I’m ready to take the plunge. I’ve taken all the usual beginner steps. From from lurking for a while, then buying a 93’ 2.8L 300e M104, to searching endless topics and DIY’s. This weekend the car gets the windshield pulled to correct a poorly installed windshield from PO, rust repairs on the same and roof painted ( wish I could have whole car done but $$$)
The real investment starts when I consider the suspension. I’m planning on total rebuild of front and rear including sub frame mounts, rear control arm bushings, shocks/struts... the works. I know I’ll have way more invested than it’s worth but I’m enjoying learning about the car. Suspension rebuild will begin in June.
I’ve gone through all the fluids so far. Upper wire harness already replaced. Needs lower harness done. The ETA looks to be rebuilt (factory) and it runs great. Still have lots of mechanical/ electrical to inspect and sagging roof liner to fix. Plenty of jobs for the coming year. Wish me luck. Though I’ve combed all the DIY’s on suspension, Any advice is appreciated.
