What is it?
This is a complete, blank Burl Wood Heater Panel for the Mercedes-Benz R107 SL Models. Unlike our pre-cut panels, it has no cut-outs for buttons and dials. It is our own, exclusive reproduction of the now unavailable Mercedes-Benz original.
Although we offer a comprehensive range of heater panel options with pre-cut holes for different specification cars, there have been cases where customer cars have differed from our inventory. We stock this ‘blank’ panel for this reason.
Where does it go?
The interior wood of an R107 SL dashboard can be split into 6 distinct categories:
- Dash strips
- Heater panel
- Ash tray cover
- Gear selector cover
- Gear knob
- Console box
This panel is the centrepiece of the dashboard, where the heater and climate controls lay.
Why do I need it?
Over time your interior wood may become faded, damaged or go missing entirely. In harsh climates it is likely to fade, and being a delicate part of the car can become chipped or cracked through day to day use. Replacing your interior wood makes a big difference to the appearance of your car; after all, if you intend to spend time using your car, you will be staring at the interior wood and chrome often!
What are my options?
We also offer this as part of a complete Burl Wood package deal, including dash strips, heater panel, ash tray cover, gear selector cover, gear knob and console box.
How do I fit it?
The heater panel is bolted on to a black plastic backing plate that holds all of the switches and ancillaries. This entire assembly is in turn held in place by the ashtray “cradle”. Remove the ashtray cradle and the heater panel comes away.
As this is a blank panel, you will need to cut your own holes for buttons and dials.
What else do I need to know?
We only keep limited number of these blank panels in stock so please acknowledge that there could be a longer delivery time. If you are unsure please give us a call on 01789 337 070.
As with all our ‘exclusive’ products, we build to our own specification - if it isn’t good enough to put on an SLSHOP car, we won’t sell it.
