bright sun, and not good whitebalance, tried on the 15″ hubcaps on 16″ steel rims, 7″ wide in the front 8″ wide in the back. Last picture of the vehicle in my possession, sold to someone living nearby so will probably spot it doing burnouts and drifting around corners.

the w123 lang was finished enough, and garagespace needed, so moved 150km to storage, driven, anyhow, thought i could do that on the tires it was standing on, it was bumpy from the start, and about a 1/3 of the ride it was pure hell. luckily had a spare with me, a change and rest […]
The flexdisc of the w123 om606 8mm mynä wasnt to happy, swapped it out for another old used one to keep the car roling, hope that it will keep together for atleast a couple of runs, ought to get the larger flange+flexdisc in place somewhere in the near future, but feels “unnecesary” to build a […]

generation 1 of w114 and w115 with ether/gas filled tempmeter ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— generation 2 of w114 and w115 with electric tempmeter
Huge bangs and clanks from the rear of the car, w123, w115, coming after driving for a couple of minutes, my guess is the grease gets warm, and the driveshaft kan move freely and thus creating the bangs that scared the shit out of me. Video of the loud bangs from the rear of the […]

In the beggining it was just a Gen2 c126 with broken V8 M117.965 engine. It took me some time to find a donor car 1984 300SD. As my 500SEC did not have A/C I have to migrate complete table from donor car below you can se the mess… Not all the parts can be […]
1600rpm in around 100km/h, the speedometer is way of.
Changed the springs from ultra-low oilpan scraping, squatting dog stance, to something more drivable, sadly i dont have any pictures from before they where changed, but only one third of the wheels widht was in the ground at the back, and i feared that every dent in the asfalt could destroy the oilpan while driving […]
om602 turbo, changing injectionpump, timing and procedure, going from stock RS158 to 7.5mm dieselmeken 180CC RS177
bad picture, but thats where the oil to the turbo is taken from the filter, need a pressure regulator so i dont push to much oil to the turbo on higher rpms.
