Did this video help you?

IraHayesIraHayes: Headlight wipers on a w123? NEVER seen that before. Very cool.

coolakiIlen007: ah i understand what you mean, kinda like mine when i picked it up. everything worked and worked fine except the brakes obvoiusly ;) we dont do that over here, i dont know how you make such a convertion anyway. but the fuel is expensive as hell here. i dont know but i think that there are about 4.5 liters on one gallon (?) and here one liter of diesel costs over 2$ so its about 10 dollars a gallon. :P ;) so a tank is 150$ (65 liter)

Brian Lee: I always love these old style W123 Mercedes-Benz cars, the reason why is that they're the most longest lasting cars in the world. It's one of my favorite Mercedes-Benz vehicles ever in the world. :)

kain161718: @coolakiIlen007 gay

coolakiIlen007: @MS22FFF thank you! :)

Carlipc: Ser fint ut, häftigt med mercedes stjärnan i backspegeln ;-) du verkar har gjort mycket jobb med den och bra blev det.

werlooos90: nice work,240D very good car ;-)

Sanjay Bellare: Rust fix - easier said than done! I don't have cutting, welding and spraying skills unfortunately.........

w124250d1992: Nice job ! Nice music ! :-)

werlooos90: @coolakiIlen007 can you tell me the interpret of the song "under the bordwalk" - it´s a nice version. thx

SirLaQ: looking good! and so classic car gets on his/her feet again! :) had to mention that little bit slower slideshow would be nice. w123 seems to be alive again.

Mikotiini: Please more MB videos! And expecially about the 230E when/if your grandpa starts to restore it with you

coolakiIlen007: @Carlipc oj, ja då är det tur att den är skattebefriad. men den är ju till för finkörning så de spelar ingen roll. ;)

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare hey! well you can buy separate rear wheel arches which you just wield on, but the cheap ones are "patent parts" which is a thinner steel used, and they havent been made by the original manufacture, but i bought patent part front wings/fenders. and the front spolier is actually the end of the 2 front fenders + one middle piece as you can hopefully see in the vid. i dont think you can buy just those fender ends separate, but you could always make your own and spray a dark rust coat on -

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare .. i cant give you much help. i try finding as much original parts to make it as good as possible and have been there trying to buy cheap, but in the end having to buy the more expensive anyway. :P i know what its like in a tight budget, but all i can say its worth paying that extra for the parts most necessary. ;) btw those seals i bought are on ebay aswell the real deal, but of course a bit pricey. im sorry i cant be of more help, but you choose whatever works best for you! ;) CK

Sanjay Bellare: Hi cool, where did you purchase the paint for your car from? Does it have to be direct from Mercedes or can it be bought from a reseller at a cheaper price? Thanks

AldaryLV: you could have pained it in some more interesting color ... :)

Sanjay Bellare: Coola, sent those photos of my W123 to you....

coolakiIlen007: @Carlipc a de tycker jag! är den avställd i videon också? eller har de varit nått problem som lett till avställningen?

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare oh, well if i could give a piece of advice, if you're going to get rubber seals for the doors i would highly recommend the complete ones. i have tried using seals that i cut myself and put on but the wind is just getting straight through and making a lot of noise! of course that might not be your case. i bought a complete seal €50 for ONE, but €150 for a set of four. ;) if it is too pricey in the beginning i suggest saving, cus these are better. or if you need it immedietly -

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare cus i dont know if the swedish sites could be of much help to you. :) but check these out, and good luck. stay in touch if you want i will help you as much as i can. ;) Greetz!

coolakiIlen007: Thankyou! ;) trying to keep her in that condition as good as i can but its hard with all the salt we have here in the winters!

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare the spraying on the other hand is fairly easy to master ;) my merc was my absolutely first try, and it turned out pretty fine except that we couldnt sand the primer properly so it became quite matte.. but the cans i used had a formed nozzle with long and thin ray, just have the ray spraying vertical and then move slowly with same speed, and same distance from the suface as you go back and forth, further and further down. im sure there are good instruction videos on youtube. ;) CK

Rakee: Nice restauration. Respect !

Carlipc: @coolakiIlen007 okej ska kolla på filmen sen. Ja det blir nog så vill ju gärna ha han och åka i nästa sommar :-)

coolakiIlen007: @SirLaQ haha yeah thanks! yeah the slideshow speed adjusts to the length of the song, otherwise it would be no sound in the end of the vid, ill try to fix it better sometime its a really bad programmme.. its a lovely car, and feels great to drive very easy shifting which is unusual on a car this age (not mercedes obviously), even grandpa gave it compliments for its driving. :)

coolakiIlen007: @werlooos90 sorry, i don't quite understand. why i chose it?

coolakiIlen007: @w124250d1992 thankyou! ;) well good enough for me. :) i've checked the ebay site and found the gummi seals! with the transport they were only 500 swedish crowns or ~ 45-50 euro for all 4! :) great tip, i thank you again! greetings.

