    Guess I'll just hang on and wait.. One is bound to turn up in a breakers or eBay.. and maybe.. If I'm feeling flush I'll just buy the brand new one, get the car resprayed with a new one fitted, and I have lots of rust to tidy up was going to get it all done at the same time.

    tell them you're a member of the offical merc club. if you're not then hope they dont ask for your membership number.

    if you're not a member, then let me tell you - its worth joining - you get the discount and get an excellent magazine every month.

    Looks stunning. Definately got some photoshop skills! I've already fixed the park position. Was a new mech at my local Merc indys. That is exactly how I want my car.

    Got amber corners on there now though. Not clears, my clears were miss matched, one with clear, the other way crystal, had different bulbs in, so swapped both back for standard ambers.

    Very impressed though with that above! I shall save it to my desktop and work towards it!

    Thanks very much.

    Work? I've been unemployed for 10 months! You can only apply for jobs and watch daytime TV for so many hours per day.

    Wow that does look amazing good job with the photoshop there Shude.

    Why not get a set of OEM style clear repeaters they look a lot better than the amber repeaters. Im sure you could source them cheaply from a breaker. Just found a set on ebay, look original too:

    I've gone for ambers.. I like the way like look on dark coloured cars. I'll buy some new clears if they are only like £4 though!
