No, it's not, as long as you fabricate the tool. I made mine out of a piece of scrap oak and it worked just fine. A bit frightening when brandishing a big hammer with a piece of oak right next to a freshly painted finish. That being said there are those out there who might not be inclined to

Is it nice? How cheap are you letting it go? My 190D has about had it, the tin worm will not be denied any longer. I'm considering a new W123 if I could find one cheap. -Curt From: Darren Marshall via Mercedes mercedes@okiebenz.com To: Mercedes Discussion List mercedes@okiebenz.com Cc:
