Man, that is full-on! Well done! Some questions:
- were you worried that the w111 body would twist with that much of the floor and rear firewall removed? Didn't see any bracing.
- how does the wheelbase match up? A friend in Australia here is doing something similar with a W111 coupe body over a W126, but he had to shorten the 126 wheelbase.
- are you going to convert the 300E into a 500E? It could be a W111 'Hammer'! Classic looks with more modern performance.
I feel like a wimp now just doing a V8 conversion and bolting a different diff in my finnie.
Keep posting, this is fantastic and brave.
