The car looks great. Very well done restoration processs :)
I currently work with a same project (mb 170s, 51). know how many hours it requires to accomplish what you have done so far :-)

The inside element shoukd be painted grey. Exact color code ciould be found here in the forum. However, I have done my own in chrome as I didnt have this information at time.

Best regards from sweden

Thanks Thomas.  Perhaps one of the pros might no the code... 

Not sure I can figure the time in hours...  Years for sure...  Especially when you are relying on others to paint, or leather, etc..

I have a lot I can do now.  I need to put my new wires in and have been stalling because of an addition on my house which

has taken almost a year now.

I might have to bug Henry to see what it takes for him to rebuild my engine but he appears to be busy on Scott's for now

and I am still finishing this home project up.

The color is "Cement Gray". (RAL 7033) is what I have in notes.  Henry can confirm or correct.
When I had mine painted about 9 years ago, someone had painted it black, the painter removed layers of paint and the bottom layer was a green/gray and we were satisfied that the "cement gray" was the correct color.

I would like to get mine repainted again, but first I need to find out what my final cost of the engine rebuild is going to add up to.

Yes it's RAL 7033. Yes I'm available to rebuild engines if you can wait a bit. Feel free to call to discuss.

Thanks Scott and Henry.  Obviously no rush on engine but I will call soon to start the conversation.  Thanks for the color code!!

@hansvdc. Maybe a too tough challenge. But, honestly it's on a level I would go for a A/B-cab restoration project :-)
