    Been a productive weekend

    I trimmed the plastic bumper reinforcement bracket as per AMG


    I fabricated steel brackets to support the Brabus exhaust tips- these sandwich between the exhaust hanger brackets and the car, then bolted to the provided slots of the tops of the tips


    Painted:




    Engine bay cleaned - still need to find a star!


    Grille removed, using my custom tool to prise the plastic tabs at bottom


    Custom made tool


    Grille separated, there was probably around 80 tabs. Silver part prepped & sprayed:


    Done!








    Loving the ceramic coating, just wash it, thats it!


    I mixed up a graphite colour for the exhaust tips, as black looked a little lost.


    I sprayed the diffuser central section body colour, this will stay till I get a Brabus one


    Just needs a little V8 rumble to match the looks

    This is one Floosie that's hit the jackpot, it'll never want to leave.

    Should that day come and it follows the Jag's time with Alec, I'll have weeks left afor I draw my state pension.

    This truly is a wondrous car, I look forward to meeting it in person and if I'm a good old man, being taken for a spin in it.

    I wonder how long it'll be before this finds its way onto a certain Youtube channel.

    A little frivolous touch from Sandown Mercedes Benz / Brabus

    Installed




    Had to remove the door card to fit them. Much better now in my opinion!

    Lovely Jubbly Alec,

    It's the little things changed that make the whole so much more.

    More sales promotional reading material arrived, courtesy of German eBay

    A proper hardback book!

    Why does no-one seem to spec cars new as well as the pictures




    Off to Revtronic, Bradford on Sat morning to get the Speedometer Cluster reflashed

    When i look for E63 estates on the continent the colour combos are far more adventurous, here people are to middle of the road. Mercedes do some amazing paint colours but try finding any used, its all Black,Grey,Silver and white.

    Edit, Bradford is next door for me, what time you due?

    I hope you can read German Alec!

    The interiors in brochures are always fantastic, I suppose most S-classes are specced by business people to a certain budget.
