Hi from South Africa

Hi Guys and Girls

Firstly thanks to BenxWorld for all the helpful information.

I have recently received a 1991 560 SEC from my mother and the car has been standing for some time. The body work is in very good condition and the mechanics needs some work. Currently the car starts but I cannot drive it as it has no brakes. So now looking for manuals etc on how to fix her up.

I am a bit of a petrol head and love 4x4 and the entire outdoor activities. Besides the 560 I also have a classic Range Rover and a Defender 90 Puma (daily drive).

Can you guys also maybe give me some pointers on internet spare-shops? The sec's where not very popular in South Africa and one struggles to get parts or people that know what they are talking about here.

Thanks and look forward in getting the old lady back on the road!!!
