L.A weekend trip. Parts or labor requests.

Hey guys!

Im going to SoCal to visit my girlfriend's brother and check out his w124 diesel we got him a few years ago.

Any who im going to meet up with some w123 people and thought id post my services while im down there in the main thread.

I will have all my tools with me and can bring parts if I have them and people ask before I leave friday afternoon/evening.

I have many weird parts and too many to list so better to just ask. Also I do have the MB ball joint press and spring compressor so those are also options if you need that kind of thing done.

You can always contact me via pm or email/phone. (mercedesdieselkraut@gmail.com)


Also for distance calculations ill be staying in Culver City.


BTW I will have my 1983 euro 300TD turbo wagon that is in DESPERATE need of a repaint in champagne metallic.

Now for those of you who are like me and get bored without pictures here is my baby getting ready to be finished in the paint booth, after WAY too long of a waiting spell (dont ask).

1985 euro 300TD turbo (mentor's old car)

Will you be doing some 'wreckin yardi'n while you are down here? If so, many of the yards are having sales (50% off). There is a great Ecology (import only) yard in Fontana (a bit of a drive from L.A., but could be worth it) that always has lots of great 'Benzs to pick from.

That wagon is going to be real Purdy when you get her all dolled up.

Iam not even going to ask how you got that 617 in there. you are a lot stronger that you look.

Have a safe trip south.

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
