Private Car Collection

Let me also remind everyone thinking of going that we will be visiting a private car collection that will blow your mind. One car in the collection is the ONLY known surviver of it's kind. There are a couple others that are rare as hens teeth as well. You won't want to miss this rare opportunity (am I allowed to use the word rare that many times?).....Rich

Highly doubtful. Several problems.

(1) tried to source a receiver/dryer locally which turned out to be a URO. So how bad could that be, right? Well they got one of the ports for a switch the wrong size. The new one is a T&C coming in from DFW area.

(2) got a new belt that turned out to be too short, so the belt and pulley contacted the front sway bar. The next size larger was out of stock.

(3) can't charge the system until 1 & 2 are solved.

Pre-game stress.....

So, This last weekend I tried to finish up all the things that would prevent me from taking my moms car to the meet. I got new brakes and axles changed on Saturday. Sunday I got a lot of small things done, numerous trips around the block making sure everything was good to go. Ate Easter dinner then had my sister come over and inspect the car with me, we got the headlights adjusted and a bunch of small stuff you don't event think about. Yesterday, Monday, I had new tires installed, washed the car and cleaned up the interior.
Today I took it to the alignment shop. It pulls slightly to the right and the steering wheel is pointed slightly to the left. I inspected the front end and all the ball joints and tie rods were in great shape, so I sent it off the the shop to get aligned. I got a call back that the bushings on the upper control arms are shot I over looked this. BOOO.
So I got the parts on order from the Pelican. They will be delivered to me on Thursday. That means I have Thursday night to get them installed and Friday morning to get the car aligned. I'll have to take Friday off work, but if all goes well I will be on the road to my friends house in LA on Friday night, and be at the meet Saturday morning.

I'm getting a little worried that I may not make it. If the UPS guy is late, or if the alignment shop gets booked up on Friday, I could be SOL

I need to fix an exhaust leak on my car, other then that I can bring it. I've been so focused on Moms car I've neglected my own. I suppose if something goes wrong with getting my moms car done by Friday, I could fix my car Friday morning and take it down. Ether way its going to be a close call!

Wish me luck. I hope to see you all Saturday. I will keep you posted!

Smile @SirNik84

Nik, I'd hoped to caravan down with you, BUT unfortunately it looks like I can't, cause I'll be leaving the g/f's house with her sometime Thursday in the morning and we will go down via 99 or 5, but first over Highway 88 beginning in the Carson Valley/Minden/Gardnerville area where it intersects with her house.

So we'll miss, but I hope we can touch base and catch up down at the drive.

Got my fingers crossed that you can show up - you and iwrock are my very first Sacramento area Mercedes friends, beginning with the Autumn MB gathering at the Towe Museum back in 2007!

Bring any running Mercedes you have if necessary but I'd honestly love to see the '84 300SD! guessing by now it's got over 400k on the clock - that everlasting car!

Jim, I'll be there. I'm taking Friday off work. I'll ether be at the alignment shop with the mom car, or I'll be fixing the exhaust leak on the SD. ether way, I'll have a car to drive by noon on Friday!

As far as getting to see the SD, and or the Mom Car, both will be at the nor-cal meet on the 31st of May. I haven't made the offical even post yet, we're still ironing out the details on the diesel discussion page.
