    Default Lorinser Benz Wagon x Kinghorn

    Hey!




    I'll introduce myself, prior experience, and past builds further down for those who don't know, but for the OG's - Been MIA for a year and some change and never quite finished my S|W E34 thread as I frequented bimmerforums over stanceworks, BUT I'm back and thats for good This is the one and only *Official Build thread for the Lorinser Benz Wagon



    Before you get started; A LOT has gone into this thread to make it as entertaining, as revealing, and as realistic as possible. I cant promise this thread will be worth the time spent scrolling, and it may in fact waste hours of your life, but I promise you it's a good read and as well a PICTURE HEAVY one (for those who solely look at pictures *raises hand emoji). Ill try to be as descriptive as possible adding my own bits of comedic humor here and there, and although it may be 2018, if you take offense to any of it; hit the back page. You'll see tons of faces and tons of background tidbits - its all for personal recollection, its the build thread revolving around my life. The people in it are included for personal recollection and as well; I'd like you to meet them, friends or family, as they've helped in some way in furthering this build or providing solid memories and lastly - brought meaning... If your an avid Mercedes fan, there will tons of other cars and content in it for ya.

    *Friendly reminder; this threads already been rendered for full screen! Sit back, grab some popcorn, slap your favorite tunes, full screen this bishh, and lastly - relax and enjoy!







    My names Abraham (close buddies call me Abe), I recently turned 20 years old and have been building/wrenching/writing/owning for quite a few years now. I'm currently going to school full time and as well working full time, making it hard to find time for automotives. In the past I've owned 10 cars to date (among these; 3 E34's, 2 E36's a Ti and an M3, 3 S210's, a W220 S55, and a W215 CL500) buying/selling or keeping for a few months and letting go and they've all been European vehicles if you didn't get the hint... but yet have only built one solid car so far. That one car that I built was/is very dear to me. A 1995 BMW 530it/5 that I built from the ground up. Appropriate 10+ page extensive build thread can be found by clicking this link here (yes this actual text - it'll take you there).












    Now what we're all here for; the intro to the intro...
    The Intro









    a 1998 Mercedes-Benz Lorinser E320 Wagon (S210)



    I'm very open about most things, including price. If I leave anything undisclosed, feel free to ASK!
    This particular car, came with 180,000 miles, a salvaged title, and as well a $1,200 total purchase price tag




    Complete with the full Authentic Lorinser kit - 5-piece exterior, two-piece wheels, ecu, and exhaust.

    As well comes complete with a gnarly front end incident and its fair share of rust









    This next shot hurts the soul



    Previous owner made sure to keep the raggedy theme consistent throughout the interior as well;

    Fur seat covers, horrid smells, crusty filth, missing radio, pubic hair, who knows what kind of diseases, a suicide knob I removed BUT
    at least the previous owner left me with some authentic brabus goodies




    For the purchase price, they were all things I was willing to put up with. Although the wicked horrid smells, pubic hair galore, and potential diseases had me petrified and ready to puke,

    I felt it was a solid buy and worth fixing. First things first - get the front end fixed and road legal






    Upon front collision, the metal headlight surround was bent beyond repair.

    I cut off the old chassis bracket and welded a new sucker in



    New bracket welded on and yes my welds are ugly no shame in my game (need the equipment to start getting into welding but its a major goal)









    Road legal and better than before now just needs a wash cus she filthy h*e!





    At this time (a year and 3 months ago) I had both cars. I was in process of selling the BMW though, this must've been days before selling it woah #ripp










    but you're not seriously thinking im going to build upon a salvage title'd rust bucket are you?
    Bring In the Second and Third S210










    Now you're probably thinking "damn the bug hit this guy pretty hard" and if you are - you'd be entirely right. I made the change from BMW to Mercedes because I wanted out of the everyday car lifestyle

    I still wanted to own a sick car, but not a BMW you have to work on constantly especially if you have an avid itch to kick the rear end... Yet somehow, I found myself entrenched back into the consistent car lifestyle

    Anyways, a second car was purchased because it came fully packaged (sound package w/ navi, massage/heated seats, clean interior, rack, 130,000 miles, new tires, etc)

    ended up snagging for a decent $1,800 which looking back came back to haunt me


    The day I went to go first inspect the vehicle ultimately driving home with it


    #2 - a 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320 Wagon (S210)







    Next up was finally the car to build upon. A clean inside and out '01 E320. Clean title, 170,000 miles, and no accidents ever reported including no rust, interior was immaculate

    Aquired through an Auto Auction w/ our dealers license - $640 out the door for this one.

