    Re: headlight chrome rim- which is OEM?

    Gerry,

    Beautiful rims. That’s what my 1958 had on it originally. Wish I still had them but chrome was shot so I put new ones on them years ago, unfortunately without any markings.

    Many, many thanks for your detailed response. Great outline which I will print and save with the article in the Enthusiast you mentioned for future reference.
  5. Re: Headlight Question - to LED the original euro frames?

    Bill,

    Your Euro lights look beautiful. Would appreciate if you provide details on what was required for the conversion and what Euro lights (manufacture) you used. I still have the “dated” sealed...

    Re: Is this car's owner a club member?

    Gerry,

    That’s great that the organizers selected the SL for their cover photo. The dash on our SL’s are so beautiful. Not sure what the accessory under is under the glovebox. I did notice that the...

    Ramon,

    This is a set of NOS that are waiting patiently for me to install on my 1958. Notice the color/brilliance of the metal.
