I would love to take you up on your offer and get my hands on these photos you are in the process of shooting.
You might remember, I have an 87 300SE myself - so these photos will be put to good use sometime (I hope not too soon..). Like others on this forum I learn from the "photographed articles" the most.
Actually after studying Thomaspin's great photo files, my plan for tomorrow morning is to go after the front rotors and brake pads and replace them.I've done the pads before but it took a couple passes on the photos - to be ready for the bearings...
good luck with the Cylinder Head.
