Show us something that you fabricated for your G

Post#1 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:59 am

Today I fabricated a detail out of 6mm steel for my w460.

Can anybody tell what it is? :)

I just made a couple of feet for working on a cylinder head on the bench:

Spot on Chris! :) Will post some shots when its painted and mounted.

I really like the cylinder head feet. Holding the head 35-40 degrees tilted to one side it seems?

Nice stainlesss floor rails / sills!

Does your G have the separate plastic profiles attached to the floor below the rails (w461 style) or did it have the combined rails with screw holes into the floor?

Are you planning to glue them to the old rails?

Yes, indeed floor rails. I do have the plastic profiles/anchors however my original rails no longer seat into them properly as I have added Dynamat plus Dynaliner thus raising the carpet beyond their reach. I also made these a tad bit wider so as to sit a little more on top of the carpet. Attaching will simply use countersunk SS screws.
