What is it?
This is a complete Burl Wood dash strip set for the late model Mercedes-Benz R107 SL. It is our own, exclusive reproduction of the now unavailable Mercedes-Benz originals. We have built these dash strips to the highest standards.
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
These dash strips span the width of the dashboard; above the glove box and beneath the heater vents. It replaces original part number 1076803871.
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 a fair amount!
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?
They are glued into place on their chrome backing frame. In our workshops, we use Evo-stik Impact and a paint brush which is available on our store as 000.0007. Please note, we cannot guarantee that Evo-stik can be shipped outside of the UK due to regulations regarding dangerous goods/chemicals.
Depending on the specification of your vehicle, you may have additional switches in the centre of the dashboard below the heater vents (courtesy light, heated rear screen, SLC sunroof). If this is the case, you will need to trim the wood strips to allow openings for these switches.
What else do I need to know?
This dash strip only suits Right Hand Drive cars made from 1986 to 1989.
As with all our ‘exclusive’ products, we build to our own specification - if it isn’t good enough to put on an SL Shop car, we won’t sell it.
