OMG. I can’t believe you are still seeking one. I sold a JJproducts one when I sold my first MB. It was the dark re maroon color. Knowing how long you’ve Ben searching, you should either dye another color, or purchase one new from JJproducts. The JJproducts price now seems to be only a few hundred dollars more than the going rate for a used one.

Yeah I remember that day I opened the PC, and you had bought them just hours before me lol https://www.benzworld.org/forums/r-c...ml#post4725642 TZ diff didn't play in my favor. I always wondered what you had done with them. In any case I have the jjproducts non-folding one. I am looking for _original_ ones otherwise it makes no sense to splash that much imo. Regards

^^^ Geeze they always perilously lift the cars with the rims like that. I always see guys underneath them working. I'm not that stupid to do it without something I trust. Even working inside the car to get little bits makes me nervous that the whole thing is going to tilt and fall with me in it.

Story time:

My building manager is a Guatemalan guy and had his pop over a couple months ago trying to replace a CV axle on their Toyota Civic.

They jacked the car up with a widow maker and were working under that. I walked by, freaked and told them both, "GET THE F**K OUT FROM THERE!"

I ran to my storage locker and loaned them my floor jacks, ramps, wheel chocks, and my 3 ton jack. We put the car up into a proper position and choked the wheels right. He's a really well to do contractor and I scolded him for putting his wife at risk for being a widow. Anytime he wants to work on his car to just knock on my door and he can borrow them.

Just the other day, I saw another guy doing car work a few blocks away from my house. Again double widow makers. This time I facepalmed and walked away.

Seriously, you can get proper floor jacks and wheel chocks at harbor freight for like $30 all in. Being killed by squashing is a horrible way to go.

SO, being uneducated about 107s born several years after my 74, what are all those ball-like things that would be under the right front fender if it was there?
