    Default Mercedes Benz 1971 W114 resto

    Hey Ladies and Gentlemen,

    This is my first car I am going to mod and Build! please dont judge me about the looks and about my englando typing.

    I am Jordy from the Netherlands, 22 years old, I live in a small village called Heesch. and never touched a car in my life!
    I work in Construction, and all my free time goes to Fitness, kickboxing and Football.

    This is my normal daily drive.

    BUT! that will change NOW! I will end this MADNESS myself and care more about me freshly new bought old car. I waited for this car for about 1,5 year. I wanted a nice body and a good working engine. JUST LIKE MYSELF!

    Now i have severall plans for this car and still gotta decide what i am going to do exactly with it.. but I can ensure you that it will be Bagged (staying classy ofcourse ).

    Ofcourse some nice rims and a some kind of engine rebuild/cleaning/stuff things...

    But lets stop talking because pictures are love and pictures are life!

    • Some things you just cant see when you buy a car of this age.. unfortunaly..

    uhmm well thats it for now.. i dont have a huge tree in the backyard that grows benjamins... if you know what I mean!?

    It also wont be a fast build, likfe every week a new engine, wheels paint and interior. I dont have the money for it.. so everything will come by time.. i hope i wont disappoint you guys with this!?! I just need 2 think twice or three times before I do something about the car. Because mistakes cost allot.. (at least for me then.. )
    here is some kind of photoshop about how i would like to have it in the future..

    Default Sorry its been so long..

    hi guys, its been a long ass time i've been on stance-works.
    Hath some problems in my life, was working day and night. Got into Jail, and allot of shitty stuff happend.

    BUT! time for some positif things! I hath 1,5 week off from work so i started working on my Mercedes again!
    I did allot of stuff, changed some ideas and all that kind of crap.
    so lets stop the crap and let me show you guys some pictures.



    Got the windows out of the doors..






    Got the doors out, all of them.



    Did some bumper repairing on both Sides!








    Thats not me BTW.









    After that i cleaned some doors and started working on them..
    Yes its not green its an other door because one of them was pretty damn rusted







    Also did some trunk stuff, because it looks like someone has tried to break it open in the past....



    And some welding to the front sides.. (sorry dont remember the name for it)



    And put it in some Primer after



    Sanded some pieces..













    Also took the Hood off, that thing looked terrible..



    And did some rust busting and cleaning to it.. not done yet though..











    Conclusion: worked so hard on it, but feels like i didnt do enough in the amount of time.. the shitty thing is I still have to learn ALLOT!!
    And sorry for the people that hoped for some nice wheels and a big ass stance like a pancake. I got my priorities, Iwant a clean and rust free car. sorry if I disappointed some of you guys or girls..

    Its a slow project because i do everything myself except the welding.

    Hope you guys like the pictures! CHeers guys!

    Greetings from The Netherlands!

    Default shit happened.. tired as fuck

    So guys, decided to update this a bit, i did some things to the bodywork again.
    Allot of grinding sanding cutting and scrubbing has been done.

    Still dont have a Job, so that time comes in handy for the car ofcourse

    I can make a ridicilous long story here.. but im gonna skip on that, i'm awake for like 42 hours now......
    And thats why ill let the pictures do the talking:















    SHOPDOG!





    And filled some little puts again..





    I really would appreciate some thoughts or tips that would come in handy!

    Nice work on the body,i'm curious how it's going to turn out.
    Are you going for a new colour,or just a fresh coat of paint?

    P.s. er is ook een nederlands gedeelte hier op het forum,misschien moet je daar eens gaan kijken

    Haha, misschien beter uit je doppe kijke
    Nee grapje, niet veel updates gehad, maar ben er nu druk mee bezig dus komt goed

    So another update, just a little one though..
    here are some pictures of me welding for the first time in my life, i think it turned out pretty good!!







    Then I started to sand and clean the Trunk, I love sanding things btw..





    looks pretty well done imo.

    And I went on a journey for finding more rust
    and found this....



    Yeah that just sucks, but I am glad i found it because i dont want to discover it in a year or 2 when my foot goes trough the bottom....

    also orderd some sheet metal, and a piece for repairing the rear bumper on the inside.
    soon more updates!!

    love you all

    Nice Saab 95 hiding in the background! My dad used to have one of those.. Also; nice work on the project, curious to see how this'll end up looking.

    Kun je eigenlijk met zo'n oude diesel nog wel een stad in als 'ie af is? Of heb je andere plannen voor de auto, wat motor betreft?

    Red face welding and sanding.. it will be fun.. they said..

    so another update guys, some of my shiit got a base coat. and i welded some more stuff..
    and sanded some things...
    and i also did sand some panels of the car
    did i mention i have sanded my car yet?
    well i did,, what a terrible thing to do..

    here are some pictures!
    because pictures say more than words..

    stuff arrived



    Sanded doors untill they were as straight and tight as a 18 year old virgin




    Welded this together so i will have a water tight roof..



    The "Stuff" that arrived, made it flush with the rest of the body of the car.
    .







    Sanded all the doors eventually and ready for a base coat!!








    Used the Jack from the trunk of the car so could work on the car



    First cutted all the shit out..



    Made some new shit to start rusting



    And I tried something new!! nah jk just sanding






    And some more rust repairs...




    so theres still allot of shit to do, but im pleased they way its going. I am also very satisfied i did it all myself, except for paiting then..

    I really would appreciate some tips or heads up on anything that i possibly could encounter in the future.



    ha.. ha..
