Happy 4th of July!

Please allow myself to introduce...myself.

To begin, I am actually a dyed in the wool Volvo gear head. Please bear with my bias...BUT, I have recently aquired a very nice 94 e320 w/ a wiring issue (not a big deal actually). I'm looking to learn a bit more about Merc's and contribute what I can.

My knowledge base is build upon many years of Volvo engine building, tuning, restoration. I have experienced many different jobs, from corporate design director to sign designer/fabricator to industrial mechanic to 12volt installer. I have owned a few small businesses over the years and have moonlighted as a freelance designer for about 15 years. Basically, I wrench, weld, and draw.

I am not afraid to tear into an engine w/o a manual. I am a bug for detail and doing things "right" the 1st. time. I hope my experience in mechanics, fabrication and art are useful to the other members on this site. I promise to contribute all I can and not flame anybody for their opinion, right or wrong.

Be warned though, I am a hardcore news junkie and politics freak. I will be more than happy to debate anybody on various social/political issues, but I would rather focus on the E320 and the like.

I will have many questions about the W124 (fav. model) and thank all members in advance for their help.
