    Thanks for the advice! And thanks to everyone that has given me information! With my little bit of research I thought I was doing ok on price. I knew walking into it I’d definitely be spending some cash but would also know what’s even done. I’m happy so far and still have a ways to go on all...

    Thanks for the advice. I’m honestly not sure on the A/C. It’s lower on the list. I do know it blows cool air not cold though. I’ve been planning on taking the temperature of what it’s blowing out but keep forgetting to grab my thermometer. I’ll have to check the heater. I’ve honestly not checked...

    I’m definitely going to get the body work done by someone I can trust. My mechanic has someone he has recommended. I haven’t spoken with him yet but will get a feel for him when time gets closer. I’m definitely not going with bondo. Will definitely have metal replaced. I’m driving the car as...

  11. Removing the sunvisors for good

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    My sun visors are off of my 560SL. Previous owner had removed them. Of course the tabs on them are broken. I’m not to worried on putting them back on at this time. I’m going to focus on other things first.

    It looks great until you get close and start seeing the multiple blemishes. The car does have a good bit of scratches. Even a big long one across the hood that was filled before. Also on the hood is a filled area where some a hole keyed it writing “nice car “. The sides are nice but there are a...
