Looks very nice. But I think you posted the 2nd and 3rd photos from the end backwards. The steering wheel is in the wrong side!!! :-)

Thanks all

Jbanks - did that before posting up.

Need to spend a bit more time on it at some stage and get the machine polisher on it, but that can wait until it's in the garage all tucked away over winter

Thanks EddieJH.

It's been somebody elses weekend car and is in very good condition. A couple of minor scuffs/scratches here and there, but i will get them all sorted at some stage. Probably over the winter whilst it's tucked away in the garage.

It's 37,000 miles with full MB service history etc.