    #3 - a 2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 Wagon (S210)








    Off topic, but for those ford folks or others interested in trucks, this is our family's truck and as well parts/car hauler

    an '03 Ford Excrusion Limited in the 6.0 V8 Turbo Diesel Platform - things a monster! We've done extensive modifications to it



    Was a short tow home 50 miles (didn't even need to tow but decided since the car was purchased sight unseen I'd play it safe for once)



    Dont normally get both garage bays available so thought that this was photo worthy, *not the fact that there was three silver S210's next to each other









    Wait What?!?!?!
    Deconstructing Lorinser's Lorinser Build








    Ah yes, as the title states; the car Lorinser built - now getting unbuilt by kinghorn








    Decided, I'll get all the lorinser goodies off this car, and resell it for basically what I paid for it maybe even make some money and essentially get paid to keep the kit and wheels

    Started by taking off the 15 year old tint and throwing on the spare face-lift body panels




    Then used the car to tow my brothers parts car W114 out of the garage after being on jack-stands taking up the garage spot for almost a year




    Two-piece original Lorinser LM1 19" wheels removed and cleaned up










    I have all the body kit pieces off, now just forcing 'em all to fit
    Putting the Lorinser Puzzle Together








    Keep in mind the time realm is about a solid year a couple months ago. Were still catching up to present, so starting the journey lets begin with the with one of my favorite pieces, the body kit

    My favorite part that makes this build unique, being the body kit, a Authentic Lorinser Pre-facelift kit, *dislike being that guy but the kit was made in under 200 production units

    and certainly a quarter of that is the wagon specific kit (rear bumpers are different between wagon/sedan). Basically this kit in its form is pretty rare.

    I stole the kit considering what the kitted panels were worth new...

    front bumper $1899 pn488217220
    fog 482 $559 pair
    488217520 rear bumper $1699
    side fairings pn4882186left pn2187 right $499 each
    rear muffler exhaust $2099
    Unfortunately, the kit is prefacelift and both the other S210's I acquired are face-lift. Sourcing a face-lift Lorinser kit would be like trying to source unobtanium and my pockets are quite shallow
    so it looks like we'll be making it fit (plus im a huge fan of all the face-lift goodies such as digital cluster, etc)






    It was at about this time, before mounting it all onto the new car, that I finally sold the first wagon - the lorinser rust bucket. Sale Price: $1450 cash.
    I pretty much broke even and am walking away with the full lorinser kit and two piece LM1 wheels ultimately for free. Made out like a bandit!!!




    Now onto the pictorial, sticking the entire kit on the cleanest most recent S210 (sorry if I've lost you, too many S210's lol!)




    the prefacelift tailgate is shaped differently over the facelift model so to fit the wing, it needs to be shaved in order to close the gaps; shaving fiberglass? easy.



    This is what we got for our final alignment all around. Quite literally almost perfect and maybe better than lorinsers gaps...?





    Would be pretty hard to get popped for a third brake light out now, seeing as I've got two




    Sideskirts up next or often referred to as rocker panel moldings





    All the tabs were aged, creased, bent, or broken. For roughly 15 years old, I'm not surprised, I have female friends who were in worse shape at 15

    New ones were sourced at roughly $5 for the lot







    Funny story about that last picture. On my 18th birthday in the early evening, I decided to go to a significant view spot with my female at the time and upon leaving my fuel pump decided to give out so the wagon was left there, night plans weren't going to be stopped!

    Was a rough night and day following too. That picture was taken the day following with a tremendous and horrendous hangover

    FYI; legal drinking age in mexico is 18, and mexico is as well 10 minutes from San Diego, so you can bet your ass a solid time was had by all, i think....



