Here is my boat! I've had her a couple of years now and it has been a hell of an at home garage build. Here's a couple of the latest pics. I'll post more along the way, also, feel free to ask an questions!

Is that the original paint? I really like the color.

Are those AMG wheels?

I see you have Euro lights on it. Why did you keep the yellow corners? I'd put in clear corners and put in yellow bulbs.

It's lowered a bit more than my personal preference, but I admire the work you've put into it.

These pillarless coupes are one of favorite Mercedes of all time.

Euro Benzes have amber corners in most EU countries, its actually darker than the usa amber. Not sure why everyone thinks euro = clear.

Car looks sick, I had similar aspirations for my W124, then got too deep into the vintage stuff. Any other changes planned or just enjoy it now?

I assume its on air? Any info on your setup?

Is it Canyon Brown?

Thanks for the love guys!

The car is Impala Brown on Chinchilla cladding. I'm running OZ AMG Aero wheels in 17x8.5/10 et -4/24 with full AMG Gen 1 kit. The car is on one off air suspension. Next set of changes will be a fuel injected Ford 302 engine swap and I'm on the lookout for some Recaro Classic seats.

You lost us at Ford V8 swap.

Turbo the M104, they'll hold power like a 2J, look in the Performance Section.

I would love to explore more power options with the M104. I am just experiencing some weird issues currently with it.
