The Front Undertray

Step 01

Retrieve your 300 SL and carefully turn it upside down on a soft cloth. Fit the Front Undertray between the front wheels, and secure the front edge of the Front Undertray to the Main Chassis with two (2) CM screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Secure the middle section of the Front Undertray to the Wheel Arch Liners with four (4) EP screws.

I needed to flex the Wheel Liners a bit to get these holes to line up:

Secure the rear section of the Front Undertray to the Rocker Panels with four (4) BM screws.

Getting these holes to line up required squeezing the sides of the metal Body together, which takes quite a bit of effort. Get some help if needed:

Thoughts


It is too bad that we are covering up all of the wonderful tubular frame that made this vehicle so unique! But, the real 300 SL had these panels, so here we are.
