[MBZ] Weird thing I found today

2021-08-01 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
I had a spray can of sunscreen and a spray can of bug repellent in the pouch 
behind the driver seat in the 05E320 wagon. Went to retrieve something in the 
back seat today and see this sticky black goo all over a roll of paper towels I 
had on the floor. The bottom of the pouch was all gooey too and had been eaten 
through like melted. 

I took out the cans and noticed the bottom of the bug stuff can looked like it 
was leaking a tiny bit although it still had about a third of the stuff in the 
can. I guess the seam on the can is not well-sealed and it has been slowly 
leaking. And destroyed the pouch!  This is really weird and really kinda p1$$e$ 
me off that it messed up my nice car like that.

Re: [MBZ] 2007 GL450 - $2,500

2021-08-01 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
I would strongly consider that if it wasn’t rusty and had a tow package (and if 
I wanted one) as it looks pretty nice. Beat him down a bit, figure out what the 
issue is with a scan.  Hell maybe just needs Fluid or a fluid change.  I’d 
offer $1500 maybe depending on how bad it looks on a scan and how bad he wants 
to be shed of it. 

The 164 06ML500 I got likely needs a rebuild as it really doesn’t want to shift 
gears. Might just be the pump As it is showing a hydraulic fault but that is 
integral to the whole thing so you have to tear it apart anyway. 

I was watching some youtubers of rebuilding a 722.9, it actually doesn’t look 
that hard once you have the thing on a bench and a rebuild kit with all the 
clutches and such is surprisingly cheap, less than $300 and you can buy some 
that are a lot heavier duty too which would be good for towing. This 06ML 
doesn’t have a hitch though so that is a whole nuther bag of worms to add. 

The conductor plate OTOH is $850...

(That’s Gullah)

Been loading up my 10ft trailer With random building materials, lumber, 
plumbing, wiring, etc. it’s 95F this afternoon, and humidity is right there 
too, so it has not been the most fun. But thunderstorms are moving through the 
area so it’s cooling off a bit now. Maybe I’ll wait until tomorrow to move 
stuff over, and go the beach for a swim after the storms pass. (Better plan!)

Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers plans to open in a newly constructed 
building at 4540 Ladson Road, possibly by late September.The building is now 
under construction on an outparcel in front of Ladson Oakbrook Shopping Center 
next to Stars and Strikes bowling and arcade center on the edge of Summerville.
Based in Wichita, Kan., Freddy's has four other locations in South Carolina

A company spokeswoman said she did not know of any other restaurants planned

[MBZ] So what would be a reasonable offer on this dead 05E320 wagon

2021-07-28 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
I’m going to go take a look at it when I get back home. Basically like the 
wagon I have not 4matic though. Woman said the owner was told it needed 
(apparently) a new ECU (or some computer) to make it run.  “She said all the 
lights come on and battery is new. The dealership said it’s a small computer 
glitch.   Just the kind for that model. It’s about 1000 at the dealership“  

I’ll take my scanner and see what it shows. If it’s the ECU a new one will need 
to be cloned so $1k is probably about right. But then it would be a $4k car at 
least I would think.

decent shape
and the pictures are an accurate representation of the cars current condition. 
Front passenger window, vacuum door locks and AC currently do not work. 

Text, call, or email with and additional questions. No tire kickers and I do 
not need help selling this vehicle.

1994 Mercedes Benz S350 Turbo Diesel for sale. Miles are unknown since the 
odometer doesn't work, I'm guessing around 250k. Runs good, drives good. Makes 
noise going over bumps. AC doesn't work, but the heat does. Radio kinda works, 
when it wants to. Good tires and brakes. Car is far from perfect, but 
dependable as anything I've ever owned. Front and rear windscreens are cracked 
as well. 

Asking $1900 obo. Before you make an offer, come look at it.

Re: [MBZ] Mini splits

2021-07-22 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
I have put in 3 systems with 8 head units. The install is easy. Just make sure 
the connections on your lines are all seated and tight and be careful about 
bending the lines. I hired my local AC guy to do the refrigerant (the units are 
all pre-charged) - doing nitrogen pressure test, then pumping it down to vacuum 
and releasing the gas. This is required for the warranty on my LG units. It’s 
all pretty easy.

Re: [MBZ] ML350 hits a tree

2021-07-18 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
That looks like a 164, unibody. The 163 body on frame had a 350 too. 

Some 17yo girl missed the curve just down the road a month or so ago and hit a 
big live oak tree that did not move. 2AM, >100mph, Toyota of some sort. Car was 
torn in half. I think she died in the crash, or maybe another one, a 14yo 
passenger died a couple weeks later, another girl in critical condition, maybe 
that was the driver. I have not heard about her so I guess she is still alive. 

All local kids, so sad. What they were doing out there at 2AM is still a 
mystery. And being totally stupid. I have heard nothing about alcohol so don’t 
know that aspect.

