    Taking a risk

    I'm sure there'll be some questions asked if the water gets any higher. Could be looked upon as good advertising though as the pic does the rounds online.

    W210 Rust [at the risk of being boring]

    Just cleaned the green hearse and on close inspection, can see that the 3 of 4 wheel arches - with a strong suspicion about the 4th - have succumbed to the dreaded rot on the inside lip.
