    My SL see's daylight

    After 3+ years my SL saw daylight and moved under it's own power.

    This is a picture from over 2 years ago. This was about a year into the project.

    Still waiting on one piece of the front bumper from the chrome shop. After a short (no plate) run-I live on a private road, I put together my still to do list. It seems like for every item that I do I have to add 2 more! Who would have thought that the inside rear view mirror would rattle at moderate speed!

    Congratulations!
    There is nothing like that first ride after a long restoration. Unbelievably, the sorting out process will take about two years as new issues come to light. It was a year later before I discovered that my blue indicator light came on with the low beam instead of the high.
    Enjoy,

    Looks great ? I like the interior color with the blue. It's only almost May so where's the snow and ice?

    Thank you all for your responses.

    Greg, I do understand the sorting out process, hopefully less than 2 years!

    Walt, I liked the colors on Rolf's SL which is how I came to my decision. I am pleased with the result.

    Morgan, the leather is 1068, Tan

    John, I will try to post additional pix if the weather will ever cooperate.
