DIY in 1.5 hours? No kidding.
It will take me 15 hours to find all the right tools and a shop floor jack to do the ABC.

It was the notorious ABC that stopped me from buying a 93 or newer SL. If you posted the video 1 1/2 month sooner, I'd have the right car to practice the ABC fixing.
You may want to post your video link in R230 forum.
