    Sad news: our Hotrodder

    Evening chaps, some sad news I'm afraid. After spending time on other forums the past few months, I'm sad to say that I found out that member Hotrodder passed away, 3 years ago.

    Rebuilding a $500 Porsche 911 in your backyard

    Ingenious use of wood there, nice one! Not sure I buy into the '$500' ? Any yard would extract the max value out of its exotic spoils, so off to a Specialist?

    Very watchable vids, good find! I'll watch out for his rear arch refurb. I'd have dialled in the (very good) R-Tech MIG on the bench first, mind. For much nicer beads. I wouldn't be grinding them flush for the 'invisible look' on the underside.

    W210 boot locked and won't open

    I'd keep at it with un-seizing the mechanical lock. You'll need it to work properly sometime hence.

    Bleeding SLS on w123 estate

    They're filled with Nitrogen and they leak when the rubber diaphragm perishes. This turns the SLS fluid 'frothy' and the main reservoir level drops as the fluid fills up the space in the spheres. Only solution is to buy new ones.

    Battered W124 260E/300E Sportline 5-speed - purchasing advice

    Welcome! That's a parts car, IMO. It's way to rough to warrant a restoration project, unless it was an E500. HTH.
