Hi all, the MB Concourse de Elegance is less than 6 weeks away and after 8 months of work I am hoping my W116 is ready. I know there are many "Godfathers" here on the forum who can spot a defect from a mile away so I thought I would post photos and ask for your comments. I will also detail the work I have completed. Cheers  :D

Last ones, and let me know if you need to see a close up of anything.

I have no concourse experience or knowledge at all, but I just needed to leave a huge compliment here - your car looks absolutely gorgeous! I can only imagine the work that went into this. Big props to you - a job very well done!

P.S.: Not sure how much they look at original equipment, but maybe the purple top battery is an issue? I have no idea though, but there should be people here that will definitely be able to let you know!

I am far from being a concourse judge, but wow that is a spotless car!!! Big props for keeping it that way.