Re: [MBZ] Something you don’t see often

2021-07-16 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
I flew first class on the upper deck a few times on BA transatlantic flights. 
That was very nice as there were few seats up there, it was like a little club. 
This was long before 9/11 so the pilots would leave the cockpit door open and 
welcomed short visits to the flight deck. The bevvie selection was always quite 
Impressive too.  I had no issues with extensively sampling the offerings... 
start off in the Concorde lounge then roll onboard champagne glass in hand... 
the way airline travel should be...

I noticed early on that most of the passengers in business and first were 
pretty much assholes and were not particularly pleasant travel companions so I 
made it a point to chat up the FAs and hang with them some on the longer 
flights.  It’s amazing how much better the experience was and how much fun it 
was to have those interactions with regular folks doing what was mostly a 
pretty boring job. Not to mention that won a bit of special treatment which 
some of the other passengers noticed...

Re: [MBZ] OT - Electrical Distribution Panel Relocation

2021-07-14 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
Is the cable from the pole to the meter and outdoor shutoff and thence the new 
panel good for 200A?  All that might need to be upgraded. I can’t remember the 
size of that cable - 6/0?  8/0?

A new panel relocated from the old panel location will need to connect to the 
old cables in the house that are coming from the old panel. Those extensions to 
the new panel have to be connected in boxes to the old wiring. The code says 
how many can be connected in what size box. That’s likely to be the painful 
point. 

I put in 2-200A panels and shut offs when I built my addition.  In the old part 
of the house the old panel was not up to code so I had to replace it and run 
new cable from one new 200A shutoff to the new replacement 200A panel. I also 
put in a new 200A panel in the addition coming off a second 200A shutoff. Both 
shut offs are outside next to a new 300A meter that fed the new 200A panels 
through the 200A shutoffs. 

The power company ran a new buried cable in conduit from the pole to the meter. 
I wired off the meter box to each new shutoff using a connector that attaches 
to the lug on the output side of the meter, that had 2 wire connectors, one for 
each shutoff. 2 hots and neutral and grounds. I forget what the deal is with 
neutrals and grounds and where they separate. 

Hope that gives you some idea.

[MBZ] OT storm

2021-07-09 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
So this TS Elsa came through here Wednesday night. 5in rain. There was a (near) 
Tornado a few miles away but didn’t seem to be much wind here. I found a huge 
tree branch, like the top of a water oak tree which are very brittle and go 
bad,  had fallen out in the dog back yard area, managed to miss the garage. So 
I went out this afternoon and cut it up and got it out of there. Done. 

About 15 min later I hear this crash out there, and another big branch had 
fallen right close to where I was cutting up the other one. It’s a bit breezy 
today so I guess this wind finished the job. Glad it didn’t finish me or the

[MBZ] Mercedes-Benz Vans adds $53M delivery center to SC manufacturing campus

2021-07-05 Thread Buggered Benzmail via Mercedes
Mercedes-Benz Vans adds $53M delivery center to SC manufacturing campus
By David Wren dw...@postandcourier.com
Published Sun Jul 04, 2021 11:15 AM EDT
NORTH CHARLESTON — With sales on a record pace and a new electrified Sprinter 
van on the way, the Mercedes-Benz Vans plant at Palmetto Commerce Park is 
investing $53 million to prepare newly made vehicles for distribution.


The new marshalling yard adjacent to the Sprinter factory is a 50-acre holding 
and staging area that includes 30 loading lanes for vehicle-carrying trucks, 50 
charging stations for the new e-Sprinter, a van washing area and an office 
building. The site also includes a workshop with 22 van inspection and prep 
stations

Previously, finished vans were stored in a partially paved site while waiting 
to be moved to customers. 

"These enhancements to the new marshalling yard will streamline operations to 
better allow the Mercedes-Benz Vans team to deliver premium quality vans to 
dealers, resulting in an exceptional customer delivery service and overall 
purchase experience from start to finish," the company said in a written 
statement.

The vanmaker also said it has signed a deal with Baltimore-based Auto 
Warehousing Co. for all vehicle movements from the North Charleston plant to 
customers in hopes of "streamlining the overall handover process."

The latest investment at the plant coincides with a boom in commercial van 
sales, driven largely by e-commerce retailers like Amazon that use the vehicles 
for their last-mile deliveries. Mercedes-Benz said its first-quarter sales 
topped 11,658 vans — 55 percent better than the same period a year ago. Demand 
for battery-powered delivery vans also is on the rise, prompting the company to 
announce its local campus will build the e-Sprinter for North American 
customers starting in the second half of 2023.

"The future of mobility is electric in the transport sector, especially in the 
last-mile delivery segment," Marcus Breitschwerdt, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, 
said in a statement. "Our share of battery-electric vehicles is constantly 
growing."

The marshalling yard is the latest phase in the plant's $500 million-plus 
expansion, which started with a 2015 announcement that the site would convert 
to a full production facility. Previously, the factory handled the final 
assembly of partially built vans imported to the U.S in "kits" from Germany. 
The expansion has included a new production line, final assembly building, body 
shop and paint shop.

In January, the nation's first Sprinter dealership, part of the Baker Motor 
Co., opened in Summerville.
