Red face Newbie from Oz.

Hi. This is a great site. I live in Point Lonsdale in Victoria, Australia - by the sea - so have to deal with a lot of salt air blowing in from the south west - which plays up with electrics and fuses.
Am driving 1984 380SE with 300,000kms on the speedo. Car has been converted to dual fuel with LPG.

Current problems that the garage can never seem to get fixed are - hydraulic suspension leaks and oil leaks. Have done a few of my own simple fixes: the the garage used the wrong pump in the washer reservoir which was a poor fit and leaked. Have just overhauled the wipers which were playing up and fingers crossed they will keep going for a while.
