I would very much like my next car to be another Mercedes but I really do not want the experience souring with cancer of the coachwork. Were the post 2002 cars better or...

    Unintentional W210 bodywork 'resto'

    Thought I might as well create this as a separate thread since it seems to be turning into a project despite my original intentions... I picked up this 1997 V6 e320 from cozy's dad initially just because I didn't want to see it broken for spares before someone had checked if it was worth...

    Clean bodywork

    Hi guys, some may think this is a silly pos, but, I was wondering why my C320 estate 2003 has such a great body for its age? I tracked down the only other owners it's had, and at no time has the vehicle had any paintwork fine on it. She gas done 114,000 miles on an 03 plate, but still she has an...

    Just to thank the Forum for pointing me in the direction of Andy at Tony Fowkes to get my ML sorted after its run-in with a wheelie bin. Can't believe how good it looks and he relacquered the two black pillars at the back that had flaked off over the 12 years the car's been on the road. Sent...

    Custom bodywork

    Peeps. The C63 Stage 3 Weistec is coming along nicely at MSL. My next issue is that I want to get 315 rears and 255 fronts to assist with the application of the additional grunt. I don't want to fit a BS kit, I would prefer a custom build. I want to widen the arches to accommodate the larger...
