    Bump. Spring is on its way. $10,000 o.b.o. Thanks for looking. Now just over 100,2XX miles. KTT
  2. Suspension - bang for buck

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    "Replace them all plus this stuff." FWIW: Not sure who you use in NoVA, but I'd take it into an indy you trust and put together a plan of attack based on their view of how to prioritize the work. I replaced a ton of stuff (if you want the list, you'll find it on this site) and realized...
  3. New hood pad pic

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I bought a plastic bristle brush (the kind with a handle that protects your knuckles) and gave it a good brushing. It's wise to cover the engine bay with some old drop cloth when scraping and certainly while glueing.
  4. The friendly 70's...

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    So THAT's how I got the dents on my trunk lid.
  5. Rare but pricy 300sl 5 speed

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    That's not even the good duct tape.

    Will now accept $11,000 o.b.o. Would like to sell before winter to make room in garage. Thanks. KTT
  8. 300/500SL Air Dam

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I would leave the car alone, unless you're into anachronism. The bundt wheels don't go with the airdam.

    Funny thing is, their omelettes have pancake batter in them.

    It's a good thing your dog knows "sit," but more importantly, it seems to have mastered "stay," as well. How much more does the new engine weigh than the old one?
  11. Soft-top problem

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    It may not need much adjusting, if any -- My driver's side closes everytime, but to get the passenger side to latch, I jiggle the cable-release handle in a clockwise direction. That's usually enough to get the passenger side to latch.

    Recent work also includes A/C blower motor, hood pads, flex disks, ball joints, control arms, O2 sensor, and more. Has been upgraded to the '88-'89 third brake light. I'm looking to put this project to bed and replace it with a car that seats the entire family. Thanks for looking. KTT
  14. Wish me luck.

    Funny you should mention the BMW. Drove a 330 ci on Saturday, no fifth seat, though, but has a cool accordion-style box to hold the top in when down. When the top is up, you can collapse the accordion to get a full trunk. The pickings are very slim, not even the Bentley has a 5th seat...
  15. Wish me luck.

    Nice observation. That's an upgrade by prior owner. It is an '86. And, no, MikeD, no 113, unfortunately. Suffering a bit of an early mid-life crisis -- needing something that seats 5, but that leaves very few convertibles to choose from.