    Rear bumper = Preface-lift models mount completely differently and have brackets. Welp, I cut out those suckers off the original lorinser car before selling it, and am now welding 'em onto the facelift car. See pictures




    my buddy Sammy (@5er_sammy) coming in torching on the welds





    garage build with gaps better than lorinsers?









    finally feel like progress is paying off and we're getting to the point where the ideas becoming a reality




    and 'voila! theres wing/skirts/rear bumper although I managed to sneak in exhaust but you probably didnt notice anyways...



    talk about a frankenstein build, facelift and stock upfront - prefacelift and lorinser modifications in the rear. #YTS




    Really wish the Lorinser LM1's came ready to mount ◕╭╮◕

    Unfortunately both the fronts had massive bends in them, needed to be straightened and rebuilt so they sat like pancakes on the parts car
    speaking of that low mileage parts car






    86,000 mile motor? Bet. Pulled that sucker out... Awaiting that partial rebuild but we'll come back to that!

    parents place looking like a junkyard while waiting on the junkyard to pick up this gigantic pile









    Theres always complications...
    Life and Side Hustles Intervene








    While going through daily routine scouring the interwebz, this popped up;



    Im not comfortable sharing the price on this guy, because if I did some of y'all would h@te me, therefor just pretend it was a relatively low number.




    Honestly way too much car for a 19 year old Backed by a german M113K and for those that dont know;

    a 5.4 German AMG V8 coupled with an AMG supercharger. Hell of a vehicle - crazy fast, crazy heavy, and crazy thirsty.





    In my opinion, one of the most prettiest benz's out there! Such a beautiful sedan



    Then I did the responsible thing (unfortunately). Fixed a few small things, replaced a single Automatic Transmission Cooler Line that was $400 alone, and the car hit the market sigh



    if you read the introductory paragraphs you'd know why im including this




    Ultimately without going Uber deep into detail, a pretty long story came to an end and was tough to cope with

    caused a rough patch in work/school/and even the car took its fair share of hits

    (pun intended - you'll get it by reading further HAHA)

    took out built up anger on the rear driver door with my fist... was caused by immaturity coupled with stupidity smfh - i guess at a young age females will do that to you




    was a lose/lose situation. My knuckles were bruised for weeks and looking back it was stupid foolish #riporiginaldoor



    luckily I knew of some one with a parts car




    moving on, sorry for the OT



    DJ Khalid voice "anotha one"

    Sorry that quote was cringy... As for this CL, it was already in the family and so after acquiring, my sole purpose was flipping/getting rid of

    here's the for-sale ad headliner image and a few other shots





    that got sold relatively quick, lasted about a week on the market, another one of those epicly beautiful mercedes, so much drool and so much urge to build!

    I was notified from a buddy of my'n who owns a junkyard in Germany, that a car came in with one of these (see picture below)

    so I says to the guy, I says let me know when you source two together and then we'll talk a sale.

    Welp, I was notified. and we talked a sale



    It was at about this time I believe I moved out (august of '2017) to an apartment with two roommates in Sierra Mesa, San Diego.

    (for those of you San Diego locals, Sierra Mesa = minutes away from Convoy and all the amazing food)

    the Lorinser Benz Wagon was my moving truck as you can tell;




    somehow managed to find and fit a free huge wooden L shaped desk for our living room inside and on top of the work horse and brought it home safely

    emphasis on brought it home safely, wow was I surprised

    fuCk YoUr grOCeRY GeTter dIs aN ApArtMeNT GEtTeR



    With the CL sold another car was stumbled upon and acquired
    Cant mention the price on this guy either

    An Individual, Moreagreun, clean title, 130,000 mile, s52/auto, E36 M3 <3





    original plans were getrag/hardtop/boost but oh how times are tough for broke college students trying to make ends meet with San Diego rent



    ultimately, car was daily'ed for two months then let go of... this was saddening








    something insane has to be powering a build of this calibur right?
    Stock Motor? yikesssssss





    Damn, ass-whole narrator over here giving away spoilers. Anyways, Yikessss. Keep in mind I was 19 years old, going to school full time, working full time, and have gnarly bills to pay monthly. Going with anything other than stock motor is pushing budgeting limits

    -Believe it or not, my brother owns a Mercedes W203 C32 AMG which has the same stock motor as my car (the m112) but AMG internals and a supercharger on top. His car got backed into and might be totaled. That could be a potential swap later down the road, keep an eye out and it may become reality!

    Anyways, the stock motor runs nicely but compression was starting to dwindle, had a coolant leak, and oil looked shady. This all prompted swapping in the 86,000 mile motor/tranny combo with a refresh.




