Noob from South Africa

Hi All

I joined about a year ago, but now I have some questions, so I guess it's time to do the right thing and introduce myself first.

I live in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. I work in the motor industry and I've been very involved in designing new assembly equipment for the factory where the W204 is currently being built and I was also involved when the W203 production lines were being built.

I'm mostly involved with 4x4ing, but a fellow south African has shown me the light and I'm now looking for an old diesel Merc to run on SWVO.....I have actually been looking for the right diesel Merc on and off for the past 2 years.

I have my heart set on a W124 300D, but good ones are very hard to come by, so I might have to do a transplant, but I'll be posting some questions about that if I cannot find the info I need.