Sanjay Bellare: Coola, thanks for the info. I did some research for window seals for the car; Mercedes we coming in at £60 for one window! After some investigations I found that the seal profiles are exactly the same as some Triumph models (Dolomite, etc) and I ended up buying 4m for an unbelievable £40! I have now fit them perfectly and saved a fortune! Not so good news; got a quote for total rust removal, fill and paint work £1500 including parts and labour! Hence I need to look at other options; ie. DIY!

coolakiIlen007: haha tack! ;) ja de vart lite extra pill, men de blev lite billighets stuk eftersom lacken vart lite matt då vi inte kunde få tag på tillräckligt fint sandpapper att slipa primern med. (hade 240 behödve nog 1200-1400) :P men tack än en gång, om ja får möjligheten att renovera bubblan så blir det nog lite mer finslipad renovering, om budgeten tillåter vill säga. ;)

Sanjay Bellare: @smbellare Hi Coola I am looking for window seals for my W123, but they are so expensive! Any suggestions if I can get universal ones that will work? If so, what type of profile should I look out for, as there is a website that sells different profile for £4 per metre! Thanks

Sanjay Bellare: About the rust fix - easier said than done! Unfortunately I do not have cutting, welding and spraying skills.........

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare no problems. ;) Im in sweden, i bought my fenders and metal from a local shop that ordered them, you can always check ebay. or any known page in your country. there is a "Wheeler dealers" episode where they buy a 1984-85 230E and they purchase these exact fenders at some giant stock market, i dunno what it is maybe you would recognize it if you saw it, just type "wheeler dealers mercedes 230e" and it'll be there. ;) otherwise ebay is the only international site i can offer, -

VwErik88: Häftig renovering! bra gjort :)

Carlipc: @coolakiIlen007 Jajemen det är den, nej men vi ställde in den för vintern och sen blev det att den fick stå.

coolakiIlen007: @kain161718 sorry i didnt get it.. well its brave of you to come out of the closet in here, should i call your parents?

Barry Allen: CK - you've done a brilliant job on this mate. Congratulations for ensuring that yet another W123 survives and lives on - instead of being scrapped. I know how much time and energy (not to mention money!) that you've put into this project and I hope that you now feel rewarded for your efforts. Once again - really well done mate. You are a star!

jasonvoorhees1428: these cars deserve a second life, good job ! :P

strzaly: Nice work. I see that you've bought w123 instead your grandpa's w124 which were we talking about some time ago. Are you going to restore that old W124 or not?

maxvall250: very nice work, i admire all peoples who want and restore old cars, more peoples like you.

Carlipc: @coolakiIlen007 jaså okej, den drar ca 1.2 milen :-)

coolakiIlen007: when i see it, it does not need any cutting, these are mostly facial rust which is gone with some angle grinding! ;) and a 230E too those are pretty rare, i like the door panels aswell! :) id say that rear fender just needs a few spots grinded then just treat it so it wont become rust again then sand and paint the whole fender, since its a metallic it wont be any much difference from the old paint unlike a mono lack like mine which get faded and bleeched.. :P the rest of your car looks great! CK

thechurchowl27e: nice work and your benz really needed it it,s pretty rusty some off these w123 rust a lot and some stay nice mine was out in a field for 8 yrs and there was no bodywork at all and here in holland it raines a lot and still mine survived don,t know why all it had was a seized clutch and after towing it in gear the clutch came loose and i drove it home even still had brakes mercedes are tough love them

AldaryLV: @coolakiIlen007 thats the main thing that you like it yourself ;)

coolakiIlen007: @Carlipc a de e la ganska vanligt. :P min farfar har en w124 230E -88 som kamkedjan gick av på, men han bytte den själv sen funka den skitbra bara att han tyckte den passa bättre på gården ute i skogen där den stått 5 år nu snart.. va ute och startade den för lite drygt ett år sen, funka felfritt bara att det var en läcka i bränslet. :P har ett klipp när vi startar den också. ;) ville renoverat den också men vet inte hur de blir med de.. :P men ni borde absolut besikta 230:in! ;)

coolakiIlen007: @strzaly yes, this w123 was owned by an ex schoolmates father and sat about 1km from my house.. :) if i hadnt bought it, the cousin to the family would have used it running around on the fields.. And yes that was the intension, i still wanna restore the 230E real bad but now my grandpa says theres no point. dunno but looking at the body its still in better cond. than my w123 was, still its been on high grass. we'll see perhaps next summer i might go there and hopefully pursuade my grandpa.. :P

coolakiIlen007: @werlooos90 Indeed! Thankyou i will! ;)

coolakiIlen007: @TimLenhartTech Hi! yeah fillar mostly does the trick, its easy, cheap and gets good results if your skilled with filling.. :) you should really fix her up! check my other vids on how mine looked before. :)

coolakiIlen007: @smbellare well thats great! as long as it fits theres nothihng to lose! ;) about the rust fix, i just bought the lower door sides, cut the old door sides off, and welded the new ones on cus my lower part of the doors were so terribly eaten! the hardest part is the rear fenders which cannot be screwed off, they need to be cut which is why i never bothered with that just grinded the facial rust and put filler and paint on it. though it has started to glimpse some rust under the paint again.. :P
