Edit isn't working for some reason.
The pictures are dark but on the second one the brake booster is that drum mounted right behind the bullet lens on the driver side.

I'm new to the post, if I could add, As far as I know to fit the vented rotors up front you'll need the spindles too. Didn't know Wilwood has a master that fits. I'm doing a similar conversion. I already have the w108 4.5 rearend in the car.

I'm pretty sure the master won't be a direct fit. The wilwood is like 250 bucks too. I found a 1" bore master used in hot rods for like 60 bucks on eBay. Gonna use that. Most likely will have some fabrication involved, pushrod at least.
I'm puttin the whole subframe w/sway bar and power steering from the 108 in my car. Cox racing poly bushings are 260 bucks for front and rear!! Has anyone used these? How do they affect ride an roll stiffness?

Well while I'm waiting on getting the car where I can put it up on jack stands to pull all the suspension out I have found taillight here and there some good right side but most left are bad. The more I look at Sband SEb cars the less I like the big taillights. I'm thinking it may be way cheaper and better looking In my opinion to fill the rear panel to use the 220b w110 style lights. All the coupes use small lights as well as w108.

I'm thinking of using some brushed stainless I have to fill the rear panel across the rear and maybe lose the overriders.

That's funny, I am the opposite. I reckon the little lights look squinty. I was looking to some 600 tail lights for my coupe to try to fill the rear out more. Will be watching your solution with interest.

I need surgery. Yay. I guess I'm building in my head for a while. What size and et wheels and tires have been successfully run on the fintails? Absolute max I would go is 17". I really was thinking 15 would be the right size to still have some sidewall cusion for ride quality, but all the benz wheels I like are at least 16". I want the slk 16x7 et37 front 16x8 et30 rear but expensive.

I have 15x7 C230 Wheels (1998), and they *just* fit. Didn't modify the fender, so you might get something larger if you do that. I am using 15mm spacers. There is some pictures and details on my build thread...

Hope you hand gets better soon.

Here's a picture of the car with the C230 wheels and the car has one coil cut from each spring to lower it a little bit.

I like the look and stance of the car.
