So carrying on after my last post the cars prep went on & on & on lol.

Image

Image

Image

Car was then ready to start getting primed.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then flattened down ready for paint.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then I got sent these while I was away on holiday.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The car originally came with a black roof which I wasn't sure about at first but it started growing on me, then I had a idea of changing it to tie in more the cars new look I was going with.

So I decided to go with Mercedes Havana Brown which im so glad I did.

Image

Image

The guys in the bodyshop then fitted all the panels for me so they made sure they all lined up correctly.

Image

Once all painted I had the big job of putting the car all back together, I picked all my chromes up from Doug Taylor Polishing which I highly recommend & then started on the door handles, grille, lights etc to be able to get the home & out of the bodyshops way.

Image

Image

Image

After getting the car home I cracked on with the rest of the chromes.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Bumpers had new rubbers fitted before going back on the car which a pain in the ass to do.

Image

Image

Then I cleaned the interior up & fitted all my little retro touches all ready for its very first show which happened to be the following day.

During the week I speaking to a friend of mine who was going to the same local show about taking some pictures & he decided to make a day of, coming to my house, at the show & a old petrol station we stopped at on the way home.

The feature is now up on the Slam Media website, see here - http://slammedia.net/the-governor/

Here are a few of my favourites from the shoot.

Still loads to come, next is the custom exhaust when I get a chance to pop up to Infinity Exhausts in Bristol.

So after Retro Rides two weekends ago I found out that actually picked up an award for one of the Lowset's cars of the show which I was really shocked about as there were some very special cars there despite the weather.

These were the awards & also the stand I was part of on the day also won best club stand.

Image

So this weekend just gone I decided last minute to pop along to a localish show at Cheddar called Sweetshop Automotive Summer Showdown & came away with this best car in the park,another shock.

Image

Here are some of the best pictures I've found from the day.

Its been a busy few months of shows & meets for the Mercedes.

First a local Retro meet which I won best car of the evening.

Image

Then I decided to take it along to the Forge Motorsport Action Day at Castle Coombe.

On the Forge Motorsport stand.

Image

Image

Image

Image

While I was there I got invited to 100% Tuning in Rotterdam which I really couldn't say no too as its not often you get invited to such a big show, so ferry & hotel was booked & off we went.

Inbetween waiting for then the previous owner sent me some pictures he found of the car.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So cool as that is one thing I do want to do in the future is use it for a wedding car.

Back in the bodyshop for some more little touch ups & I had the whole of the underneath plus inner arches undersealed, no pics tho im afraid.

Image

Also ordered a new boot rubber & Grille rubber which I haven't fitted yet.

Image

Image

So then the time came for the long journey from Devon to Rotterdam which I must admit I was looking forward to lol !

Met up with a few mates in Bristol on the way & then carried on to Dover to catch the 07.30am ferry to Calais.

On the Ferry

Image

Setting up at the show in the Ahoy arena.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And some better ones ive found from over the 2 days.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

On the Sunday evening we had to move the cars from the hall we were parked in ready for the trip home on Monday morning.

Image

Image

And then we started the long journey home after a fantastic weekend at the show.

One of many fuel stops.

Image

Image

Image

It wasn't a great journey home, well not bad apart from the pot holes in Belgium.

Bent 2 lips.

Image

Image

So it was lucky I ordered these before I went, 2 inch ones for the front & with these I can then work out how wide I can go on the rear.

Image

Image

So all in all it was a great trip apart a few hiccups, defiantly recommend it for next year.

With the bent lip problems & the time of year I decided to put the white walls back on which really suit the car, some people think even better than the splits but im not sure about that maybe as good.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

That's all for now, plenty to come over the winter so watch this space.
