Hundreds of sketches later, the final product is this 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 and its lovely maroon exterior. The body and exterior are in great shape, with the hardtop also sporting the exterior color. Breaking away from all the maroon is this car's factory chrome wheels with Mercedes-Benz wheels center caps still in place.
