First post - I've been lurking for a while, enjoying the information exchange on this forum.
I picked up a C230 Coupe (Black/Black Leather) in September and I absolutely love the car. Mechanically its great, having been serviced at Atlanta Classic here in Atlanta by the previous owner.

Two purely appearance questions:
1. I've seen previous posts discussing refinishing (re-painting?) wheels. The previous owner of my coupe was in serious need of some curb feelers and has done a pretty good job of scraping up the wheels. Anyone know of a shop in the Atlanta area that can do this?
2. Has anyone had any luck with a wood dash conversion for this model? This is the only item I'd want to change on the interior, but I haven't found a kit for this model.

Thanks for any info!

Rim Repair

Hi, There is a place in Atlanta that specializes in repairing rims, but they are extremely expensive. They are called Metro Wheels, I believe they are in Marietta. I also have a set of Mercedes seven spoke rims with Continential Tires (I think) with les than 100 miles on them for sale. Tires and rims for $1,000. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!!
Joseph.

1. There is a place in Doraville or Chamblee that is supposed to be good but a bit pricey. Call the people at Gran Turismo (great place for tires, balancing, alignments!) and ask them. They are sports car specialists and will give you good recommendations.
2. Have you tried Bekkers.com? They are well-known aftermarket part suppliers and actually based in Albany or Augusta.

I had a '61 until not too long ago. Massive power from its 948 cc engine ;)

We need to get a gathering of MB enthusiasts in the Atlanta area!

Thanks for the input, folks!

I didn't think about Gran Turismo. They put tires on my Sprite, and they're right down the road from my office.
