  1. Under the heading of quality: yes, it’s really a joy and pleasure how Mercedes in this period built their cars. They also protected them against corrosion much better from the late seventies on.
    Before that the sophisticated measures for crash-safety have yielded in lots of hollow spaces that weren’t reasonably sealed.
    When you repainted it in a different colour: how have you dealt with the wheel arches and underground, etc.?

  2. Everything depends on how the client wants to go far and how much he wants to spend
    In this specific example ,when sill and front fender was off ,we remove front and back suspension and car was blasted under , inner arches ,and basically whole floor bring to bare metal ..Then epoxy primed ,semseled and stone-chip protected ..
