    Well, as my threads mostly have a lack of update-worthy content, I kinda have to make it at least a little more interesting to read...




    For Christ sake,

    I forgot the photo shoot!

    You sure put a lot of effort into it. And LOL at the rust discovery reaction. You could'nt live where I live. That car would be considered in very very solid conditions in terms of rust. There was barely any!

    I know what you mean. When I went to Canada and saw cars with real holes in it! And still driving! I think must have a picture somewhere...

    Finally I got myself a new Mig welder. 150 Amps, and works like a charm.
    Now I don't need to borrow Brolli21's welder anymore






    Some practicing and adjusting:





    Practice all you want, I still suck arse





    Bit the bullet and carried on with filling this nasty gap:




    So we cut a piece out of an old W124 roofpanel that I had laying around of my previous parts car:





    Went full retard





    The boy has skillssssss





    Went full retard again





    Tectyl on the inner guard fucks up the welds a little bit, and the rest is just my lack of skill. I'll admit that





    Then some thick layers of Alu-Zinc spray and lots of body sealer later it came out like this:

















    So there you have it: My messy workshop:













    Oh and I also bought (and immediately sold) a set of original vintage BRABUS Monoblock series 1 wheels.
    Specs: 16x10 ET10 + 16x8 ET15
    Year: 1987 + 1988








    And ofcourse they don't fit. What else would you expect?







    If I only had wide fenders in the rear....









    Oh and another thing:

    I moved to France because I'm 'temporarily' being relocated to help out in the French office in Trappes.


    Really not much going on here tho.....














    Yes. You are correct.
    That IS a NISMO GTR N-Attack Package that we just finished







    Just a regular day @ the office...

    Got myself a vintage Volante Luisi steering wheel for cheap. It just arrived at my home address in Holland, But I'm in France for the rest of the week because of work...

    So that's my excuse for the crappy pics. This is what my moms sent my via Whatsapp. Can't do any better until friday...


    Anyway, I will remove the ugly center, polish the metal, and refinish the wood in a darker color to match my interior.

    Should be good

    Not sure why you sold the Borbets. They would have definitely fit, your car isn't that low in the rear + also the massive tyre gives an illusion it will poke like it did on the picture. If it would have been stretched and the car lower, it would have fit perfectly. I run 17x10 ET20ish in the rear on my W201 with no camber adjustments and no fender rolling/pulling and it pokes just perfectly.

    I have the same wheels in 17" but different brand (RW) And they actually weren't Borbets either. They only said BRABUS.

    16" just seems too small in my eyes for a W124. For a W201 they are perfect though

    Considering the ride height; It still doesn't have the engine mounted, Tank is not full and IT WILL GAIN MORE LOWS. I PROMISE




    To be fully clear: This thread mentions THREE sets of cross-spoke wheels:

    1st: BBS Brabus 16x8 ET30 all around.
    Status: Still in my posession. 2 of 4 are crooked and damaged due to a side collision four years ago. They are currently rotting away in my storage






    2nd: RW Rafala 17x7,5 ET20 + 17x9,5 ET20
    Status: Still in my posession. These will become the main wheels for the car. Waiting for complete overhaul. Straight but some have curb rash damage. Need sanding down and coating/polishing. Still not sure which it will be. Open for suggestions tho...





    3rd: BRABUS (apparently no BBS anymore) 16x8 ET15 + 16x10 ET10
    Status: SOLD. Why? 16" is too small imho, and my RW's look quite similar AND are bigger. So that 1+1=3 was easy for me





    Hope this clears some things up

    Dutch language sounds like a drunk German trying to speak English, while on magic mushroom, eating Belgian waffles.

    And 16" is perfect for an early 80's car like the w123!

    I was mostly talking about the width only though, I prefer 17 on 124's as well. The wheels you plan to put on look neat, just maybe slightly lower tyres and the car itself lower, space the front and it will look great.

    Guys,realy,quit bashing the poor boy, he can't help it, he just isn't faster.
    To be honest, i think if I hadn't kicked his ass multiple times,it would still be collecting more dust and rotting away further, without the chance of ever seeing the road again.

    Ha!

    Guess what?!



    MOAR DISTRACTION INBOUND!



























    18" AEZ 'Zeus' barrels of which I want to replace the butt-ugly centers with some "still-undecided-type-of-OEM-wheel"


    I might go;



    or;



    or in silver;



    of maybe just;





    Last option above would be the most unique ofcourse, but the problem is that those are 17's and I need 16's for the best sizing...

    They don't appear really special to me. A bit bland styling imho.
    But I appreciate the suggestion

    Aaaaaaand that's basically it.

    But since I don't have an S600 L to work on, and the white nugget's engine is dead, You might see a bit more W124 madness in the upcoming weeks
