Collection of interesting w126s/Custom Jobs

I just stumbled across this link that has a lot of photos of various custom Mercedes and a few others. Normally i'm not a fan, but some of these are pretty good or at least interesting to look at.

Here are a few samples.

There seems to be a strange desire to put Benz grilles and lights on Rovers.

What kind of window motor/regulator are needed in this door!

WHOA.



When you need separate 20A fuses for each window motor you know it means business!

Yeah overall I like the work that Carat Duchatelet did...although I think this has to be the best SEC re-trim I've ever seen

Meh, I don't like those redneck diesel camper conversions






I don't like those "flexible fliers" either:

I guess I like the 126 wagon conversion and the wide body SECs best. Some of the non automotive scenery was first class as well.

Very nice! It brought the interior to 2009 CL levels.
