    Cool Upholstery Tech Workshop in Palm Springs

    We received our newest copy of the 190SL Enthusiast today. As before, a beautiful presentation and well appreciated. There is a small block advertisement: " Upholstery Tech Session Coming this Spring." Dates and details to follow. Do we now what these dates are? I want to commit to attending but we have plans for one week in March so I hope there is no conflict. Palm Springs is very nice in the spring, not too hot at all.

    Hi Jack,
    Tony Hazell, (owner of Heritage Upholstery) is planning to have two 190 SLs in his shop for demo purposes.
    My understanding is these cars are currently in the final stages of restoration - their completion date will determine availability to Tony’s shop, so timing at this point is not certain.
    We’ll update this thread as soon as a date has been determined.
    Note: This is not a 190 SL Group exclusive/sponsored event - open to MBCA members as well.
    That’s all I have at the moment.

    Bill

    Thank you, Bill. We will look forward to this event. Hopefully, we will have advance notice to schedule transit and over night.

    March 24-26 is the Antique Car Club of America's 2017 Western Meet in Palm Springs, so there will be several hundred cars in town that weekend. Don't know if that is a plus or minus for our planners.

    Bill,

    Are there any pictures from this event. I would like to compare to my car that is currently in the upholstery shop.

    Thank you
