My first Mercedes

Hello all I got my 300SL from my brother that purchased it from the original owner 10 years ago. I has been stored for the last 4 years because the
evaporator went out in it. You need a/c from time to time here in the south.
So that was my first project removing dash and replacing evaporator, all went well. I put 134a back in it just to make sure it had no other problems or leaks but will soon be putting r12 back in. I also had the famous windshield wiper gear broken so i repaired that..Had the flashing dash lite problem, repaired that.
Then i moved on to engine..it ran rough when it idled so i went thru mixture adj that i found on this site and cleaned iac and all is well now! It seems as tho everything that is plastic or rubber is brittle tho so i am steadily replacing ball joints and tie rod ends and ect.. All in all this car is a lot of fun to drive and I look forward to reading more in this forum about other members adventures.. Top cylinders is my next project!!
