Were you referring to the Velour AMG mats ... in the sunlight they do look a teeny bit lighter black :-/ ... maybe my imagination
Bit still an improvement on the twist version.

Noticed that the surface of the paintwork was a bit rough , around the lower wings and front doors, so i purchased a clay mit this morning and got to work expecting it to be a chore. An hour later i had not only clayed the nearside of the car i gave it a polish with some "Black Hole".

Not bad for a 6 1/2 year old car that lives outside.





Drivers side tomorrow morning and the roof / bonnet + boot on Tuesday before i go to work.

Kenny

Spent most of the day cleaning and washing both SL's before starting on the seats armed with Gliptone Intensive cleaner and instead of using the insipid smelling Gliptone leather conditioner I used the leather conditioner I have that I bought for the Bentley. This actually restores the smell of leather back into the seats which does linger on for ages. I have found the Gliptone stuff over powering and not leathery smelling at all.



Both SL seats soaking up the lovely leather conditioner



I am now resting my achy body

Took the 129 round to Malcolms and did a STAR session on her. Cleared out a bunch of old codes and will now monitor to check if anything pops in (been having a very intermittent low speed hot misfire - revs perfectly and runs perfect when cold).
