Rear seat belt spool hari kari - SWB W460

This winter, occasionally the pedal sometimes required more...

Re: FS: 1982, 280GE parts

I am interested in the DS, PM sent.

Does anyone know whether this DS is correct for the 617 and 711.110 or 113 setup?

Re: 1988 SWB restomod

Nice work! Will follow your progress with interest! Something about the SWB on those BBS wheels, I like that setup a lot. What tires do you have mounted?
