    Ah, and since the 126 uses shocks on all 4 corners (no struts), you should see very little if any ride height changes when changing from old to new.

    One request - post the video like you do and the link as well, for some reason it isn't showing on mobile devices of mine.
    heyyy there mister.
    Thank you a million times for your kind words.I apreaciate them very much
    Well...the girl i have been dating for A YEAR now..is pretty much cool about the whole thing...at least it seems like it." laughs" At first she was like.."its just a car..but its nice"...now it seems that she is a tad more "proud" of beeing around the car..and seeing the enthusiastic attention both the 500e and the 190e 2.5-16 gets at shows...and even on the "street"...so i think she has gotten the point ..that is not all just " playing with cars like a child"..if i can put it that way..But rather there beeing a high factor of enthusiastic "plan" and thought behind it all..But enough babble I do apreaciate your kind words

    oh yeah..you mentioned that thing about the video links before..ill try and remember that next time.

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    well.....here we go
    I ve just been to this big car show..and the last big event of the year.
    It is a car show called "Motorama"..and its arranged by the county Amcar Club,and its held at this big "hockey/ice skating arena..so its a big event.
    A lot of different cars attended...and not just "american cars"...all cars allowed..and for the most part it was "invites" only..where owners of potentional attending cars have been contacted through this season...me included.So both my cars were actually "Wanted" for the show..which is awesome i think
    So the show was held over two days..and a ton of people have been visiting the show..and it was basically a great success.
    So here is the cool thing..... I WON The best 1990 -1999 model car of the show" My 500e did it "again"..and im so humble..proud..surprised ..that i do not have words to describe it.
    So i just wanted to post a ton of pictures from the show..and some of my cars aswell...so hopefully the pictures speaks for themselves I hope you enjoy the pictures

    Pictures are arranged from "sign in session" when dropping of the cars at thursday night..and cleanings session and putting up fence around the cars at friday...and more show pictures from saturday and sunday





















    Show time

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Finally got some pictures of the beautiful new armrest strut/s
    First of all..I just want to thank A777fan soooo much for letting me in on this group buy after it was officially ended THANK YOU
    I did not do a complete how to..as it is very much selfexplanatory...
    But i have to say..i had a hard time getting the top leather cover separated from the top innepart.It seemed like it was glued on...in addition to the clips on the frame/kindof..and to the screws holding it together.
    So a quick walk through in writing.Unscrew all the screws visible.Then use a plasctic prying tool to separate the plastic inners off from the leather outers...Then proceed and take your time.
    Here are some pics of the process..with some obvious work steps missing...so im sorry for that.
















    I also had to fix the "holding hook" for the locking mechanism in the top lid/parts of the armrest.
    It is originally fastened into place by two plastic tabs that are melted shut like a rivet..so its holding down the metal holding hook.These plastic tabs may break after many years of use and abuse..slamming the armrest top hard down when closing it,resulting in a top part not beeing able to stay shut when closing it.
    The way i decided to fix it..was to use two component epoxy glue,and completely glue it to the base..and enclose the metal part with glue..so it will be 100% fixed to the plastic base.
    First clean the area where you are putting the glue.
    Fill up the cavities so the holes are completely covered with glue...
    Degrease the holding hook/metal part,
    Place it accuratly where it is suppsed to be seated..then let it sit for a minute.Continue to fill the surrounding area with the glue..and then let sit.
    Be sure that it is correctly placed,so it will meet up correctly with the locking latch when the armrest is closed.
    Here is the pictures..hopefully the pictures is a nice addition to my not as good explanation of "how to do this"









    Here the armrest is mounted back in the car.Super happy with the result and getting this to work as it was designed.
    Unfortunatly i have only one plastic strap..as the other one is broken..but i do think i have a way of making myself two new straps.I will get back to that at a later point
    Again .thank you so much to A777fan for letting me buy two of these after the group buy was finished!!Greetings.




