Default W126 420 SEL - Why Not?

Perusing the interweb a few months ago I stumbled on a car that ticked all the boxes (except it needed some 'minor' work). I didn't have time for a project as I am still working 3 jobs 7 days a week, anywho, I ended up with a project. The seller provided false information and the short of the story is that it turns out the car hadn't been driven for 5 years and needed a lot of work.
So after re-wiring the accessories, installing a new stereo which did not previously exist and after investing some intense hours and dreadful amounts of money into this pit, I ended up with this.





Hit a kangaroo on a 2500 mile round trip:



New transmission filter, diff oil, ball joints, wiring, changed frozen brake calipers hgeez: etc.
(Those with a keen eye may notice the spare W126 that was purchased for parts to get this thing running half decent!)








The re-wiring and cleaning up process:

No hard and fast plans at the moment, just driving it as an every day car.
Working too much this year, however next year might include some big changes, just going to go with the flow and see what comes.
