Re: 1999 Mercedes-Benz G500 Europa on BaT

Great model year, nice color. Too bad it's a bit rusty. I'm sure it would perform well and may sell at a good discount due to the evidence of corrosion.

Re: FS: G Professional rear single seats

Using just the inner two bolt holes on the outer hinge mount allows the seat to line up perfectly. Mine is still in progress, but it can be done without welding if you have a set of mounts from a wrecked or burned G. Add tack welded retained nuts and brackets and just bolt the new pieces in to the c...

Re: FS: G Professional rear single seats

The mounting hook in the floor for the rear of the seat bottom can be left in place rather than cutting and moving or modifying it. By only changing the front mounts, the seat ends up about 35mm more to center than the right seat which is not really noticeable. I don't have current pics, but if you ...

Re: FS: G Professional rear single seats

You will either need to move your existing left side hinge seat mounts or buy an extra set. I got mine from a wrecked 463. The latch at the back is slightly more to the center, so it would be half of a mount on the left outer and a full mount for the left inner. This still allows for change out to t...

Re: FS: saddle tank w/ filler

Really nice, Fernando even added one to his 460 that he uses with the bigger plastic tank. An ultimate set up

Re: FS: G Professional rear single seats

Guessing there’s a difference in mounting base between those 460/1 seats and the 463 rears? I received a shipping quote of $655 to the US for a pair of those vinyl pro seats from Australia.. Putting total somewhere around $1,100 USD. That's about what mine cost, or a touch less. Relatively, this is...

Re: TRADE: Lookting to trade rear lights 463

I have the parts you are looking for x 2, but have no need for the modern tail light. I'll pull the lenses later this week and snap a pic. You won't have to leverage much equity to afford them either, plus cheap USPS shipping from Portland. The complete assembly is still available thru the dealer bu...

Re: West Coast Fires

Better forest management would be a step in the right direction. We have seen some improvement in the last few years. Unfortunately, the prior adminstration's goals of wilderness area expansion in some Oregon national forests has only resulted in increased fire risk and abandonment of costly access ...
