Hey all, not sure I've posted this on this forum yet, but I've been posting on the SL113 forum and MBCA as well.
For those interested, a while back a friend brought me his newly acquired 65 230SL for a bit of renovation. The car was advertised as "running and driving", but wasn't running when it was being picked up. The car was last registered about 10 years ago, but the damage done from sitting was rearing it's head as I was going through it to get her running.
Overall, it went from a couple hoses to a full blown engine / engine bay restoration. Which hey, I'm not complaining. In addition to bringing back the engine bay to factory spec, the brake system is going to be gone through and 100% restored, as well anything else needing attention on the car.
I've been posting everything on my blog because it's easier to post tons of pictures and have a running commentary on everything. I'll be posting updates and any questions/comments here on the forum though!
With that, for those who are still interested here's the link to every post with the "Pagoda" label so far. About 9 "chapters" and some other posts. I try to make them as picture heavy as I can, and have a running commentary throughout the post. It's a bit annoying to do something similar on forums, so I'll keep the big stuff to the blog. The latest updated (chapter 9) is the first post that should come up: Artisan : 230SL
