    Re: Lift

    Another option and one that I am saving up to purchase. I do not have the necessary room in my garage for a 4-post unit. The single post is mobile while still allowing the auto to be raised high...

    Re: Soft Top Pictures

    Re: Best Hub Cap Tool

    Many thanks for sharing this Jim. The lug nut wrench/puller that came with our cars has always frustrated me because it is so easy to cause damage if you are not extremely careful. I have normally...

    Re: Rear view mirror glass replacement

    John,

    Thanks for the “heads up” on PB Blaster. Even though it’s apparently been around since 1957 I had never heard of it before. I grew up using Liquid Wrench and see that PB Blaster has high...

    Re: Delete ashtray altogether?

    My only recommendation to someone making modifications or upgrades is to keep the original parts in a box for a possible future owner. I am in the process of restoring a 1911 Horseless Carriage that...

    Re: Delete ashtray altogether?

    This is a hard one Erik. This is your SL so the bottom line is, do whatever modification you wish to make it pleasing/functional to you. As a long time owner of an SL and purist at that I would not...

    Re: headlight chrome rim- which is OEM?

    Gerry,

    Beautiful rims. That’s what my 1958 had on it originally. Wish I still had them but chrome was shot so I put new ones on them years ago, unfortunately without any markings.

    Bill,

    Many, many thanks for your detailed response. Great outline which I will print and save with the article in the Enthusiast you mentioned for future reference.
  12. Re: Headlight Question - to LED the original euro frames?

    Bill,

    Your Euro lights look beautiful. Would appreciate if you provide details on what was required for the conversion and what Euro lights (manufacture) you used. I still have the “dated” sealed...

    Re: Is this car's owner a club member?

    Gerry,

    That’s great that the organizers selected the SL for their cover photo. The dash on our SL’s are so beautiful. Not sure what the accessory under is under the glovebox. I did notice that the...

    Re: Carbs - Solex PHH 44

    That’s really strange. My tags are E 14584/1 and E 14584/2. The last number designates proper placement of carburetors 1 and 2. My boxes have those two numbers marked on them. Makes no sense why...
