And this is what happens when you donít clean up under that battery tray... On the drivers side was a big rats nest which was actually interfering with the throttle linkages!

Mark, those pics are really horrifying - surely it must depress you when you see that sort of rust and the mess the car is in. BTW, this is not criticism - I am merely expressing my sympathy for you. The parts that you have paid for will be (again) sent to you tomorrow or the day after - I forgot to pick the bottom hydraulic ball joints from my factory. I do want to send everything to you in one package.

BTW, what are your plans for this 560SEL - as you know it is very rare having the full hydraulic system, but surely there is a lot of work ahead of you. The 420SEL that you bought off me - could it be a useful tool for you in re-birthing the 560SEL ? Look forward to hearing from you. Regards Styria

Ummm what happened to the pix?? Don't tell me it's Photobucket 2.0!!!

This car is a parts only one anyway so I'm not too concerned. The fuel system will be a donor for my other 560 which is currently on LPG (installed by a PO).

The 420 went on to save several vehicles and the interior will improve the LPG 560 which also has a black interior, but is a little tired in some areas. After a repaint in the original colour the LPG 560 will then become a very nice machine in the colour combo I've always desired (black exterior/black interior). It's an update Euro car also with a 300hp M117.