    Of course, I cant just swap. New stuff has got to go on as well! Top right alone; four brand new BOSCH Oxygen sensors were $400 and that was through rock auto with a discount, ouch sincerely

    but bosch? -Quality you can taste







    and so the tear down on the factory motor begins





    such a putrid photo, hairs on the back of my neck stand up looking at a photo like this




    factory engine out having completed 17 years - 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers)...




    since my parts car had 85,000 miles (135,000 kilometers) I decided resealing and installing the 85,000 mile steering rack was a better idea than keeping the 186,000 stock one





    If you haven't noticed yet, I hold myself to a high standard and level of craftsmanship and workmanship. Things on this car are to be done once and done right.

    With this being said, a pressure washer was sourced and used to clean up the engine bay and blast years of dirt and grime away.




    Tear down of the new motor begins



    *side note a friend brought over her couple week old friend




    double side-note, Im a huge cat person, Im allergic, but love the suckers to death. This is our family's hypo-allergenic lil guy that goes by the name of Akeekee and is 12 weeks old

    He's an F3 savannah cat (not similar to a bengal) as this ones great great ancestors are servals (the african wildcats) so this guys legit a percent or two cheetah lmao.





    shameless self-promotion as if I know what I'm doing



    Starting off with the transformation on the valve-cover

    First step was to sand down everything off the valve cover and wipe with acetone

    Weapon of choice was a wire brush attached to a high-powered drill to blast everything off and bring it down to bare metal.



    Plugged holes, covered threads, then laid down a couple thick coats of a high temperature primer get the base and foundation solid




    paint of choice; RUSTOLEUM High Temp Paint! Proudly sponsored not by Rustoleum but damn they should honestly probably give me something. thats lime-light right there...





    applying small coats, covering thoroughly, and getting all angles



    as well used a high temp clear, wish I snagged a pic of the can for the audience, if its requested Ill try and pop one!

    came out looking wet-wet though! made sure to lay the clear down thick but not a single run still!



    fresh outta the paint booth... actually, im not kidding anyone, honestly these came out of the shed behind my garage bro






    now first of all, before you say "its uzing - you used too much and probably have it lining on the inside"

    No. if you know MBZ valve covers you know they all leak. I tried to prevent so by using heavier RTV amounts in more prone to leak areas.




    fuel rail receiving new o-rings, injectors being half-assed cleaned at home




    this next photo is actually quite orgasmic


    and for those curious - your welcome


    My OCD taking hold again. Valve cover bolts dropped in pans of gas and scrubbed after waiting a couple of minutes. Worked wonders ya dig





    motors ready to drop in! although its not pictured, the motor received new gaskets, seals, orings, applicable pumps, etc



    now pause for clarity, in fact run that picture back one more time...



    I mean honestly WTF. Who lifts a motor like this?!?!?! May have been a year ago but was I this idiotic? Someone wanna chime in on a roast? Cus honestly fine if you do shiiiiit.





    car got put back together, except this time in a much better state






    fired up and running almost perfect! swap was finished March of '2017! Photo of car burning off oil upon first start and in 4x4 mode




    alignment immediately after the swap because of the steering rack swaps



    and yes i take my car to shops for alignments, my inner-OCD wants it perfect and I dont have the equipment for perfect. Plus, this meme is truth



    daily'ed for a few months as is. Even took it on an uber cool trip to Big Bear




    forgot to mention, for those that dont know the cars a 7 seater. It has two rearward facing seats, equipped with cupholders, seatbelts, and even a cigarette lighter in the very back



    But for the big bear trip I happened to fit six people and everyone's boarding gear, how? No clue but made it happen. Was a killer good time








    Wtf abe, does interior not matter to you?
    Interior Matters to Me








    Literally, my posterior is in there the most, so yes interior does matter

    Starting off with a lil sum' light - some slight cluster work

    swapped out the boring yellow cluster lights with LED's



    didnt like how off white it was and how some were whiter than others so that got ditched within days

    one of the main resistors in the cluster gave out, which caused me to loose all lights, and some other functions so i saw moment to go all in and repair/replace tons

    Pulled circuit boards, fixed the common pixel issues for the temperature and time that it seems like every 210 has problems with and even added the digital speedometer feature



    New cluster modified and in place, showing off the working pixels all around and the newly added digital speedo feature

    Even added LED's in a few things such as turn signals and key warnings... Its the subtle things



    Even sourced and installed chrome cluster gauge rings that I didn't like at first but are growing on me...




