Good Morning From Portland
I purchased an '88 560 sl last january and have been restoring it bit by bit with what limited skills I possess and the help of a few local mechanics.
So far I've adjusted the idle. Straightened the steering and alignment. Detailed the interior. Colored a few paint chips. Repaired a stuck throttle and replaced a few wires.
Still on the docket: Dryclean the soft top. Finish paint repairs. Fix a fault in the instrument panel. Troubleshoot an acceleration issue (most important) Recover the seats and possibly add a wooden steering wheel and shift knob.
This looks like a good place for tips and referrals. Thanks for putting this site together!
