more. including the damaged filter ear, and my attempted repair using JB weld, and JB stick... we'll see if it holds before I change the can out.

and finally, the flames...
also a shot of the windshield, I've never seen someone put tint that low on it. otherwise, the tinting was very well done, no lines or bubbles.

wow.....

thats a gem. Looks like it took some skill to execute that sectional vinyl covering idea. I wonder how long ago this was done? looks very old.

The blue carbon fiber is an atrocity, and have to seen what the 60 sheet metal screw solution to the passenger well is hiding? Looks to me like the interior ruining was done by a different person than the exterior, and looks a different age to me, what do you think?

Im going to love watching what you discover under the vinyl and other crapola!

The PETM (People for the Ethical Treatment of Mercedes) called. They want their car back.

Seriously, look at the top of the fuel filter, they used white silicone in place of the proper crush washer.

I didn't notice the screws run in everywhere. It would be a miracle if no lines or wires were punctured with one of those screws.

Yuck.
