This 1977 euro w116 belongs to a gentleman in Norway - for any of you who love forum threads that detail extensive restorations, his story, the accompanying high-resolution photographs and the car that results from his efforts are an amazing delight.
What may be of great interest on this forum is the use of leather on almost every interior surface, including the dashboard and headliner. You'll find that part of the story beginning on page 3.
Here is a link to the original thread (all 25+ pages of it), in Norwegian. I found it quite easy to read by using the auto-translate feature in Google Chrome: http://www.mbentusiastklubb.com/smf/index.php?topic=16826.0
...to whet your appetite, here is a picture of the final result:

long answer, no.
but the work he put in is very impressive, wish i had such abilities!
having put a few 116s back on the road, i can attest to how long this would have taken!

Sorry, not really my cup of tea. I don't believe that slapping wood and leather everywhere "enhances" anything.
