Hi Michel, just wasn't sure regarding your requirements in that regard. If you would like me to organize a spoiler, and if you would like it for the Show and Shine, let me know asap. It takes about a week to have one made up, so there is still enough time. Whilst I am at it, is there anyone else that would like to fit an AMG spoiler to their car ? Regards, Styria

I don't know if it matters....but the new ones are stainless whereas the older ones where, I believe brass then chrome plated.

This is the same story as the hubcaps, genuine 70's MB hubcaps were chrome over brass, now days they are stainless steel.

I don't know visually if there is any differences.

I am not too fussed... I'll consider aftermarket stuff.
My car is modified and as such I don't worry too much about originality of the parts I use, as long as they are of decent quality.

Unless you do a side-by-side comparison there is little difference. It's only when directly comparing them that the superior quality of the plated brass ones shows up noticeably.

Hub caps in brass? Never seen 'em - but among my '50s, '60s, and '70s Benzes I have a mix of plated mild steel and polished stainless. There's a distinct difference in sound when blasted with the garden hose: the mild steel sounds solid and rather muffled; the stainless sounds tinny and loud.

Hi Michel, I'll get that organizewd for you within the next two days - meaning by Friday - anyone else ?

Hmmm.... those wheels - whatever happened to them ? I take it that the guy must have sold them. So, instead of road wheels, how about a nice and fancy leather cum burr walnut steering wheel in the correct 116 size - they are very nice to look at and lovely to the touch. Can I tempt you Michel ? Regards, Styria (with a couple of reds under belly - el cheapo, but very mellow and tastes great).

It is very tempting...

I still aim to have that timber and leather steering wheel as well as the 19" chrome wheels..

It's a matter of allocating funds....

What's money - it is just a matter of shuffling it around. Regarding wheel arch moulds. Obviously, as already related, two types available. Personally, I much prefer the chrome on brass units as they do have a better shine and are not nearly as prone to scratching as the stainless units. Not sure of availability on an every day basis, but I can get them for about $260.00 for the set.

Regarding your steering wheel - do you know if Andrew still wants your Italvolanti unit ? You may have forgotten, but Jammer promised you a steering wheel which was part of the ebay lot that he purchased from Crayford. He wants me to pass on that wheel to you, but you need to know that, at best, it can be changed to the burr walnut/leather rimmed wheel. Other than that, you would not want to put it on your car. Over to you. Regards, Styria
