How To Clean Your Car Seats. Office Building Cleaning Services.
Hand built during 1970 in Stuttgart, Germany this 3.5 litre V8 engined Mercedes 300SEL was a remarkable car in its day. The self levelling air suspension meant that this car handled like a boat, smoothening out all the bumps on the road, but simultaneously making the maneuverability a cautious exercise - the suspension was a delicate mechanism. I always felt during aggressive turns that the body would snap off the chassis if I turned really hard. Not to mention the problem of the huge amount understeering from the wheel.JLT Performance PCV-Pre filter
The engine itself was a powerhouse. Even with the bonnet closed, the 175?C heat would be seething into the cabin. A lady friend of mine burnt her little toe when she unknowingly placed it on a part of the passenger floor. The air conditioning never worked and the car smoked just as much as Dad did. With an automatic gearbox the fastest I ever did with this was about 140km/h on the M2 (don't tell anyone)- I would have loved to take it to about 180km/h+ but never had the guts to do it. I know this car will kill me the moment that I think that it can do what I want it to do. You see this car drives YOU. She decides how fast she wants to go and you simply get in sit down and shut up. But when you get confident and start thinking that your able to take over the driving experience she gets very angry VERY QUICKLY. I've never estimated her ability to punch a hole through a concrete wall, but if I were to estimate, I'd say that I'd still be under-estimating!
The comfort in this car was unreal. We had the leather seats replaced and upholstered with new leather from cows from Santa Monica, California (I don't know why they had to be imported) but the quality was superb. It was like sitting on the world's fastest leather couch.
What attracts me to this car is how the designers incorporated the vertical headlight configuration to the classic Mercedes grill. When I look at other 300SELs on the street and see the singular headlight, I laugh because it looks so ugly- like someone wearing oversized goofy glasses. The vertical configuration looks so sophisticated and elegant. Looking at horizontal head lamps on other cars is so boring and urbane, I'm really glad that Mercedes did the vertical on the 300SEL -it's so pretty.
The proportions of the car, I feel are spot on. Being 20cm longer than the 280 (the 300SEL's poor gimpy cousin) the passenger rear windows are elongated and clear - perfect for a princess to be waving out of at plebs who couldn't afford such classic motoring . The rounded front and rear windows flowed with the cabin shape adding to the aerodynamic profile and aesthetic simplicity.
The doors as well had a lovely supple weight to them - they were heavy and felt strong. They curved also, and made the archytypal door closing sound. I'd learn to appreciate this sound often, because the engine was so unreliable that I'd be getting in and out of it to open the bonnet to figure out what was wrong.
Here, me and my Dad spend an afternoon cleaning the Mercedes, shining and polishing, drying and air blowing to a nice reflective finish.
Currently the head gasket in the engine has eroded and a few other components need fixing, not to mention that the transmission needs to be replaced.
This thing is pretty handy to have if your car has forced induction or if you have a 99-00 mustang v6 with the defective valve cover baffles. Normally oil is drawn into the combustion chambers causing sludge, pinging, or reduced throttle response but this filter is designed to block the oil but allow the gases to still pass through. The oil should then drain back into the valve cover reducing burning of oil. Once the filter has become clogged just soak it in some brake cleaner or seafoam. Too cold to put it on now so I'll have to see how well it works latter.
