It will continue to nosedive if the uploader doesn't work properly and pics can't be posted. Or did I make that up and the uploader is actually fine and I'm an idiot?

Mercedes numbering system names the weight first and the power second, so a 408 would be circa 4t MAM and 80hp. Can't find actual figures at the moment,but most were slightly over-rated by 100kg for w...

2.7 unladen. Celotex, batten and 3mm ply isn't too heavy. It's not fast so the least weight added, the better. The forum uploader hasn't worked properly for ages, trust me, I'm not making it up. [...

Yeah it drove back fine, no mechanical issues. Bit stinky though, fumes getting in from somewhere so windows open. Its a 3.8 4 cylinder DI. 90's spec? This is from 1982 man.

Went well. Takes some driving though! No power assist on the steering or brakes. HEAVY accelerator pedal and 55mph tops. Just over4 hours from Totness to my yard. Not too bad.
