  1. Visor Clips Color

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    You can Send them to me. That's my color.
  2. Hard Top Removal Problem

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    If you feel adventurous you can remove the four nuts on the mechanism, pull the cable and add a few of those little washers you use with pop rivets. I have to admit I do like the cable tie...
  3. OT: A scam a day

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    That's fine. Just ask them to take it out of the prize. And be generous, tell them to double it for their trouble....
  4. Led turn signal upgrade

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Again, nice work. Not sure Ive seen that application before.
  5. 1973 North American Bumper question.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Nice work on that bumper. I feel your pain after having to take mine apart for new chrome uppers. Nice rusty parts and all but to shorten and all.... I bow to your patience and tenacit. I still think it must have come from another model. Keep up the good work.
  6. Replace Windshield

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Right. It always bears checking. That said I have bought from these folks and I'd be concerned about packaging from the U.K. They ship through France and my three packages have become pretty beat up with one chrome part sticking out of the box. Good products but questionable packing for overseas...
  7. Replace Windshield

    Just as a side note: if you order from the SL Shop you don't pay VAT. You also don't need to call them or ask. Once you put in your mailing address and country it is omitted automatically.
  8. 1973 North American Bumper question.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Agreed. I bet you could cut both support and top chrome, re-drill connecting holes for supports and make it work as long as the profile works through the front and fenders. I'd give it a go if that's what I had to work with or else sell it and try to find a 107 bumper.
  9. 1973 North American Bumper question.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Are we sure that the front bumper doesn't belong to another model? I just re-installed my front bumper and no way would there have been that much overlap. You can change the mounts all you like but I'm afraid that won't change the length.
  10. 1973 North American Bumper question.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Took a couple shots of mine that I have apart to replace the driver side chrome. The holes are ovaled but only slightly.
  11. OT: OK so I'm lazy.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Sorry. Does that actually work? It seems that any measurement that does not go through the center of the bore would not yield the proper boltbcirvke diameter.
  12. OT: OK so I'm lazy.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Wow guys. 112 mm diameter circle going through the center of each lug hole. Nothing more complicated. Did I miss something here?
  13. OT but on Mercedes: "My Opinion of Kent Bergsma, Revised"

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Nothing like throwing down the gauntlet....
  14. Soft Top Frame Replacement

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Same here. Bought a used frame and soft top from a 70s 450sl and bolted it to my '85 380 and it was great. 4 bolts and a couple misc. attachments and that's it. Good luck.
  15. Remove Blower Motor

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    What no one mentioned is the need to clean out the vent holes that most likely caused water to collect in that area and rust that spot out in the first place. I had that same issue with mine and wound up breaking off the corners of the plastic housing then having to put something else in there...
