Smile Introducing myself...Michaels450SL

Hello everyone, my name is Michael, hence the Michaels450SL. I recently purchased a 1980 450SL, and am in the process of dialing it in, and detailing it, to drive for the next year or so, then resell for a profit. I am a retired Volvo Master Tech, and usually I buy, fix up, and resell older 122 S, and P1800 models. I have worked on MB's for many years in the shops and dealerships that I worked for, all over the US, but this is my first time owning an MB, as I have always wanted an older SL.

I do have a problem I have run into on this one, I don't believe it will be a major issue, but I will discuss it at a later time.

For now, just wanted to say Hello, hope everyone in the US is enjoying their 4th of July, and for those in England, remember why we separated from your country. Just a little 4th of July humor.
