Re: Dora 2

It’ll be interesting to try this out! No permanent mods to be made & completely reversible.... No FD internal hump, no bridge, no internal grille, no concave lid.

Re: Mercedes V8 Inlet Manifolds

I now have sources for EFI & ECU equipment. The only think left is the coils & where to mount them. Hopefully the engine will be more economical with more power through more accurate fuel delivery &...

Re: Dora 2

Oh that's inches of Hg not mm.... I'm keen to replace the half shafts and book in for a RWC. Hopefully they won't look too hard at the rear ball joint boots but if they have to be replaced at least...

Re: The end of the 6.9 road :-(

Oh good luck with the sale! I really hope the sale prices are similar to the advertised prices which will indicate things are looking better for these classics.

I guess we all have to move on eventually. If they no longer provide enjoyment, you have yo ask yourself why keep it? As long as you have love, happiness and a sense of purpose in your life that's...

Re: 6.3 or 6.9 Barocks/Bundts?

Yes the wheels were found on a damaged 450SEL. And they have the alloy hub centers too.

Re: 6.3 or 6.9 Barocks/Bundts?

Don't get me wrong, I love the 6.9 just some of the features that were standard on the model don't add up. It must've been quite a different era back then when owners liked to hide among the masses....

Re: 6.3 or 6.9 Barocks/Bundts?

Hmmm sounds odd. So the 6.9 had 215 tyres & the 450s had 205s on the same width wheel?? If true they really didnít make the 6.9 different enough to justify the huge price hike!

Re: Commodore

They should’ve retired the Commodore name with the VF. No way is a proud Aussie going to buy the current model with its ugly design & FWD. Other manufacturers are offering a far better product....

Re: Polished W126 Wheels

No not mine & they may have been machine skimmed (diamond cut) instead of polished. Not sure at this point.
