450SLC Repaint part 3

The 450SLC is now completed.   Last week the actual spraying was done, and this week the car was polished, re-assembled and checked.    I do my final inspection and collect the car this weekend.


In addition to having the car re-sprayed, I had the air cleaner resprayed in black and the chrome arch covers removed as they can attract rust.    The brackets that attach the fog lights were also done.

I personally find the chrome arch covers gaudy.   They are not factory, but were a popular period accessory.  The respray was a good opportunity to remove them.

The resprayed 906G really sets off the lines of the SLC.  I personally find it to be one of the nicer colours offered on the 450SLC.
