    Folks. Thanks for all the posts. Just wanted to thank all for the very generous donations for the Marie Curie charity who looked after Derek in his final days. He was very appreciative of the service and would be so proud to hear that his collection for them has raised £1350. Mum will be sending...

    Hello all. This is Stewart, Derek's stepson. Sadly, I have to let you know that Derek passed away last night just before 11pm. Derek knew he was dying some weeks ago and as part of his final arrangements asked me to come on here and let everyone know how much he and my mum Bette have appreciated...

    My slow going 300SEL 6.3 restoration

    Honestly don’t know where it would be on that car but certainly later trannies have it on the side of the box where the selector lever enters. .

    My slow going 300SEL 6.3 restoration

    The likely reason the key won’t turn the starter is that the trannie inhibitor switch isn’t connected.

    W211 door sill

    Surprised at them splitting a bag. Usually they sell them in packets of as many as the car has fitted ( and that can be 30 or more). Still, 3 totty wee bits of plastic for £4.30 sounds like a real bargain..........not. .

    Discovered they had just installed a Jacuzzi disabled bath system so decided quite late last night to avail myself of this fine facility. Strange plastic thing with a fold-down side which looks strangely like one of those old fashioned wicker bath chairs. So you strip off, naked as a jaybird...

    Reasons to be cheerful

    Druk’s Manuka is part of a skin patch which is applied to the outside of an obvious surface lesion to try and increase the anti-biotic effect on said lesion and thereby ease some of the pain. Seems to work very well and I suspect it’s quite expensive treatment which is why I had to find myself...

    Don’t talk such rubbish Ant. I’ve told you Admin isn’t going to delete your thread simply because it can see nothing wrong with it. Carry on McDuff............

    112 BREATHER COVER SCREWS

    Some crap grades of stainless are magnetic (it all depends on the level of chromium content aiui) although in this case it’s more likely they are simply zinc plated steel. .

    Sat moping yesterday because they had removed the spare side table I’d purloined to take all my gubbins. Then got a visit from D18 who, btw, makes the most delicious rock buns. Sometime a couple of hours later there was this rumble and he re-appeared with this. Used to be his mums apparently but...

    Rear caliper sticking

    I’ve used Bigg Red for rear calipers on S212 (not AMG). First class service. Recommended. It beggars the question though as to why five year old calipers should become unserviceable through internal corrosion when retracted after a pad change. Who said to me Jags are crappy built?

    TOP GEAR

    First time I’ve watched TG for years. Must say really enjoyed it. I want that Cat engined 6ton tow truck and an electric trail bike, if that really was Matt le Blanc riding that then kudos to him.

    Public warning Darrell. Stop this thinly veiled sarcasm. It’s not becoming to the debate nor this forum in general. Enough. .
