A little update

I have had many fantastic trips with Silkesvarten so far this summer. Aproximately 500 km until now. Most of them in my hometown, but last saturday we went for trip to "Skafferiet" at Helgøya in lake Mjosa. The car works perfect!! We travelled at the small local roads. It gives time to look at the nature. The only problem so far is a small brake fluid leak in the brake booster. I have been in contact with Will Sampler at S & S imports who is an expert on these boosters. I have now removed the vacum hose and the leak has stopped. I will rebuild the booster with Wills help next winter. Now I have to push a little harder on the brake pedal. (it feels like driving a ordinary car..... )

The feeling of driving a Mercedes Benz from the 50th, is the feeling of quality, luxury, comfort, joy and happyness!

Actually I think I should go for a ride right now!!

What about another update? About what works, what needs more attention etc. After all, the car has been used and I guess you have made experience useful for other owners/builders as well as for us plain curious guys.

Best regards

You are right Tor. I do have to make an update soon! It's just been so busy and too much fun lately, so I have "forgotten" this blog. :)
