Oh I forgot to mention that car is a W126 280SE with (prob) a high compression M110. I think it does have EGR but Iíll confirm next week.

A drive day would be great but I wonít be able to make it until this time next year... Unless I get a car registered & drive up! Hopefully Dora wonít be far off that!!

What does Dora need to get registered? Must be close if it was able to do the 6.9 drive day a few months back?

Not too much but enough to slow progress....

Change coolant,
Rebuild front brake calipers,
Replace RH tail light,
Replace LF hydro hose,
Replace leads, cap, rotor,
Replace front doors (maybe),
RWC (hopefully nothing major),
Club rego,
GO....

But are Vic Club permits valid in NSW??

I read somewhere (a few years ago, and can't remember the source) that it is only WA that does not reciprocate with the club plates schemes. I have seen Vic club permit cars being driven up for events and not heard any issues. we have a logbook scheme now so I would imagine police would be used to checking the logbook if the car is on club plates.

The coloured centre section, accentuated by the chromed (polished) outer rim is certainly different to what one would normally find with standard painted Bundts. I certainly think that your aim in achieving the finish as illustrated is absolutely fantastic to look at.

Mark, I would say go for it. Regards. Styria

N.B. I'd like to think that one can be different from standard when slightly modifying your car. Hence, the two tone paint scheme on Gleaming Beauty and the 18" Speedy wheels I have fitted. I also have standard size chromed Bundts that I could fit if I wanted to.

The Barock/Baroque wheel is hugely underrated & can benefit from a spruce up from its rather bland standard appearance. Itís jusy a shame tyre choices are very limited but the 15Ē versions are a bit better.
