Thumbs up Love my 1986 560SL

I have had this car for 4 years, it like all things has it's issues, Right now it is having the timing cover leak fixed, transmission line leaks fixed, idler arm, breaks and tires. next is to fix some rust bubble popping up around the molding from a previous fix before my time with it. After that it is the climate control doesn't work blows hot air all the time from the floor. From threads i read this can be a big chore to single out the cause.(?) I end up having more money than time so alot I farm out.

The silly thing that bothers me is what i have assumed to be the outside temp gauge in the middle of the dash doesn't work.

The thing that bothers the wife is the seats seem to have lost their comfort, anyone if these have been reupholstered to original?

Even with all these issue I still continue to Love driving it
