Serge, the Montreal looks like a great car for a little restoration work!

I went through Montreal the Essential Companion and most of the NACA ducts were very dark satin finish like Don said and not gloss, as I just repainted mine:-(. One was light silver...

One other interesting thing of note in MtEC, is that the wood of the steering wheel is also specific to the color scheme of the car. Darker cars tend to have darker wood steering wheels while other cars have lighter wood. The medium blue car has the lightest color wood of all, I believe. This doesn't matter if you intend to paint the car its original color.

Wow, that is a lot of work for one day! I hope that you can remember how to put it all back together again. You want to make certain that no tiny parts are lost because they may be very difficult to replace; unless you have a parts car.

On a side note: this Montreal must have been completed very early in the production run. It lacks the front spoiler, has the two part door handles and the square license plate frame. It doesn't really mean anything, but it's fun to see.

Do you have the chassis number?

At the beginning, it was a project in common with Serge and another Fellow for that car that I was proposed.

He started the resto project with us.

Serge's share has been bought back in 11/2015.

At the moment, I wonder if I won't keep the car for myself as the result is fantastic.

And as I prefer it to the 2600.

Sill covers on the Arese Museum display car

To add to the endless story of paint configurations:

The (newly added?) orange Montreal in the Arese Museum where I was last week - which must be a very early production one or a show car, because it has a few visibly „hand built“ things like the door handles or different seat covers - has the lower body panels („sill covers“) in an extremely dark grey, almost black, and definitely not in gloss, but satin. So the Merc lava color would be a little too light, and glossy would be wrong. See picture.

Danny, is your Montreal now finished? Would you attach more photos of it when you have a chance? Also the Montreal 'is' a 2600 too;-)

Yes, Mark, it's mechanically finished.

And drives, brakes, steers... well.

Some things to fit however.

Including the windshield.
