My Mercedes getting a bit of love…

John has carried out some weekend one here at Bridge Classic Cars, working on my 1987 Mercedes 500 SL restoration project. This has been such a long process due to it being one of our own vehicles and never finding the time in the diary to get on with it.

Weekends have now become a thing now to get the car back on the road…hopefully for next summer!!

As you can see, John has been cleaning down the locks and door mechanism to fit up doors.

Mercedes SL Front Brakes

Jon has fitted up the new bleed nipples to the freshly painted calipers.

The bolts have been cleaned and painted

We have cleaned up and reused the pad sensor wires and fitted the calipers to the car.

The old pads have been reused as they are nearly new and we used a new fitting kit to secure the pads.

New front shock absorbers have been fitted.
