    Polybushes for older Mercs

    My W210 handles excellently on the twisty roads round here thanks to it's new lowered springs and AMG wheels, but it's a bit rattly and clunky over potholes. So I decided to replace the ARB links, and checked out how much suspension bushes would be. Not cheap. Then I checked out strongflex.eu...

    Best Mercs Ever (very subjective)

    A thread about my W210 a couple of weeks back got me thinking about which Mercedes models I think were the best ever, and I've whittled it down to my top 5: W198 300SL - gorgeous looking car, well ahead of it's time with the spaceframe chassis, and gullwing doors too! What's not to like...

    M111 belt tensioner, pulley & shock, almost new! Fits various Mercs

    I have a belt tensioner, pulley and shock to fit Mercs with (I believe but double check) any M111 4 cyl petrol engine. They were fitted to our C180 very shortly before it was scrapped. The tensioner is Litens (they make these for MB), pulley is Gates and the shock SKF. £35 posted. Good...

    Wood varnish 60s Mercs

    My W114 coupe interior wood is lovely Zebrano, but the varnish is flaking off and the finish is very flat. I have seen quite a number of restored Mercedes of this period where the wood is exceptionally polished as per the images below (I think this is too high a gloss and the second is not...
