Forgot about these...
I have two R129 hardtop stands but no R129, so they must go. One is an Inka stand just like the ones on Ebay (I can't seem to get a link uploaded I'm afraid)
which I only used for about a month, then dismantled and put back in the box.
The other one is almost...
These are cool.
We've all experience the problem where you put your trolley jack on the jacking point, lift the corner, then what? Where to put the axle stand? There's no other jacking point nearby.
These stands go over your trolley jack, and you lift the car, then slot the pins in place...

Sorry there is only 8 hours left to bid.
Silly question time, I had a look under a CLS today, I could see each of the 4 jacking points, I think I'd get a jack pad to lift it up. But it was not obvious where the axel stand points were?
Does anyone have any photos or description of where I put axel stands, on a W219?
Does anyone know the best position to place Axle Stands when lifting the front of the car? One site describes placing them under the front chassis for the W210, is the approach for the C209 the same? Is there any way to identify the most appropriate place to position them on each side?

Both should not be on the road, the old boy in the S class can't even reverse. I'm not sure if there is a right of way sign either end of the tunnel but the s class looks in complete shadow and nearly...
does anyone have a visual from underneath of where to use a hydraulic jack for lifting and where to position axle stands on the car.
Even better if there is a central lifting point to get the whole front/back in the air at the same time?
Many thanks in advance.
I need a hardtop stand for my soon-to-be-collected R129. I am minded to buy an Inka item off t' Bay of cheap and cheerful. Can anyone endorse this maker's kit as satisfactory (or not), or recommend any particular make/type I should look at as well/instead.
OOOOH, I'm so excited...
As per title, have the pleasure of going to Silverstone Saturday and Sunday. General Admission tickets, so wondering where the best place to stand / sit is to see the action?
Also any advice on what to take would be useful too (i.e. is it worth taking a camping chair, rug, piece of plastic...
I've recently purchased an SL (R107 chassis) and wanted to get a hardtop stand for the garage. Its a rented space so cannot get the ceiling hoist.
Any reccomendations? I've seen the one at the SL shop for £150, but I've seen the one on eBay from "UK Custom Covers" which is around £90...

Hi, I know that you jack on the rubber mounts, however for the 4x wheel refurb, it needs to be dropped onto axle stands, therefore can't use the rubber jack points as the jack will be on them to lift it, where can one use axle stands on these cars safety please?
A short while ago, the sills on my ML filled up with water which overflowed into the battery dept corroding a SAM. The SAM was replaced with MB giving 36% discount on parts and labour as a goodwill gesture. Afterwards the passenger's side mirror stopped dipping when reverse was engaged. I...
Just washed my car - starting with the wheels. Utterly filthy, black with dust, mud, poo, you name it. Cleaned the spilt veg oil off with Simoniz Alloy Cleaner (black bottle - seems to be an end of line product). OK so far?
Yeah - so I tried it on the spilt oil around the filler cap. Wow -...
