Hi all,
Just introducing myself - I own a 2015 SLK250 in Austin Tx.
I bought this car wrecked in the front from a local auto auction and rebuilt the vehicle.
Drives awesome now. Ended up getting a $50K car for $25K after all rebuild expenses. Enjoying the fall weather in Tx with the top down.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Thanks for the welcome. Also thanks for the links. I was actually here to find out more on how to lubricate my roof seals.

Here are some pics of my rebuild.

Welcome from the land of never ending sunshine ... South Africa Great to hear you are building / re-building your car.. I think it is the best way to own one as you almost become intimate with the car... you get to know every nook and cranny, every squeak or bump... I have been busy with mine for the past year and will be busy with her forever I think, as you always find something to look at, replace polish or repair and not to mention the enjoyment of driving her in between..... Good luck!!
