    Flaky headrests bump from 'Interior' forum!

    I need to recolour and lacquer the rear headrests in my CLK, which I noticed have become flaky.

    Bump starting

    Having started a few diesels by hand this one I can understand. nMNTkPA-GtM But this one I would think is much harder. I guess it is using the mass of the wheels as a flywheel. pT_nnBdLmEw And this one is just different... wVRHsqMVEI4
