Nothing but admiration for all your skill and work you've done and the attention to detail, you've changed an average to nice looking SL into a very desirable motor car, but please oh please change the front grill! IMHO it 's far too 'Barry from Halfords' and lets down the whole appeal of the vehicle .
(just my opinion and totally understand do what you want to your car etc - some people would hate the mods I've done to mine!) That aside, please keep the mods/posts coming, it's great to see and we all luv 'em!
I do agree with Matt and go with a OEM front grill. I also agree with Matt on the amazing work you have done especially with only a jack and a couple of axle stands
I have very much enjoyed your posts, it's what makes this Forum very special
Thanks for the kind words, opinions noted on the grill. I knew it was a bit marmite but i had to do something as the original was literally just sat there with nothing bolting it down. There aren't many options for grills and personally I'm not a fan of the original, I think it dates the car. My search hasn't ended yet though
