That would be me, I take time to ship things on occasion and accidents happen. If you have problems with something I have done please contact me.

I knew I knew it. Hey Andrew do you have a brake booster and an axle for my 79 280sl?

You knew what?

Are you just looking for the half shafts? I have a 560 Booster.

I may be picking up a euro 84 500SL with tri y's and all that good stuff in the next month or so. But the tri ys will be staying. I will have a booster definitely for you then.

Or do you need a drive shaft?

Half shaft, I found one from a bone yard but I'd rather buy from you. "I knew" meant I knew the 107 store but could't place it.

Dangit, I couldn't ever figure out how to get them off the 280 diff, they weren't bolt ons like the 560. Do you want to upgrade to a 560 rear end?

Does anyone want some more shocking news? It may explain my slowness in shipping stuff and what not.

No don't want to upgrade to a 560, I'll figure something out. It's beginning to make some noise. I hope your shocking news isn't bad.

I don't know it depends on how you look at it, I have been covering it up for a year or so now.

I am 17, I started selling the parts when I was 15 and my SL came when I was 14.

Surprise, it may not be that big of a deal, It is rather amusing when I have had a few people pick up parts and have a deer in the headlights look. When I first started parting I sold a set of seats and he drove all the way from Indiana, greatest look I have ever seen on someones face. I should have gotten a picture.

My friends always stated until I put euro spec bumpers and headlights on with the AMG ground effects that I bought an old mans car. I think not.

You will find that age is not as important as professional demeanor and responsible behavior. While maturity is usually proportional with age, it certainly is not axiomatic.

Trust is earned, and reputations can be shot down fairly easily. Communication is key to successful endeavors when dealing with the public, especially in the electronic realm where word of mouth can spread faster than tabloid rumors. This is especially true in this "... I read it on the internet so it has to be correct..." information-overload environment.

Good for you. My 16 year old parted a 300D and sold off the parts when he was 15.

I bought stuff from you before and would again. Great way to generate some cash as a teenager.

PM me if you find any of these parts - They are on my like to have, but not essential spares list ;)

- D-Jet ECU 0280002005
- harness that goes from ECU to the injectors (in good condition).
- fuel pressure regulator
- fuel pump relay
- Rear cover off a later year diff.

These would only be back up spares for our '72 350SL, so no fancy prices :)

It was an 84' but it was stripped down to the uni-body. If it hasn't been sold I have it.

Why (does it explain slowness)?
