Woody's - 1969 Mercedes-Benz 250 W114

Postby woody m3evo » 17 Nov 2014 11:43

After what happened with the fire I needed a new project & something different, so here it is (sorry its not a Bmw). :lol:

Right guys this is my new project that I picked up last weekend after agreeing a price with the old owner the week before.

Lots of plans including fully re-painting the whole in white, air ride & possibly a set of split rims, also will be running white walls on the original wheels.

Last night picking the car up.

Image

Image

And a few from before when I first looked at the car.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is just a brief write up for the moment which I will edit later on.

Lots more to come so watch this space. :thumbup:

Its been a while but here is a small update.

Car went in for its Mot which uncovered a lot of work that needed doing just to get it on the road which I did expect but not quite so much.

Image

Some of the bad bits that I got pictures of.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

While the car was getting the work done I started ordering parts ready for when I got the car back.

First was some nice new split rims that I wanted before anyone else did on one of these W114.

Image

Mercedes Barock wheels made into 3 piece splits.

Image

Image

Test fitting showed that I would need to space out quite a lot.

Image

Image

So I ordered these H&R 30mm spacers.

Image

These were perfect for the fronts but will need bigger ones for the rear which I will order once the airride has been fitted just in case I go out to far.

Then I got some tyres fitted.

Image

Fronts.

Image

Rears.

Image

I also picked up a cheap headunit for now on eBay, which I will upgrade to a becker one at a later stage.

Image

Then I found a rear window blind on eBay also which I just had to buy.

Image

And then ive had this AA badge at home for as long as I can remember which I also to add to the front grille.

Image

Then to top it all off probably the coolest things ive ever bought.

White Walls.

Image

Fitted.

Image

Image

Image

Please ignore any of the bad bits of bodywork you can see as I know is it a state at the moment, once back from having its airride fitted it will be going into the bodyshop for a full make over.

Last weekend when I dropped it off at Studio Incar.

Image

More updates soon. :thumbup:

Right then here is a long due update of what's been going on.

After picking up a cheap headunit for the car as it didn't come with one I came across this set up which I always planned to get for the car, so I couldn't say no.

Becker unit & cassette player.

Image

As the car was at Studio Incar I had it sent direct to them so they could fit it properly, as the car had no wires or ariel etc.

Also updates were coming through thick & fast about the airride.

Parts turning up.

Image

Image

Then I had pics of wheel set up they were aiming for.

Image

Image

Image

As you can imagine I was very happy with the outcome.

Then lots more pictures kept getting sent to me of different stages of the build.

Start of the boot build.

Image

Image

Image

Brackets for the bags were then designed/mocked up & trail fitted.

Image

Image

Image

Then they were taken away to get power coated.

Image

Then fitted in place.

Image

Front & rear potentiometers were also fitted.

Image

Image

Lines going in.

Image

Image

And the last thing they were waiting for was the dampened brackets.

Image

And finally all done sitting on the floor (well wood blocks for time being as the exhaust won't let it as hangs too low lol).

Image

Image

Image

Image

And one of the exhaust problems lol !

Image

One on the white walls.

Image

Boot was then trimmed & finished (which I still can't believe how good it looks).

Image

Image

Image

Image

Sorry no colour ones yet as it's a surprise.

So last Saturday I made the long journey up to Studio Incar to pick the car up & see it with my own eyes for the first time, WOW was my first word & I can't explain how good their work is, big thanks goes out to the guys who made this happen.

That evening it was tucked away in its brand new home which is still finished.

Image

Image

Image

After a Sunday doing nothing Monday was time to start stripping the car ready for the next stage it's bodywork.

So me & a mate of mine got stuck into it.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

All chromes have now gone off to be redone & car is ready to go off to the bodyshop next week.

I will also add that it needs to all be finished by June 13th, which is its first show of the year Players Classic at Goodwood.

Fingers crossed it's ready.

Ambitious schedule I wish you good luck. The front wings look surprisingly in a good shape as these might rust a lot,
especially round the headlights. I love the interior and air ride installation look top notch.
Shame the dish isn't deeper on the barrocks for 30mm instead of thick spacers. Have you decide on the colour combo already?

Very ambitious I know mate thanks. :thumbup:

Spacers are only to make the wheels clear the body as the offset is et60, dish will come later on now I know how much room I've got to play with & yeah sort of got the colour combo sorted I think. :wink:

So the big job has started of the full respray, after dropping the car off to one of my best friends bodyshop I started to stip the even more, first all the handles & grille came off then I started on the doors & bonnet.

Doors & Bonnet off to get blasted.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The boot lid will also get blasted at a later stage as at the moment it is protecting the boot build from all the dust etc.

Then I left the car with them so they could start the prepping ready for paint.

Image

Image

As they are really busy at the moment I've been helping prep the door shuts.

Image

Image

Also the roof was probably one of the worst parts of the car, so that would need stripping back to metal which I started Friday afternoon but didn't get quite enough time to finish.

Image

Image

Image

Yes I know the rear screen is still fitted but it will be coming out next week.

Also the doors came back from the blasters in really good condition, which we were a bit worried about as we thought they wouldn't come back in one piece, all in all so far I've been very lucky with the lack of rust.

Image

More updates coming soon so watch this space.
