    Re: Club starter

    Jim, thanks! The 190SL season is starting here in the Netherlands so I need to get this one fixed.

    If you say 'very early cars' that is the '55 and '56 but not the (end) '57 car, right?

    Leif,

    My SL was built in late '57 but eventually first sold only in '59. This was all factory installed but maybe it explains the black versus chrome in my kit. Swap from importer or dealer?
