Return to the BUILD
“Collect and set aside the interior floor pan of your Mercedes 300 SL model. There is nothing to assemble in this phase. You will fit luxury carpets to the floor pan in the next [phase]. During the next 10 phases you will fit the interior floor, the luxury red carpets, and the two seats. You will also install the control pedals and the gear and hand brake levers; assemble the luggage compartment with three suitcases; and fit the firewall support struts.”
- 36A – Floor Pan
The Floor Pan
There are no assembly steps in this phase.
There is nothing to do in this phase, which I think is a first for the 300 SL build. The Floor Pan is one big piece of molded red plastic. Keep it nearby as it will be needed in the next phase.
Running Total of screws used so far: 223
Phase 37 – Interior: Left/Right/Center Carpets
