Deal done on the 124 coupe, hand shaken and now I have a 201 for sale......

Onwards and upwards the best way to go, you deserve it Colin. :D:D

Do not forget the the bottom swivels fall off on a 124 just as easily as on the 201:rolleyes:

I parked next to this today. I'd like to say I spent ages drooling over it, but I was whisked away all to quickly by my impatient lift, who claimed to have been waiting ages in the boiling sun...

If it is a keeper Colin, I would suggest taking front and rear screens out, treat any rust. I done ours six years ago. Hope this helps

Must be draughty and cold Brain :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Was that to me????

Would another build thread be wanted alto I haven't finished this one????

The 124 is a far better bodied car than the 201, no rust and the underside is like a 5 year car so a lot more easier build..........
