I'd get them 100 spoke rims back, then slap them on the black one and bag it.

And these:

Are all still in my garage and wouldn't be too shabby in my opinion.

If 8x16 et11 on all four corners is too wide up front, I've got both the Fondmetal (on my convertible) and some 7" BBS RA to go with the black ones.

Unfortunately, those wire wheels were junk. They weighed 40lbs each, and had rust on them. Good riddens. I do still have one center cap I have not yet been able to dump. It's a cool paperweight. 3 little (w114) Piggies m130-imageuploadedbyautoguide1400871258.885598.jpg

Those are cool wheels. These cars look great with the painted hubcaps too though.

That black coupe looks great. As do those wheels - love them! Are they the ones you mention in your signature line? Are they Rial or BBS?
Cheers, Drew

Are you sure you won't be going back with the hubcaps?

Wheels change in a matter of minutes. I'm not talking about a permanent modification or anything. I won't discard the wheels and hubcaps, probably just do the exact same thing I did with my 1973 450sl. Bring it back from the dead, enjoy it for a while with some 16" wheels, and probably sell it after I fix everything as best I I can justify.

My plan (if I can get a title for it) is to make the black coupe 100% stock, and restore it. Because I have not yet learned to weld, after I get both the coupes mobile, driving (able to drive a few careful miles without hurting anyone one or anything), then I plan to give welding a shot on either the sedan or the coupe. The sedan seems easier at this point. ... BUT...

If the rear clip of the sedan is going to end up getting removed for the blue coupe, then there's really no point.

Can anyone tell me if the rear clip if my sedan should work for a coupe?

I'm away and have no access to the EPC.

3 little (w114) Piggies m130

A few days ago I through I'd give a shot at starting the black 1972 after realizing that it cranked easily.


And after blowing those shells out of there, I sprayed some starting fluid in there:


With just a lot if cranking on the starter, approximately a half quart or more of trans fluid dumped out below the radiator. That was surprising to me, but what the seller said would happen.
