    Thanks for all the comments, very useful, it make sense that shorter bolts will be needed, will ask him to get some, otherwise will report back if we do decide to fit them this weekend! Thanks Angus

    Hi All, A rather perculiar question. I have bought a fluid extractor (orignally to extract gearbox oil) - my friend wanted to change coolant in his C180, instead of doing a flush (not mechanically minded and take rather long), could I just extract the coolant and replace with the new coolant...

    Thanks all, When I went to see her, I had to yank the door open, the roof section was twisted, as far as I can see, it would need the chassis to be stretched, new real panels, new boot, new bumper, new sill, new roof section. I actually think £10k was a rather optimistic estimate on the part of...

    280 engine (110) - same in W123 as in 1985 SL ?

    Derek, I am not sure whether a W123 has a thin radiator or not, it think the 280SL has a recirulating coolant system, whereas the W123 has a no loss system
