1993 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series

Unfortunately I'm selling my 500SEL project, but it was fun.. I hope to find someone enthusiastic to continue messing around with a Mercedes (: Bought it in April 2016 with 133k and drove it only one Michigan winter. That German steel tank has no rust. Although had one common rust spot around the trunk lock, it was removed and painted. When it runs (read below), It runs great, never overheated, no engine light, it's just thirsty for premium fuel. There's a lot I've done to it ..briefly it's not a S-Class anymore.. - new FIERCE tires (approx. 2000miles) on original AMG rims - new brake discs & shoes (approx. 2000miles) - new sport shocks (approx. 2000miles) - new H&R rear coil springs (approx. 2000miles) - front ones not installed yet, but included - new upper front suspension arms & tie rods (approx. 2000miles) - new spark plugs, cables, injectors & engine harness (approx. 2000miles) - Oil change with new filter done approx. 2000miles ago - new yellow LED head lights (approx. 500miles) - new original rubber floor mats - new 180° rally rear view mirror - recently modified and coated (Rhino Liner) bumpers & side panels - recently modified exhaust system (SS center muffler, 3" pipe with purple "Hornie") - NASCAR seat belts in the front, NO seat belts in the rear - disabled AC (heater still works) - removed radiator and disabled compressor - removed catalytic converter - adjusted ignition, disabled air pump - modified wiper assembly with "kill switch" to center it - reduced weight about approx. 500lbs - NO stereo, but a bluetooth speaker is included - NO sunroof (sealed without leakage) - removed head light wiper - reduced wire harness for all not needed auxileries - easy access to all electronic devices (all trunk covers removed, etc.) - easy access to all engine parts (all covers removed) ..and there're more little things done here & there.. Here are only a few issues.. - last December the secondary fuel pump died and it's leaking, after a 2mile drive the car gets hick-ups and needs to rest for a while till it starts right back up. The plan was to install a new fuel cell with a racing pump to improve the fuel system and fix this issue (approx. $500) ... Or bypassing the secondary fuel pump should resolve that issue (I read it online somewhere). - the left rear automatic window needs some help to come back up - passenger headrest adjustment doesn't work - rear suspension bushings need to be replaced (spare parts included) Included are also a bunch of new spare parts, like.. - all suspension bushings (front & rear) - all wheel bearings - front H&R springs - park brake shoes - oil filter - etc.- a lot of removed original parts If you're interested and want to know more about it, just don't hesitate to contact me. Needs to be picked up with a trailer, I don't have the license plate mounted anymore. Latest by 08/31/2018. Thank you
