    Hello to you chaps.

    Im Ben, im 23 and I have a 1992 Mercedes SL500, unfortunately it seems that has some aggravating electrical problems!

    However in the meantime I shall busy myself with searching the forum for the answers to my questions before I post up my woes - Im sure someone has the same problems

    Anyway Hi to all, look forward to finding some new things out :)

    Thankyou :) she is very clean but doesnt get used as much as id like - thats the thing with the 5.0 v8 the noise is addictive but the fuel prices aren't - the electrical problems are starting to niggle me somewhat too - from what im reading though, they arent without electrical problems, the more you have on a car though, the more there is to go wrong I suppose...

    Hi Bill - Yours looks a good bit newer than mine :) Need some AMG wheels definitely.

    First things first, I need to find a decent upholsterer to repair the cloudy hood windows and the split edges. I read that this is a common problem?

    Whereabouts are you? There are a couple of places 'down South' that members have given good reports of ... one near Chessington and another near Woking.

    Mine has got a little crack each side of the main plastic rear screen (on the fold line) so I'll be getting it done at some point. Been like it a couple of years now without getting significantly worse though, so not top priority!

    PS ... if your car is a '92 then it's actually a 500SL! The format of the name changed to "SL500" in 1994.

    Im in the midlands :) Not too far from birmingham

    And oops about the model! :( SL500 rolls of the tongue so much easier than 500SL :)

    Though, I stand corrected!

    There are some past threads here on R129 hood repair/replacement ... try a few searches as it sounds like you're a fair way from the places I know about. Good luck!
