  1. Another should I buy this 560SL thread

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Only if it really needed to painted to begin with, I think. A decent paint job would cost about $5,000-$6,000 U.S. dollars. A very good one would cost more.
  2. Another should I buy this 560SL thread

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I also plan to go see this one because the color make me go rawr. LOL. We must think alike because that's the color combination of my car. The color is "Petrol Blue Green Metallic #877/Crème Beige #275". Apparently there aren't as many SLs around in this color as some other colors. I like it a...
  3. Another should I buy this 560SL thread

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    You have already been waiting thirty five years, so why not wait just a little longer in order to find a 560SL in a color that you like. It's pretty clear that while some like ivory, you really do not, which is fine. Color choice is a very individual thing. If you buy this car, you will own the...
  4. The "I drove the 107 today!" thread.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Nice pics Neelyrc, and bigsky. bigsky, 22k is a lot of shrimp. They'd love you in New Orleans. Best of luck with your new venture! Neelyrc, welcome back home. Glad you got your 107 out for some top down driving. There's nothing like it. I'll be out again next chance I get. Cold doesn't bother...
  5. What's now over your head when driving your 107?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Oh. That's not good. The roads will still be there once you're squared away though. Looking at the pics of your home site, I'll bet that the roads, and scenery are spectacular in the area that you'll be in.
  6. What's now over your head when driving your 107?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Just think, next spring when the Pig comes out of hibernation you'll be retired! The hibernation clock is ticking for me (rain turning to snow showers this afternoon), so I'm trying to squeeze in every bit of top down driving that I can no matter what the temperature is.
  7. What's now over your head when driving your 107?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    The top is still down. It's nice to be out in the crisp fresh air.
  8. The "I drove the 107 today!" thread.

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Today was a nice crisp day, and I had just test driven an old rusted, non-running garden tractor that I have been bringing back from the dead for the first time so I thought what better way to celebrate than to take the Benz out for a ride. Forecast mixed precipitation this coming Tuesday was...
  9. Can't get my soft top up, it's half inch too short??

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    This is also exactly what I do.
  10. You Won't See This Everyday.......If Ever!

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Very nice! The color, and pentas still stand out for me too. It's pretty neat that our 107s as look good whether they are wearing their hard tops, soft tops, or no tops.
  11. Remove the heads '83 380

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Since you're going to sleeve your cylinder, would one of the "0" ebay pistons be an option (less, if any boring of the sleeve needed than for a +1 piston) or would matching the other +1 pistons be the better option in terms uniformity?
  12. Mercedes 560SL 1989 High rev idle [PROBLEM]

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    You may want to check that the small wire which attaches to the positive side of the battery along with the main cable is firmly attached. That wire supplies power directly to the idle control computer. A detached, loose, or bad connection will result in a high idle. This happened to me once...
  13. Remove the heads '83 380

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    A long shot for sure, but this ad has been up on the MB club of America classifieds. He could happen to have a NOS piston on hand. https://www.mbca.org/classified-ad/mercedes-benz-shop-closed Also, I just came across these "0" stamped pistons on ebay. Looks like $75 ea...
  14. How to remove rear view mirror?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I also pulled my mirror rearward at a slightly downward angle using two hands. The spring loaded latches are at the rear of the mount and extend out from the right, and left sides. Grab the mount tightly as close to the base as you can and pull firmly. It should pop out. Applying gradual...
  15. New Mancave Coming....attached to a new house

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    That's some nice land. I like the rock with the outcrop. Seeing that sunrise will be a good way to start the day.
  16. OT - Why do power boats have steering on RH side?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Good to know. I'll keep my waders ready for your next post.
  17. The Cracked PIG

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Sorry, nobby. I guess it was original too. I was going to say that maybe someone here knows of a parts car with a good windshield, but Fonzi beat me to it. He could also be on to something regarding SafeLite. Worth checking into anyway.
  18. Remove the heads '83 380

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    I had noticed some scoring on the cam lobes too, more on one than the others. Likely #6. The blackened #6 cylinder wall tells me that there was a good deal of blow by. I wonder if piston slap may have been the clanking you've been hearing.
  19. Remove the heads '83 380

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Good to see that everything worked out for you. Perfect time to replace the engine mounts. The two small bolts are a PITA with the engine in.
  20. What are These Fender Lights?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Good catch. Interesting too. I know that repeaters are required in GB. Today they are mounted on the front fenders ahead of the A pillar. Could these have been early versions for the GB market? I enlarged your pic to see if they were right side drive, but couldn't.
