    Hi folks, just wondering if there is any such thing as an autojumble type thing happening any time soon? My '79 350SL restoration project means I need more parts than an out of work actor and sourcing some of them is proving to be a bit difficult to say the least. :(
    Any advice much appreciated.
    Thanks very much.

    I attend lots of classic shows where there are auto jumbles. Very few of them have anything of use to an R107. The place to go for used 107 spares is the annual Technoclassica show at Essen held in April. A bit of a leap.

    However there are a few UK specialist breakers who supply 107 parts. What is it you're needing?

    Thanks Druk. Well, the list is comprehensive, but in the near future I will be needing 2 front wings, 2 headlamp "buckets", rear offside bumper chrome, a windscreen green tint, a complete set of lenses for all the lights both o/s and n/s, and possibly 2 new door locks with key, as the single key that came with the car opens the boot and operates the ignition but wont lock the doors which were unlocked when we picked the car up and had been so since the previous guy bought it two years back. I'm thinking they may be seized but not sure about that yet - is that a common problem do you know and if so is it easy to free them up?

    PS, I'm in Bristol - do you know of any specialist breakers in striking distance perhaps?

    Just found a link on here to Hadrians Panels who have the two wings in Stock - and little did I know, the so called "buckets" appear to be part of the wing structure! Happy days!
