    '79 350SL V8; Which fuses in which holders?

    Thanks for that Druk, much appreciated. I have a wiring diagram in a haynes manual and the SL Shop are emailing me detailed instructions as to which fuses to use where. When I've got them installed, I will post a photo to assist anyone else with this problem. Cheers!

    SL meets/Autojumble; any coming up soon?

    Hi folks, just wondering if there is any such thing as an autojumble type thing happening any time soon? My '79 350SL restoration project means I need more parts than an out of work actor and sourcing some of them is proving to be a bit difficult to say the least. :( Any advice much...

    Hello again, more brain picking I'm afraid. Never owned one before but now my partner and I have a 1979 350SL undergoing slow restoration, not for profit, but just because my Uncle and her Dad had 350SL's when they were new, and we've both lusted after one ever since. Work done so far includes...