    Missing one strap...but hopefully my idea of how to make a new one..will be done at some point



    Holding hook finally stuck in where it belongs..so the armrest top stays shut when its supposed to



    Dog is happy with the fix

    Bravo! I replaced my strut and straps last year, and now when I park my car in the garage, I always leave the lid UP! I read somewhere (theory?) that this prolongs the lifespan of the strut because it is not always compressed. BTW, please allow me to share a picture with you:

    Strap heaven!
    Well..it may prolong the life of the strut..but i dont think it is no point in "thinking" it does..i mean.if it lasts 20 years with the lid down..or 25 years with the lid open..i would prefer to have the lid closed and have it lasting only 20 years...that would be fine

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    a little addition to the armrest resto
    I recently got my two plastic straps..and i did a little photo series on "how to replace them"

    I hope the pictures describes what is going on

    Unscrew all the screws on the inside,That leaves you with the outer parts separated from the insides



    How to separate the top outer part from the inside
    After unscrewing the screws..you will have to separate the inner plastic part from the outer leather shell.There are 4 tabs..which has to be "pressed " back so it will release from the inside.Using a screwdriver or at best a plastic wedge to pry it appart.I used a screwdriver which isnt optimal..as it can make some small marks in the leather..but i made it without leaving any marks.
    2 tabs on each side






    slide the plastic straps in place





    mounted.Note the direction of the plastic tabs,pointed out with my finger.





    Mounting the straps through the other part of the inside plastic panel


    Twist the 90degrees..and put them through the hole


    Note the difference between the pins holding the armrest shock.There are two sizes..make sure you put them back where they were before taking it appart.


    Lower the inside plastic carefully down back onto the lower part of the armrest.Make sure the pin on the armrest shock is centered..so it will hit the groove in the bottom part of the armrest


    Done


    Remember there are two screw sizes.The long ones goes into the bottom part of the armrest.The short screws goes into the top part of the armrest







    i hope you liked the pics

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Finally got to sort out some minor details on my 190e
    Been looking around to find myself a set of sunshades for the car..as the ones in the car have been lacking..in terms of broken plastics..and other imperfections
    These usually are quite expensive on the Fleabay..but i found a set.Got them home in the mail..they were not as described.Contacted seller..he sent me two new ones..without no question..and recently received these..and the project could start
    I ended up having to build two perfect sunshades of the 4 ones i had.So the pictures i post here is basically from start to finish



    Missing plastic cover.


    The driver sunshade i had to remove..because the insides of it was rattling when driving the car..and i just couldnt handle the rattle no more


    My selection of parts


    Two different types.The bottom one is from a facelift..as the production date suggests.




    Replacing lightbulbs of course.Only the best is good enough OSRAM




    Cleaning the "reflector" ..was kinda dirty





    Crack in one of the inserts that i intended to use..so that flew out the door.Taking the mirror from this one..and putting this mirror into another plastic insert


    The light lenses are different between facelift and pre faclift sunshades.


    Mirror in poor condition.Scrap


    Removing poor condtion mirror




    Removing good condition mirror,The yellow stuff is the actual glue used from factory




    Putting the good condtion mirror into the good crackfree insert.Using 2k epoxy to glue the mirror back into the insert



    Done.Looks good Was abit "unlucky"..and the 2k creeped out on the outside of the mirror a tiny but..as you can see ...on the bottom edge..so..not completely perfect...I should have used "Hot plastic glue gun" rather..but..next time


    I said LIGHT...and light it is




    The leftovers Hopefully will get to use some of these parts..cause i do not want to throw them away..even though they are kinda useless at this point


    Also..to find the energy to "work on the car"...i went out for a nice drive in my 190e.Cause the winter is here soon..and gotta grap every oportunity to drive when the weather is good I do look kinda grumpy in the first pic here..but inside..im smiling like crazy








    I hope you liked the pics

    And the newest video i have done
    This is a "general" type of video..where i show you the "correct" way of testing for parasitic draw.Especially important to do it this way on newer cars,with alot of Ecu"s and CanBus systems..where you dont want to interupt "their sleep mode"
