My Mambang Merah's Makeover
After months of sourcing for parts and screws (the mechanical kind) the time has come for the much awaited restoration and makeover of my beloved 380SLC.

The process will take anywhere between 3-6 months and will be handled by the experts at Auto Dream Custom Kits. These guys have about 20 years of experience and their cars have won several classic car competitions.

Tyra Benz will be leaving PD next weekend. I shall miss her.

Well bro Mable, here goes:
- Complete electrical rewiring
- Brake system
- Engine & Transmission
- Body - Paint, chrome, weather stripping, lights
- Handling package
- Interior - Leather, carpets, wood trim, dashboard, replace missing arm rest, sound system
- Tinting

Haven't decided if I should detail the engine or leave it stock standard. Any advice?

Have I missed anything?

Lupa pulak G...

Just detail the engine as per the original. No chrome bits etc...Mostly black paint on the cam/rocker covers and the aircleaner housing IIRC.

Mexican Hats I presume ? Try to source Bibendum XWXs from EU.....that'll make the old girl feel as per The Stylistics' hit tune.......

Bloody excited is putting it mildly, RG.
Will post the pics as I get them. The guys will actually send me weekly updates with pics.

Tis a strange feeling, this. A wee bit like sending the wifey off to get silicone boobies installed!