    I HAVE AN OBSESSION WITH OEM CAR PHONES

    On my last BMW build, I had installed not one but two OEM car phones at the same damn time




    and of course, had to have one in this particular Benz build

    *looking for another as well if you happen to know of or have one for sale DM me!



    Big on heated seats, its a necessity for any build/daily of my'n! My parts car came optioned with them - end of discussion.




    Stock seats were mint! Of course though the heated and multi-contoured seats are to get swapped in though. The tear down begins



    some buddies decided to cruise through and assist but actually ended up throwing a mini turn up in my garage haha





    THE BEER BONG lol anyways continuing on; interior getting gutted in preparation for vacuum lines and the heated seats harness




    making sure this retro-fit is direct OEM installment (Making it look like my car came with this option from the factory, not ghetto and NO SHORTCUTS)

    ran the positive leads to the correct fuse location in the fuse box for the heated seats, as prior mentioned as OEM as possible.




    In the factory wiring diagram another 12V positive lead runs to the fuse box under the rear seat

    This was a legit headache to get to, dont recommend


    and after about a solid 5 hour investment, bingo!



    Unfortunately, now that I've added a few options to the car, I now need a different center console wood trim piece... Went from no options to options



    its 2:10am in the W210



    Real problem being not many E320's with the normal mahogany wood came optioned with every single option including the double din... Only AMG's came like so and they came factory with Birds Eye Maple wood...

    Making this an extremely tough find, and yes their are some on eBay, if you're willing to pay the $450 average price tag...

    *picture is for clarification; far left = single din + all options / middle and right pieces = double din + no options haha

    My task was to create a double din with all the options



    I had an ingenious idea; piece the two together



    JB welded the two pieces together



    Came together with this, but my OCD wasn't having it. So it got bondo to flatten the gap and wrapped gloss black along with all the other trim













    Moving on; Steering wheels are important and not having a disgusting wheel is just as important




    Came up with a list of work that my older brothers W210 E430 needed and was willing to do so in exchange for his wooden steering wheel

    *Just pulling it off gave me massive backlash! blood was shed though so even a stripped bolt behind the steering wheel wasn't going to stop me





    and walah love the relation between the chrome mercedes badge and the chrome gauge rings















    Friends and Family mean most
    Can I Introduce My 210 Buddies?








    It all started through instagram! These buddies run the @SOCALW210's Instagram page, go check it out and give it a like/follow!

    But had been following closely, and while I was vacationing in another city with a friend I ran into Isaac (an owner of the page) in rush hour traffic on the freeway

    Was the coolest coincidence haha! Anyways if your an avid W210 fan, check them out! Anyways, all those guys live about 100 miles north of me so I cruise up occasionally!



    Here's a shot of us attending a SocalAMG Lounge BBQ Picnic



    We got Kyle (one of the page's owners) and his aggresive '99 E55 AMG - @kylejeworski



    Connor and his MINT 60,000 mile '01 E55 AMG - @connorfelan



    Isaac (another page moderator) and his low '01 E55 AMG - @isaackangg



    Rob who daily's his beater W210 E320 but owns as well a '05 E55 AMG - @e55rob



    Of course as always a good time and a solid turn out



    But good kicking it with good company and always cool to see so many W210's in one spot


    I think my lens needed to be cleaned, that last shot came out goofy









    stanceworks.com where "low is a lifestyle" yet clearly not this guys lifestyle!?!?

    Or how about this one HAHA

    There is no lows, the only low in this thread is my attention span after reading such a long ass thread
    Lows? I'm On It Boss!








    See well, I was on it untill this happened! Mercedes Benz Spring Compressors

    ♢ you either dont know of them and in that case you're smart for not having touched them

    ♢ know of them cus your sketchy and like to live life dangerously

    ♢ or knew of them *past tense because the spring compressor caused death.

    LUCKILY, IM HERE TO TELL THE STORY LMAO, I was almost the past tense from.

