I am thinking of recommisioning my W124 300D and was hoping to find a good independent in the Aberdeenshire area. The car has been in storage for a couple of years so will need a bit of TLC but hopefully nothing drastic.
A COUPLE OF REMARKS-- your car is so old that many busy Mercedes specialist workshops may no longer be totally familiar with the model but---- their lack of electronics means many competant small local " all make "garages can take on the job also - here local word of mouth recommendations are your friend -so ask around. inputing classic car restorations aberdeenshire yielded this among others
Retro Restoration are classic car restorers based in Kintore, Aberdeen specialising in car restoration for classic cars, racing cars and vintage car restoration throughout Aberdeenshire, Scotland and the UK
Your problem at the moment is that many garages are closed
If looking at bona -fide restorer as opposed to merely a servicing outlet be aware many necessarily operate an "open wallet " approach to budget! quality costs!
Not in Aberdeenshire , but Merparts in Port Glasgow work on everything from 1950s classics to current models , and are very good - both Paul and Stef are MB master techs - the highest level - they are the only people I trust to work on my cars , for things I can't do myself .
I know a trek from Aberdeenshire , but they are very good .
