      Can't find it now, but I was looking for a photo I took at the Phoenix Park races in '09. There was a really cool 242 there. I'll dig again later...

          Interesting! but the enormous watermark on images makes them unwatchable. Could you post the rest somewhere else ? www.imgur.com perhaps ?
          Any car that merely takes you from A-B does not go far enough.

                        More testing of the electrical system, the lights and indicators, wipers, fan and all interior bits do work which is grand. The Engine wiring harness is shagged so can't really progress without one of those.

                        A few pics of the underside from the past owner came through:

                          when a nice set of mesh alloys in 5x112 pattern show up ( that'll fit the benz) for $150 it'd be rude not to , I'll need adapters but they look good !

                                drivers is totally borked, passengers side only has split seams on the base so may be useful for some other person I guess???
