Hey gang. My name is Ron. I just purchased a 1998 SLK 230. Some work needed no doubt. Already replaced motor mounts, and tranny mount. Next on the list is the hydraulic pump for the drop top. Then some interior work. Love the car!! Tinkering is what us retired guys do, right? Anyway Thanks much for letting me join the group. I am somewhat mechanically inclined having restored a 1980 MGB to about 80% so far. Concentrating on this new car for now.
