Upstairs

Used to be that you could stock pretty much every part you needed to get through a tune-up on a Beetle or a brake job on a 220d. Plugs, points, filters, common gaskets, even some rod bearings.

Now we don’t stock much because we can order a part and it’ll be here in an hour. Even so, it sure would be nice to be able to walk upstairs and get what you need.

Some day we’ll clean out our stock room and sell the old parts on Ebay. No time soon though.

Type II throttle cables are long, and they broke. We were ready.


Wheel bearings and what not.

Some treasure in there. Random Mercedes stuff.
A double ended grinding paste container. Just look at that! Hand drawn logo, one off font. Gorgeous is in the eye of the beholder, but really: take another look.

Start with coarse,


finish with fine.

We miss valve jobs.
