    Yea does look mint and a very nice colour too. If I may make a suggestion get yourself a set of Philips Silver Vision indicator bulbs for those front clear corners o get rid of that fried egg look.

    Looks great.

    That will go forever, so little to go wrong.

    In the days when a radio Casette was a pricey option.

    Enjoy

    Nice looking car, the idle oil pressure looks a little low though.

    nice :)

    Watch that cam chain - that one probably has a simplex one so it's worth changing unless you know when it was last done

    Nice looking car, don't see that many on the roads these days :cool:

    Oil pressure looks a little low, probably just wants an oil and filter change :)

    They do drop slightly at idle, especially on oldeer/higher mileage engines and when hot. Doesn't the MB handbook specify something silly like a minimum of 0.3 bar?!?

    Yes, though I don't think I've ever seen one that low.

    my old M115 engine used to run quite low, it went on for years like that with no issues.. but a later engine such as this should at least hover around the 1 mark at idle...

    maybe just needs a god service.
