Mercedes cluster gauge needle paint kit

See Post #5 for BEFORE and AFTER pic of Roy's 240D cluster.


Okay, guys. I recently repainted the cluster gauge needles on both my 87 Champagne and my 1984 300D Light Ivory with (Henna) Red interior. I have some paint left over , so I thought I'd offer it up to the entire community. See Post #5 for BEFORE and AFTER pic of Roy's 240D cluster.

Here's what you receive:
At least 1ml of paint.
One hobby type small paint brush; color varies <--- this is the exact type of brush I used.
Enough paint to do more than one w123 or w126 stock clusters.
Shipping included inside continential US.
Key is NOT included.

Willing to barter or the cost is $3 if you pay by cash or check; $3.50 if you pay by PayPal due to transaction fees. Shoot me a PM for payment details. I've done the USPS research and can send these in a mailer via regular mail.

I recieved daw`s paint kit in the mail. comes in a padded envelope, and the vile of paint and brush are in a Zip-Loc bag incase the Orangatangs processing the maile along the way get a little too agressive.

The package looked like daw walked next door and placed it in my mail box. envelope was not bent, wrinkled, tweeked or even dirty, and the stamp was not cancelled.

Looks like enough paint to do several Instrument clusters.

Thank you daw-two.

Charlie

Here you go..... Here's a cluster that I pulled yesterday from a 1980 240D. I called Roy when I saw it to see if he needed one. I figured before I send it to him, I could paint the needles for him. So....here are the pics.

Can you can see the difference? The pic that I have 2 painted needles and 1 unpainted needle tells the story. Guys, it's just $3.
