Lurker coming out of the bushes
I have recently acquired a 2001 R129 with 81600 miles on it. Auction car in need of some TLC. My goal is to have EVERYTHING working this summer. (If that is at all possible.) So far I have managed to get the radio and the outside temperature working. Also got the garage door opener trained. Most time so far has been spent researching and pricing parts needed and desired.
I managed to manually remove the hard top and coax the rag from its cryptic slumber. I am happy to note that despite years in hiding it came out in excellent condition. Still waiting for a mirror to arrive so I can get a plate, then back to the garage for disassembly!
This is not the first project car I have taken on, but possibly the most ambitious. Previous projects include a 1964 Impala convertible, 1965 Coupe De Ville, Early 70's CJ5.
