Re: pure grace n beauty...
OK guys.. it has been a while since i started this thread..

a bit of an update.

Since I purchased the car, there have been ups and downs with it. Good thing is still keeping its head up on the air and still one of my favourite piece of toy. I have been driving this baby more than my E90 Beemers.

And yes! indeed it is a mafia- gangster looking car. The amount of stares/ glare i get while parking in front of the mamak store is not something you get from driving a souped up proton.

while the down side is, is really heavy on petrol consumption, driving around town with stop start... is burning a hole in my wallet, however, there are always my E90 and Waja to do up the balance..

Problems:
I am just gonna list all my expenses paid on the car thus far.

1. Konked BATTERY. Replaced with DIN88 Battery- RMM350

2. Weird rubbing sound when turning stationary. Replaced steeirng box and misc adjustment. Replaced new Brake pads and sensors.- Total RM 1050

3. Broken rubber on passenger front door latch. Replaced rubber- RM 40

4. Black anti shatters tint, JPJ compliant with 15 years warranty- RM600

5. Refurbishing wood interior and changing to Maple's Bird Eye. Repainting all door cards and console. re-wrap leather on steering- RM1700. To be collected after 3 weeks!

6. Used original Leather gear shifter from a W126 560SEC. side repeaters in amber. Bought from Ebay- GBP 13.77- RM 80 including postage! hehehe


so, total spending 2120. another 1700 to go in 3 weeks

RM3800 plus plus

Hi Ck,

Looking at your lists, you're not doing too bad as the whole cost is less than RM 5K. This is way below the RM 5 to 10K that we heard about restoring a mercs to it's original glory.

Really like your car...it's just brilliant...not surprise it's a head turner...

I must say it's worth every effort and penny!

Well done ck!

Just came back from Carbi Deco. The door panels were stripped down and painted. Wood panels has gone for refurbishment. Car in their factory,

Overall, the workmanship is ok. it doesnt feel sticky like some people described it, very natural and like Brand new!!!
overall happy.

need to wait for the wood panels to be done now

also need to check the fitting.

atlast! the car is out from the workshop.

here is the update, newly painted doorcards/ handle/ console box.
Refurbishing of wood and changing to Maple's Bird eye veneer.
Rewrap new leather on steering.

overall the quality and finishing is pretty good. The new maple wood does change the whole presence of the car. now just waiting for my leather shifter from an 560SEC sourced from ebay to compliment it.

the door cards feel smooth after the painting, but the pull handle due to age, there are some rough edges but acceptable afterall.

new leather on steering does not feel as nice as previous one,maybe is still new, not seasoned yet. am still contemplating of getting a half wood/ leather steering from Hakitrade.

downside
after 3 weeks in the workshop, I made a detailed check up on the car during collection. Making sure all electrics are working and fitments are fine

flaws
1. Stereo not working now. they said the wiring is chaotic behind the console, they just replug it and now not quite functioning, the problem is the stereo switched on momentarilly and automatically died off.. can eject and insert CD but not functioning. JVC aftermarket made

Dont know whether the player is fauty or not. Am thinking of changing a new one since the silver player doesnt match with the neer veneer.Will have it check.

2. Electric seats controller switch button for headrest missing on driver side. they lost it but replaced both, left and right ( i lost the left side during tinting) FOC from a w202 C class. some minor mods needed for fitting. Overall OK

3. small scratch on rear bumper, a 5 cent coin size dent noted. patched and respray bumper by their workshop, FOC. I took the opportunity to spray all my 4 doors handle (external) at a price of 100 as mine is faded.

overall, I am 90% satisfied

will post some pictures once the interior is all done up.
