonderful 60s sl  has seen many late nights and thousands of hours of painstaking work since 2007 -  more photos (including before pics) to be added along the way.

Nearly there now after a summer of concentrated effort to finish the car. hardtop restoration complete ,with new top tint glass, head liner, rubbers, chrome, these tops are a task in themselves (almost 2 weeks) with twice as many parts as the next generation 107 tops each piece has to be carefully reassembled in the correct puzzle like order to very fine tolerance, including 'bending' the rear quarter glass into the channels !  dash instruments re installed with almost unused period range topping Becker Mexico  fm auto reverse radio ,imported from New York - removed from Maserati in 1970 ! 

 

Very nearly there , 8 years later !
