    Looks like an interesting project but an early W202 is worth very little and you will need to keep your spending to an absolute minimum.

    The only one hurt in the accident was the car so what did the insurance company categorise her as and was she badly out of line when you had her on the jig ?

    Well it's nice to know that she wasn't just broken for parts as that's what I thought was going to happen to her.
