Yes it was a toss up between Dora & Red Bull but I decided Dora would be quicker to get on the road first. Red Bull has a trans leak as well as strut issues and I knew I wouldn’t have time to R&R all that and probably find other issues I wanted to fix while the box (or engine) was out. Don’t worry, Red Bull is next & I’ll be using Dora’s old struts during the repairs...

DSF strut out.. Easy job unless the inner top bolt seized in the captive nut.

Frustrating when u buy new & mention u don’t want old stock! I guess beggars can’t be choosers. They’ll still be way better than what’s on the car now.

Test fitting wheels that’ll probably be sold to fund some of this project!

Off to the polisher first thing in the morning, then hopefully a full day turning spanners.... I tracked down these guys years ago and was disappointed to find they’d gone. I thought for a while they’d gone out of business, like many others in the industry. After some detective work, I found they’d just moved locations. Finally I get to give them some work and I hope the result will be worth the wait!!! If I’m happy with their services I’ll add them to the recommended list.

Are they the same or different types hence the spacer at the bottom of the PSF?

You have to remove both headlights to replace the front cells...

Turned out rather nice n sparkly!! They’re now working on the exhaust tips, since they won’t be easily removable once fitted.

This exhaust section is off a 500SEL, but is probably the same for 560SEL. Note the balance / crossovers in the kidney muffler section. Obviously left and right banks are not kept separate all the way to the outlets.
