w114 coupe paint question
« on: September 06, 2014, 18:14:18 »
Hi Guys

Have recently acquired a W114 coupe . 250CE  its one owner from new , never welded and 99% in its original paint - hellbeige with dark tobacco roof (both codes on body plate) . My question is 

There is no trim between the paint colours on the rear roof pillar . how did Mercedes paint the cars Roof first or body first ?

The "line" looks to have been masked in some way ? ( would this have been done like the hubcaps with a mask maybe ? should it be a hard or soft line ?)

Does anyone else have a never painted 2 colour car maybe ?  (and does this 2 colour option have a name !?)

Or is it maybe a quirky paint thing like the W113 hand painted area behind the grill

Any info appreciated !! :)
