Pm box keeps filling up. Sorry. The email function should always work though. (Man I hate the way they let you type a long message and then tell you you can't send it. Thank goodness for cop paste.)

Shep:
I will have a 1" lip if they buyer of the black rs098 wants to swap-out for something bigger. That lone 1/2" has no other purpose though. You can have your pick of my spare barrels. One is for the gold wheel, three are cracked, one was machined by a knucklehead. So there are three extras to choose from. Machined in front of row of four. Cracked in row of three.

So as you see, the spare gold will get a gold barrel the same size as your rear rs009. Perhaps you will be interested in a 2" lip, making a match spare for your rears? Maybe we find a good 1" lip for you too? Lets see how it pans out. I think the rs023 will be selling quickly. Since w123 buyers appear interested, maybe they will want to do something creative:
1) Add 2" to rear 8.5x16 et17
2) Put 5.5" barrels on front: 7.5x16 et30
^^ that would free up two 6" barrels.

If someone wanted 2, but not 1, then you could get a 5.5" barrel, a 6" barrel, a 2" lip, and maybe we could scare up a 1" lip for you too. Time will tell.

More elbow grease. Second two center caps on way. Meanwhile I hope to complete these with some fresh paint on the weaves.

Fonzi,

Happy Holidays, Rick here (aka rewillia);

If you have or ever come a cross a set of the 15" wheels and caps like those shown in the attached photo that would fit my 1988 560SL, I'd buy em off you in a heartbeat. PS; I know they would not be model/period correct but just like the look of them and would love to have a set (4 or 5).

Regards, Rick

Roger that Rick! I once found a set for the female member in Miami who had an AMG to part out in addition to her 560sl I think... Which she had to have a wheel cut off due to a frozen 560sl wheel lug. Mirlena I think was her handle. She never responded and that was probably over a year ago. Missed opportunity. :-( however, I don't think we ever got into the spacer question/issue.




BTW: Since I was overwhelmed by the prospect of removing the seat pads from my 450sl, I took a shortcut and didn't use them, but passed them on to SheppyMach since he said he too could use them... And I think he has more gusto to go at the seats pads. Thanks!
