I hate to say it but you can pay someone to do that for you.

I'll be 55 tomorrow and I'll love it if I can do about 5 alignments. I'll loose a gallon of sweat and feel great after all its only 93 with 90 percent humidity. I'll do AC after work.

Summers are great in north central Florida."

I hope you go over 100 years old and stay on the forum, of course.
Seriously, I am sure 99% of the people of this forum would agreed that this forum would not be the same without you.

Happy Birthday! :p

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE, i turn 50 this year and because of you, my knowledge of Mercedes (cars in general) has increased 100 fold since starting to read this forum last year. Thanks so much for your knowhow and insight. Hope the humidity starts to die down a bit in Sept.

Thank you all!

I didn't get my 5 alignments, only did 4. Did sweat at least a gallon and had a visit from Paul Tabor of German Imports in Thomasville GA. His wife was having recontructive eye surgery at the Uof F teaching hospital. We spent a couple hours playing with toys!

I got to road test a number of finished AC jobs this afternoon. It was so hot I had to drive some of them quite a while to be sure they cooled (bg).

All in all, its been a great birthday.

Steve-

He might be able to pay somebody to do that, but we couldn't pay somebody to do the job you do on this board! The advice you give is worth untold thousands of dollars of saved time and shop-costs for the DIY'ers here on the board. We all owe you one.

Happy Birthday Steve!

I have often searched for your previous postings on various subjects in the archive and learnt a lot. I look forward to many more years of benefitting from the pearls of wisdoms within.
