I am sorry, what do you mean by "rear deck"? The actual trunk? I did check that and all the parts on the car are steel - they just did a horrible job painting the trunk.

"Classic" Mid 80's diesels?

I got to thinking about my SDL and how it really was only made for two years. I have no idea how to check, but there just cannot be that many left running around. Does it qualify as a classic?

It was the SL.

Turns out that the strut in the way did move. The bolts were real comfortable where they were. Once I torqued them a bit I was able to loosen the strut.

What exactly is that...

Reasoning behind body style designations?

I have always wondered how Mercedes comes up with the body style/model designations. I don't mean 300E or 300D or whatever, rather the W123, W124, and W126. Why no W125? Why jump from W126 to...
