Cheers! Thanks, very enjoyable project, taking a little longer than I wanted to, but I do love this car!

I'm not sure what original hardware should have been supplied with this set, it was advertised on ebay as missing hardware (though it was in original box and was NOS).



The dead pad took the longest! Left door seal plastic trim removed first (one screw, one plastic rivet at the seat rail then pops upward), hood lever (8mm screw) and that left kick panel removed, then, there is enough room to fold the carper over. 2 holes directly through the carpet, standard black ABS plate I made as a back up, and sandwich of:

Pedal/Carpet/ABS - secured with flat head countersink hex screws, washer and lock nut in the back side.

Regards,
D

Thanks D that sounds easy enough. I always thought that there should be one just did not want to drill any holes. Your way sounds great. Who's better than you D. Great job.

I agree with you 100%, the place is there, and the pad just looks at home imo, never seen one fitted from the factory but should be there if sport pedals are fitted. Here is one:



and here is the other one

Picked up updated and much improved oil filler caps yesterday, OE from the dealer, 000-010-13-85-64. Much much better ergonomics/grip due to the raised "handle" area. I picked up x3 of these - love em!!! Now in all 3 cars...

Last Sunday of Winter Sequim Washington.

It is the last week of winter and with the Temp above 60 deg today off came the top and took a drive with the dog in the back. We stopped at John Wayne Marina to walk the dog who was happy to have the wind in his hair.

Hi! I've been a member since I purchased the car in 2015, but haven't been active since then.

Today, my SL (Janis, as I call her) got some love. Popped the hardtop off and got some topless driving in. Floating around 80 degrees with a light breeze.

not 100% sure, but it looks like something similar on my car. Is there a little hole in the underside of that black pipe to the right of the little white pipe youre highlighting? Cant remember what its for, air flow maybe?

While replacing many worn out parts on my new to me 1992 300sl - new brakes and rotors, new shocks, struts, front wheel bearings and more. Amazing to find all the broken plastic pieces after 27 years, and some things are a surprise. I wondered why my right front wheel hit the fender liner on bumps in turns - besides the strut was shot the bump stop was missing on that side. How does that happen? Lots of deferred maintenance, but motor and trans are strong at 84k and going thru bit by bit fixing, replacing things that have to get done to enjoy this ride! New motor mounts, trans mount, flex discs also made a huge difference, did those last week.
