I don't think everyone keeps their 190 so clean though :p

In 2 years, I spent on a rad, water pump and GR2s with H&R springs, engine mounts and 2 sets of discs and brake pads (they rusted out) oh, and a hood lock.
Mine isn't in the greatest of shapes though but yeah.

With all the work you've put in yours, it shouldn't have any problem for a while now. No?

hehe 190's look too good to let them get dirty :D

But yeah mechanically all i have left is to change the gear selector seals and the car will be in tip top shape.

What will follow is bodyshop work. I've just recently noticed some rust forming behind the cladding on my driver door :crybaby2: so that will need to be fixed ASAP, and i'm guessing while i do that i might as well remove all the cladding and grind of any other rust spots that may be invisible right now.

..fresh coat of paint (199 Blue-Black), new schatz grill frame with OEM inserts painted black and that will be it for this car!


Once these last items are done... i've always wanted a 560SEC :D

It would be a nice change from my 109bhp 1.8 litre hehe.
