    Well, we know where a good percentage of the world's available E500E spare parts stock has gone and is going! I'm jealous! Great job and can't wait to see it finished.

    NO PRESSURE from me. I was just giving you a hard time I would love to see your car but it would be impossible

    I'm arriving on a cruise ship the Rotterdam and have booked tours with a Russian tour company called Alla Tours. We are there Sunday and Monday and the tours take up the whole two days. No time for visits outside of the touristy stuff. This is my second visit to St. Petersburg what a beautiful city. Anyway I am on a leash with the tour company. I do not have a Russian Visa and cannot leave the tour group. We get off of the ship go thru customs and meet the tour guide and off we go.

    Hopefully some day we will visit Russia and stay for a while on a real visa.

    You still need to get that car done. It should be a real beauty and be 'AS NEW CONDITION' when you are done. I've never seen so many new parts.

    Take Care
    Terry

    No) I had one used set and sold it when I found this new ones!
    I believe that there must be another new set of Brabus door sills. You only need to believe, wait and search)))

    The amount of work and dedication you are putting into your car is totally amazing - you are bound to have one of the finest 124.036 on the planet!

    Great job and can't wait to see your car all finished!

    Re: Almandin 500E long going restoration.

    So, tonight was first test fitting of front brake system.

    This is a 375x35 front rotors in a 19x8.5 Brabus Monoblock V rim.
    Fits perfect. So I am now in a search for 370-375mm front rotors.

    Also ordered a full titanium upgrade for calipers - all screws, bleeders, bolt and piston will be made from titanium. One step towards ultimate brake kit)
