AMG 3 piece OZ Wheel Restoration

Posted on 133 views
I had my first set of these beautiful AMG 3 piece wheels on my 1988 Mercedes 300CE in college. I had to trade a new chrome set of AMG Monoblocks and some cash to get these. I remember repairing cracks in the barrels due to pot holes which happened more than a few times. The wheels were never quite the same after any wheel repairs. Its been 27 years and I decided to dive back into the AMG cars I loved when I was young. I acquired a set of AMG staggered wheels for a 500SEC and a 500SL but both are in desparate need of a restoration. I either had to take them in to a professional wheel company or I could try it on my own….

Clarion G80 Sound System Restoration

Posted on 172 views
Clarion G80 Sound System I have a 1983 Mercedes 500SEC euro spec that was fitted with them AMG body kit and trunk spoiler, AMG Rear Speaker Shelf, Rial Wheels , as well as the visually impressive Clarion G80 Sound System in the center console. When I bought the car, it needed everything. It sat in a barn for over a decade and needed some major attention. Unfortunately the Clarion system was not working. The previous owner said it did work before being put away for many years. When it came time to start troubleshooting the sound system, it became obvious that it was going to be difficult. The Clarion G80 would power ON which let the different modules glow green but the tuner display, the tuner, and the tape deck did not work.
