THRSTY merc

Post by Eski » Sun 13 May, 2018 12:28 am

Hello ozbenz!!

My names Matt and I'm from Perth. About a year ago I bought a w114. At the time everything looked good and seemed to drive amazing. Since then I have been going over the car and well it's turned into a decent sized project.
I love the car to bits and hope to have it back on the road this year some time. At the moment I'm fixing rust in the rocker panels, boot and rear quarters also getting all the calipers rebuilt and freshening up all the suspension

Also by any chance does anyone know how much difference there is between w114 and w124 engine mount locations? As in width apart, Is there similar amount of room in the engine bays?

Ok so over the last month or so I have been getting all the parts I need to get up and going again. I have all the brake calipers back looking like new, all new discs all round. They will be going on this weekend.

Most of the patch panels are done with only the passenger side rocker left. I'm hoping that the paint I have bought to paint will be close-ish. I know it'll be a little off due to age.
I have to get the indicators to hold position again (easy fix)

My spring compressors have finally turned up so if anyone needs to borrow them hit me up.

I love a subtle number plate, one that only a few will actually get. "well played"

Haha thanks, not many actually get it. I get most people thinking it refers to fuel assuming it has a V8 or something
