Wiring funny business

No wonder why I was blowing the occasional fuse and why the previous owner installed 25 amp fuses thoughout, I located this mess of burnt wire in the driver side rear quarter panel, it was fused to the metal on the inside of the fender. No wonder the brake lights didn't work. The runnig lights actually DID work!

Suspension monkey business

I will let my daughter explain exactly what we did to the front of her 128 SL coupe, the bottom line is the handling is much improved and so is the ride height.
