Re: 1991 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 300GD Cabrio Turbo Diesel

^^^I can’t believe the snorkel is just for looks. Lol.

I thought the 606a needed an intercooler in front of the radiator? They reconfigured an intake manifold so that the intake air comes over the valve cover, and left out the intercooler?

Re: Mirror Base Refinishing

400 grit followed by 2 coats of primer and 2-4 matte top coats should be plenty to make it really nice. You may want to do the upper mirror housing in a matching paint as well. Here is the 1990s style which I really like. That looks really good, Eric. I have repainted housings in good shape, so may...

Thanks, Vadim. Matte was my first choice. Will put some 1000 and 1500 grit wet sandpaper on them beforehand.

Mirror Base Refinishing

Each aluminum side mirror base on my MBUSA G500 was oxidized with the paint flaking off. I’ve removed the paint and oxidization. The mirror housings were repainted when we took care of the rusty spots down low, so I need to refinish by hand. I plan to POR15 each mirror base, instead of removing and ...

Re: 1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G 300 TD

The intake manifold appears to have been reconfigured so that the intake air no longer comes over the valve cover, but instead goes through an intercooler in front of the radiator or in the bumper. Ah, I see it now, Eric. Thanks, didn't realize I was looking at a 603a with an intercooler added. I w...

Re: 1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Class G 300 TD

Paint job seems like a good deal "I spent $4200 on the new paint job that as you see in the pictures is immaculate." I could live with most all of it, except for the paint job, and might go for a look see. Can we tell which motor this is? This links to the local FS info: http://topclassic...

Re: WTB 1990s 4 door 350TD

OP’s welcome to ping me, if you are in S. Florida and want to see an ‘03 G500 for comparison. I’d love a turbo diesel with AC, but it’s tough to find one that checks all the boxes for interstate driving here. Expanding your search to include a V8 opens tons of possibilities.

Re: 1999 Europa G500 SWB

eBay listing not active, and shows reserve not met. Keeping the torn spare cover was a nice touch. :roll:
