I have owned several older Mercs (123, 124, 126) and all have suffered with the typical rot. My current 123 is pretty bad. I'm taking it to the US where in my home state there are no safety checks, so you can literally drive just about anything on the road, even if it's rusted out and broken and missing huge bits. I'm just wondering at what point do you throw in the towel and part out/scrap a 123 for rust issues? Has anyone out there taught themselves to weld, so that they might salvage their treasured old car?
