    Leider sind meine Kenntnisse der deutschen Sprache nicht so gut.
    Wenn es keine Einwände gibt, werde ich Kommentare zu den Fotos auf Englisch posten. Das ultimative Ziel ist so viele Fotos wie möglich ohne Text.
    Here are the first pictures of my new project, the restoration of a Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagode from 1965.
    It's imported from Texas, USA and I'm not sure yet but it seems it still has the original paint.
    At least the engine is original.
    Unfortunately the paint has already been sanded and many parts have been removed from the car, I bought the car like this.
    It is already certain that I won't use the 30 years old tires any more.
    But a nice surprise was that the soft top is in a good shape.

    High "anonymous" ;),
    big deal.
    Regarding the original colour/paint, you can find it on the painting plate on the left site of the engine compartment. It seems to me that it is no. 387: dark blue metallic? Thats the colour of my Pagoda.
    Good luck for your project.

    The paint color is 332 G, so dark blue.
    But what I meant is that it seems the car has not been repainted yet.
    And my name is Eric. ;)

    Sorry Eric,
    I didn't read the other thread yet.

    I inspected the bottom of the car and there were several suspicious spots but they appeared OK (only surface rust).
    There seem to be four places with holes.
    At both rears of the sills (the common place), a small one at the front of the left sill and a hole in the bottom behind the drivers seat. With these results I am reasonably satisfied, I can weld them myself.
    But as a nice surprise I saw there is power steering!
    That was not ordered new, as I saw at the papers.

    Continuing with removing parts form the car.
    It seems the transparent plastic can be cleaned.

    The disassembly continues.
    Let's hope I can get all the parts at the right place again some day. ;)

    To remove the exhaust pipes from the manifold was not easy, they were really stuck.
    I used a bolt to press between the flanges and then they got loose.
    The exhaust itself has had its best time. :)
    Furthermore the rubber around the front window was not flexible anymore, it just snapped at several placed.
    Without the rubber I discovered some hidden screws.
    After all they were some useful hours.
