Hi guys,

Posted this on Benz-world where the is a forum for the 190. Not much activity though.

I need to get back to the seller tomorrow so any opinion is appreciated.

You might have already mentioned it, but aside from the pics, what did the seller have in the way of books and recorded?

I posted a response on that site. To much rust for my likings. The location at extent of it tells me that this car was poorly cared for.

Thanks again to both of you.

I am still in doubt about it. The car has 90k kms on it and travveled most of them during its first 3 years. Apart from the rear wells it looks pretty nice.

New rear wells are not too expensive, but I am not handy with a welder. I only know how to drop engines and fix little things on 911s.

My concern is in the second picture in your first post. The sheet metal looks like it has a significant gap between it and the plastic flare. Just does not look right. Mine does not have that.
