ok great, thanks for that guys.
Erik, your resto project looks great, and i love the red interior.
i just changed over my tan interior to white, from my 230.4
i am going to make a photobucket account or similar, so i can link to my car.
this will help me i think, as i'm 17, and am lapping up all the tips/knowledge i can share and get my hands on.
i can see this forum becoming a really good base for understanding and learning these cars further.
i see there, no stiffening. the engine seems to fit fairly compactly.
i was look at a 280 (se?) for sale that had a BA Falcon engine in it, which actually fit perfectly..
however, i only want a merc engine in mine, so i think a M110 twin cam might be the way to go, as that shouldnt soften the steering or brakes. i just completely replaced every bit of suspension (sports) and braking .. so that might be interesing
