Restoration of my 85 300D

Just noticed this new forum. Thought I would add a link to the rust repair work done on my 300D a few years ago.

Links in original thread to welders site are no longer correct. But this should work:

1985 Mercedes 300D - Last Chance Auto Restore

This is the link to my original thread in Bodywork forum:

http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/body-repair/326615-300d-w123-weld-repair-rusted-chassis-floorpans.html

This year, my main upgrade was on brakes. Replaced front calipers discs and pads, flex hoses all round and solid brake lines at rear.

About to take car in for Fall rust treatment (probably at Krown)

Car is on road and used regularly. Looks and runs great. Happy I spent the time and money to do the restoration. No rust at present, but will do a double check next Spring.

That is a very impressive and inspirational bit work you've done there.