    While pulling out the front springs, the Mercedes spring compressor tool broke a tooth and let go of all tension on the spring

    The spring acting like a fucking rocket ship ricocheted in the wheel well multiple times ultimately blasting my knuckles and gashing my forehead, fucking sick brah!!!



    but guess what I didn't die and the front end's pretty low




    Current front suspension is as follows;

    E55 AMG Front Springs Cut 2.5 Coils
    #1 Spring Pads from Mercedes
    Bilstein E55 AMG Shocks
    E55 AMG Front Sway Bar



    rolling on the stock 16" sport wheels for the time being as the Lorinser LM1's need to be repaird, repainted, and new tires thrown on...



    shortly after, the rear lorinser LM1's which were atleast in decent enough conditon to roll on got thrown on and taken to the gas station for pics : ) #utterdonklyfe

    Loving the idea that the front is relatively close to lip/fender on stock 16's, i cant even imagine what the 19" lorinser's will look like up front! Keep scrolling and you may find out



    also, some ignorant bastard in my campus's parking lot backed into my car a while ago and caused the lower dent below the tail...

    Campus police can write me copious amounts of tickets for my car but cant find out whome did this? Should be punishable with death










    Not necessarily a fan of huge meets, more of the interpersonal spend time with friends/famiy typa person which is what made this event epic...
    The Leavenworth Drive Is Legit (2017)








    Drove from San Diego CA to Leavenworth Washington a total of almost 40 Hours of driving and almost 3,000 total miles

    saw some of the prettiest views I had ever seen and drove on some of the most epic'est roads I've ever drove on

    and this was all June of 2017! Im heading on the 2018 Leavenworth drive in a few days <3





    kyle mashin out putting in seat time




    didnt take many photos on the way there or even there to tell you the truth




    Although I didn't get many photos Leavenworth, I can make up for it by profering copious amounts of photos from;

    The Worlds largest gathering of e30's, the authentic where it all came from e30 picnic, the LeMays Collection E30 Picnic in Tacoma Washington

    On our way out we made sure to hit this event! Having worked on my brothers multiple e30's including his Imported E30 touring and owning/building an E34 which is in the same ball park, I felt it was a necessary






    S|W member? Who R U?!?!






    and of course we were out there holdin it down for the benz boi's



    and that concluded it all, now the 20 hour drive home with rollers and all




    Isaac's 210 looking OEM + and almost perfect







    and the sun sets










    Always Compression/Leak-down Test an Engine Before Going In
    I Threw in a Motor With A Bad Headgasket








    Well to sum it all up, yes. Always leak down/compression test haha

    The motor that had 86,000 miles on it, but the head gasket was already toast. I BELIEVE the previous owner stuck a head gasket fix inside the motor to allow it to run fine for the span of a month ;/



    Sourced a new OEM motor, 128,000 on the clock, cost: $375 out the door














    ⇓ ⇓ ⇓ One of my all time favorite photos as of right now in this build thread ⇓ ⇓ ⇓











    I love leaving ya'll puzzled... Heres a puzzling picture to the prefacelift front-end



    Nothing bolts up... Keep in mind, the body kit is prefacelift (96-99) and the cars a facelift (00-02)

    So we have to run preface-lift body panels up front to get the preface-lift kit to work and this is what it looks like with the preface-lift parts put in rough place

    They dont line up at all haha! But sourced all the parts from my buddies european junkyard

    Even got the AMG Prefacelift headlights from my buddy kyle (earlier mentioned - thanks again Kyle!)



    got the fender on after creating mounts to raise the height 1-3/4" inches

    as well cut and rewelded the hood brackets that latch to the front core support (moved them further down and out as well to get them to latch properly)




    passenger side layed down (saving fine tune adjustments till the end)



    replaced the hood star (shiny chrome, quality you can taste)



    then remember that flag pole and parking pole from earlier?



    dropped it for the night as it was late, this was tough to not be able to finish



    came back a few days later when I had the time!



    and yeeeeeeeeeeeeet




    working on some more final adjustments





    these oem wheels are 16's by the way




    worked out the last of the alignment and adjustments

    hit the headlight covers with a spray can from my local automotive story

    got the gaps to look pretty good for a different model front end that isnt supposed to fit








    havent driven a lowered car in a solid year since I sold the bmw, had to get used to it



    There may be a few of you to **** and/or comment negatively about on this next photo, if so there are a ton of things I'd like to say to you in advance, but I shall digress, please dont.

    Sailing this land yacht



    Met a super cool W208 owner! (@mackyuno619 - on instagram)



    Bought a roof rack - approaching full utilitarianism out of my car - just need a tow hitch now

    from here on out are updates and advances to the car, keep an eye out, bigger things to come!

    Thanks for reading and look forward to comments/feedback!
