Default ML Respray.

I bought a one-owner ML 320 a few months back.
It is a W163 2003 model known as an 'update' before Benz went to the W164 and fitted with factory seven seats!
Although a one-owner with log books and an impeccable service history, it was rather neglected in the body.
No rust whatsoever but a lot of little dings all over the sides and bumpers.
I had planned for it to be just a run around with not much money spent, however, I ended up getting things sorted out (thank you Helmet) and I was happy with the way it drove and handled.

But, the looks annoyed me (especially the dull headlights), so my faithful Jerry was entrusted in tidying it up.
That involved repairing all the dings, taking off the front and rear bumpers, door handles, lights, mirrors, etc. and a full respray!
