Off to the upholsterers
Everything covered in leather or vinyl was removed and transported up to Hudson Valley Auto Interiors. The seats will be recovered in AutoLux leather to factory specification in the original colour of VM 3218 ‘pelle beige’. The dash and center console will be recovered in a Mercedes black vinyl that is a very close match to the original factory grain.
