Smile New Pictures

As some of you knew, the Pasadena MB Meet was on this weekend.

I got there pretty late but still managed to have my buddy Ling snap some photos of my ride. Special thanks to him for the fabulous pictures.

Here they are...










That's all. These pictures will do good for awhile until I have some new mods. LOL

Looks like you're ready to install a hood from a '94-'95!

is a German Tank
leave the hood as is I think, it's more agressive than the newer 94-95 hoods IMO.

The car looks freaking slick, good job on it.

I like the old style, too.

Even better with headlights that match.

thanks for the kind words guys.

I'm actually thinking about a hood upgrade to be honest. I'm only rockin' 94-95 style headlights because the seller from Germany sent me the wrong ones! I didn't want to wait a month to get an replacement either as I sold my stock headlights once I got mine. Anyways - It's not something I'm too worried about.

I do however want to drop the rear a little bit but I don't know how that's going to work. lol and yes I know I need a new license plate. haha

thanks bro - Yeah, Sadly I don't have center caps yet for my car. I'm still awaiting on a friend of mine to see what can be done. Although, I have found a source from Germany who has told me that there might be some AMG center caps left technically available from MB itself in Germany. Let's hope this is true, I still have to reply to their email with the part# of my wheels and the dimension of the center caps.

... and your C43 is looking clean man. Keep up the good work. I was discussing with some fellow MB people at the meet this weekend and we all agreed that a W202 would be a nice car to own. Hell, Maybe someday I'll be rocking one because they are seriously one of my favorite cars still from MB today.

Yeah, W202's are definitely nice when they are done right.

Yeah, The center caps on the Hammer's are 2.5" opposed to the standard MB size of 3" I wish they were all the same so things would be much easier on me. I got my wheels on ebay luckily, someone here on the forums tipped me off to the seller and I still don't and can't remember who told me but I need to thank him.

Anyways, I will be painting my car soon actually. Once I receive side skirts, but that's if the deal goes through as I don't know what is going on at the moment. Either way, the body panels will be painted white soon and I'll be doing some other mods so stay tuned.

and you should definitely move to CA, it's the place to be when it comes to the awesome MB meets. Open up a tint shop and hook me up with some free tint.

I was hoping no one would notice.

I'm still mad about how I lost that tow hook cover on the freeway.

hey Chris Looks great with all the mods you did I really like it!

Just a thought as far as the front plate if you didn't want to do the filler strip, the blank euro plate works pretty well. I did it on mine in which the frame and blank black license plate was about 20 bucks total. I dunno I think it worked pretty well and was a quick easy improvement.

What did you paint the grill insert with? It lasts pretty good?

thanks!

where did you pick up the Euro plate for? and do you know of a place where I can get the filler strip for the front license plate? I would do that but I don't know of any way to obtain one. It does look nice on your car however, makes it look extra clean in the front.
