Folks,

Just thought I would say hi. Purchased a 92 Mercedes 500E last month. My "velvet hammer" was originally a german car, exported to Japan in 2000, then imported to Canada November 2012, with 97,000 km's. Overall very good shape. Has had the facelift converision done (not sure if in germany or japan). Previous owners have plasti-dip (grille,etc) and amg stickered it up, which I am in the process of slowly correcting/removing.

Attached are some pics. I look forward to hopefully make a contribution here going forward, and apologize in advance for any forth coming stupid questions.

Regards.

Nice pet, i love silver 036....
But.... make it either complete Mopf2 ( restyle)- paint Bumpers all in silver, or get back to original look, but it is much more work...

Uploaded some pics into an album with what I managed to get done so far.

- removed 'plasti-dip' from front grill, and door handles, rear emblem and nameplate...returing it back to chrome
- removed "AMG" badges from front, rear, and inside.
- removed "AMG" hood emblem, and replaced with 3 point star.
- removed carbon fibre vinyl from front bumber, B pillars, bottom of C pillar
- installed new side mirrors
- installed new Michelin PS A/S tires (245/40R18 front, 275/35R18 rear...replacing 235/40R18's all around)
- installed aftermarket rear lip spoiler - wanted to see how it would look.

In a front car looks much better, like it supposed to look like.

Did you check headlamp panels ? As I pointed before they are misaligned and missing the seal.
