attention to orders: 500E/E500 white cluster fanatics

(well, this isn't a requirment... just a high-octane idea)


For all of you 500E/E500 fanatics out there, I have some good news:

I hope to have time to drum-scan the orthogonal (photo) films I took of my OEM cluster (pre-white-face-conversion) and post them to my website, ASAP, in the next 2 to 3 weeks:

http://www.nemonis.net

*** PLEASE BE ADVISED: the files will be QUITE LARGE, so I would advise downloading them only from a broadband-speed Internet connection * * *

I will not charge anyone for this; I only should advise that, should you wish to use the aforesaid files to produce your own (professional) silkscreens, you *MUST* confirm that all scale/registration issues are addressed/resolved. Feel free to pass this on to any ///benzsport.com, etc., friends. No problem.

Obviously, I cannot assume any liability for speedometer calibration issues, et cetera; I'm merely trying to help my fellow speed-freaks (vehicularly speaking, of course) to "get their fix."

Once you have obtained the aforesaid images files, you should be able to convert them into litho negatives/whatever format your local speedometer/professional print-shop requires to (re-)screen your (powder-coated, white) OEM gagues to your (collective) heart's content.

Stay tuned,

thanks

Thank you, my friends!

I'm especially interested in seeing/being the (bolt-in) passenger in that 6L (ACTACK) RENNTech beast!

I'd love to see some pictures of the shaved handles, etc., Albert.

What's your URL?

Take it easy / stay tuned...

i *LOVE* the shaved handles - and the monochromatic treatment (obviously)!

i'm interested in knowing how you wired your doors (low-rider/bajito style)... aha... you just posted a picture: EXCELLENT!

; )

nice job!

straight-up nutz

that is *RUDE!* (in a good way, of course)

did you weld up the door handle holes, then prep/paint the doors - or did you use some super-polymer-3M-type-body-filler?

inquiring minds want to know.

you are pushing this hobby to the eXtreme: GO FOR BROKE!!!

; )

for the door handels...I made a exact template out of extra sheet metal...i welded the edges slowly so i don't cause the outer metal to get waves...I also closed my antenna hole...my rear quarter panel..where the window and quarter-panel meet is welded togeter like the new cars ...I dont know if you noticed my mirrors....Its been updated to the 2001 blinking mirrors (this took a while, but well worth the nights i didn't sleep because of welding at 1am w/o a mask oops...) but I love moding......just dont have money

wide-eyed vapor-ware eXtremist

tell me about it... (especially the girlfriend; my advice: marry a doctor).

i've been interested in the blinking-light mirror mods, for some time; would you please post some close-up pics of the driver and passenger-side mirrors?

i was thinking of eliminating my passenger-side mirror (a la Hammer); however, i'm curious to know if the blinking-light mod
housing on the passenger side is shorter (like OEM one) than the driver-side one...

thanks for your time,

on the 01' mbz both mirrors are the same size.....I also was planing on taking out the passenger mirror like the 87' AMG HAMMER, but then I decide to do this instead (its more unique to me) here is a link: if you have any questions feel free

500E/E500 cluster gague-face negatives are UP

GOOD NEWS!

I have just posted the 500E/E500 cluster gauge-face negatives to my website; please feel free to download and use them (at your own risk) - free of charge; I HIGHLY recommend making litho-films at a service bureau (for making silk-screens to ink your white powder-coat gauge faces), then giving them to a competent speedometer professional, such as Hartmut C. Mees, at:

Palo Alto Speedometer
718 Emerson Street (cross st = Lafayette)
Palo Alto, CA 94301
voice: (650) 323-0243
fax: (650) 323-4632

Enjoy,
