      My next project for the Benz: retrofit the 61-64 tails with the chrome fin trim pieces. I have to remove the top trim piece as seen here (pre-facelift didn't have it) and the bottom trim pieces...

      Yup!! Well I used a razor blade to poke holes to poke the studs through and then cleaned up with the razor. I didn't clean up the outside edge but the inner barrel is flawless!

      Only noticed it because my buddy was setting the electric choke while we were at a 3 day Datsun show and the guy camped next to us noticed my carb was rocking. I checked, moved it back and forth...

      Haven't updated in awhile. So here's what's new:

      Ended up not being a worthwhile investment. I ended up swapping a .72 TDI 5th gear into my EGT (2.0) trans last June.

      DUDE for real?!

      I have seen two W110's on the road in Salem. One is my friend Hardtail Steve who I convinced to come to town for a car show I helped put on, and a white 200D automatic that broke...

      Big changes happened

      The Benz is now a permanent resident at my home and no longer will be housed at my parents'. This means more time to tinker on it without needing to put on pants. [emoji23]

      $206 worth of much needed and wanted parts. The real score was the radio delete and trunk lid badge!

      Talked to a guy today who is apparently just parts out old Benzes all day. I have a 190 gas trunk lid badge on hold and he was pretty sure he has all the bits and pieces I'll need for the 63 shell...

      ISO: Mk4 1.8T 02J-EHA trans

      Specifically this trans because of the gear ratios.

      Last June I dropped a bunch of labor and parts dollars into a clutch and TDI 5th on my 02J EGT 2.0 trans. Few months later it developed what I...

      Absolutely! I'm glad you found my thread. Not too many people are off camming 2.0 mk4 motors but instead swap for VR or 1.8T.

      I do have one from the existing body. Missing from the new one. I'll sell it to you cheap when I decide what I'm going to do with that speaker spot (ideally air gauges and air tank in a wood housing)
