Thread: Static 190E 2.3-16

  1. Default

    Here is where the car is now. I have since painted it semi-flat black, and installed the LED fog lights. Still STATIC!!!

    What are you running for suspension in the front?

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Running Bilstein B8 Performance Strut in front (P/N 22-003652) coupled with the strut mounts from a 1995 500SL (aka w129 chassis) which are P/N 1243200473. The SL strut mounts give you about 3 inches more travel than the typical w201 strut mounts.

    Springs are from a w124 wagon and cut to desired height.

    Is there enough hood clearance with sl top mounts?

    Well, there is enough that the shock does not poke through the hood. But, the clearance did not come without a bit of shaving. You will see that I had to grind down the edge of the shock and the retaining nut.

    And, as you can see, there is some scraping on hard bumps.

    But, I have not dented the hood. So, we're still good.

    And, just for fun, a picture after installing the LED foglights.

    Love 190s

    Here is a video that I shot primarily to address the w202 chassis Mercedes. HOWEVER, because w202 springs are often used on w201 (190E) and w124 (300E, 500E, etc.) chassis Mercedes, I felt that it would be worthwhile to share it here too. Within the first 2 minutes, you can get all of the information you need from the video.

    If Akira Kurosawa owned a 190E, it is my hope that he would have created a film like this one:

    For the 2 or 3 of you that enjoy nerding out to my 190E videos, here is Part II:

    If anyone ever wondered how the Borla muffler sounded on this, then here you go:

    I actually really like how it sounds. That's a nice 2.3-16 you have

    Now I realize, stanced cars need roller videos like this one. We get to see them sitting around, but we don't get to see them in action that often. Thanks!

    I totally agree. Though I have spent countless hours being inspired by pictures of various slammed cars on this website, I always wanted to see them rolling. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then imagine what a film can do!

    My hope is that something on this thread inspires another to create their own build - and see their vision turn into a reality.
