Cool *EPIC* 2002 ML55 BUILD underway.... (RESTO MOD)

.... pending funds.

No hyperbole here... you guys will enjoy this build hopefully... and at least appreciate how a seemingly "normal guy" can go from full functioning human being one day.... down the slippery slope the next....

Is the roof rack oem or generic?

Any change in the suspension or all oem still (shocks and rear struts)?


Edit: It's too bad with the original amg monoblocks, the 285 50 18s are NLA.

roof rack is OEM.

OEM suspension... but will give a second look... car is riding a bit on the high side

regarding power plant... not going to change anything. at that point... will just be COMPLETELY COMPLETELY irresponsible ! ...we dont want that now, do we ?
