So I Did a thing. Bought a Salvage R170.

Hey Guys. So I've always had a love for the small little SLK's. So I just had to jump on the offer of $600 on a 1999 SLK 230 Sport. Its the one on the right . Long Story Short it was hit on the left front and pushed the frame a good Inch and a Half Back. Was lucky enough the spare could be used since i only had about a 5mm between the frame and the spare wheel. With the spare installed I could move the car around (once I removed the left front fender)....even if it made this werid grinding sound . Fast-forward a little and I had it the straightened and it aligned perfectly. I have the bumper and fender ordered and plan to pull the front into place and fit test the new bumper and fender before I paint it. Update on its way when I have time!
