No photo shopping done to this. Mine is the 300SEL (Zeppelin) and the other is a 560SEL (OTOPRUV) aka zero to proove.

Enjoy.

Ronal R9's....one of the sets of wheels I wanted for a 190E I had ages ago.
2013 E220 CDI (Obsidian Black/Black Leather) Comfort Package & 17's
Seems to be the recuring theme of E-Class.
2014 C250 AMG (Brilliant Blue/Grey Leather) Full House with 19's
2003 ML270 CDi (Alabaster White/Grey Leather) Lux pack
3 works well enough......Untill a Thistle W126 SEL comes along.

Some photos of my "new" W126 -complete with the Terratrip for the recent Alpine Classic Rally 2009. Tidy unit -just 200k and still blue underneath. And of course not to forget my real pride and joy the 220S at a recent track day at Oran Park.

Having seen Steve's 300SEL for the first time at the Alpine Classic, I can state that it is a very clean, tidy and original example (except for the chrome wheel arches which Steve has already learned are a pet hate of mine :P ). You only need look at how clean it is in the engine bay to realise how good this 126 is. The old 220S was great at Oran Park. For those who missed it, there's a link to Steve's in-car video at viewtopic.php?f=13&t=8685#p55076

The newer springs were fitted recently. For those that have dislike for chrome wheel arch moulds, you know who you are, look away now.

I finally received my W124, slighly smaller steering wheel, and I installed it on Saturday. I'll post the pictures and the expalain my one man procedure and the tools I used. Just got to find the time to get the camera out. Someone will get a chuckle out of this.

Found a couple of minutes for photos today so long promised SEC and those with a sharp eye will see the front spoiler is on now and the ex shane Pentas which I reckon really set it off. And also the new 560 SEL. You will notice the rear guard swipe that will be fixed and the door panels have peeled off paint in places also front bumper. I think I will get all those done in 2 pac with the flex agent in it (so it doesn't stone chip) like the SEC spoiler I had done. Also a slight dent in the bonnet is visible but apart from that it cleaned up pretty good I think. I was thinking of fitting the 16 x 8 hammers visible in the early SEC shots when I picked it up, body kit maybe.... but right now it looks just right as is to me!

Here's my 1985 380

It's changed a bit while I've had it and I'm currently fitting a second generation body kit that I've cobbled together from around the place. I'm not sure what colour I want it just yet, either the two-tone light blue (as the front and rear bar are now) or grey.

I've also stripped the K-Jet and in the final stages of tuning MegaSquirt, and it runs well, no more hot starting problems - although I'm constantly refining it. Next is setting up the ECU contro
