    Tonights Program at 9 is the SLK

    Its stated it;s the cheapest SLK in the country and Ed;s on a tight budget so
    I Wonder how Ed will deal with the rust or will Mike find a rust free car,

    Should be interesting.

    Sorry never gave that a thought.

    To be honest i would have thought that anyone that watches the program would have known what side it was on but for those that don't its on SKY Discovery.

    SLK parts are cheap! :shock: Would a typical punter get all that for £400 ?

    four new wheels/tyres, supercharger. n/S headlanm and Radio, these were from Dronsfield. £400

    master cylinder leaked, rather worryingly they replaced it with a second hand one for £50.

    Still some rust to sort out

    I wonder how long the rust repairs will last ? before the new owner has it come through again.

    I must admit the underneath of the car looked terrible everything was rust riddled.

    There's no way edd is charging £120 a hour like m b or wheeler dealer would be bankrupt by now ,,.

    I reckon edd gets around £1 a hour .

    Wish he was my next door neighbour :)

    The point of Wheeler Dealers is to show how a home enthusiast can do things. I doubt any members here cost their own labour when talking about the cost of fixing things themselves :D

    Whilst Wheeler Dealers is contrived to some extent, I still thought last night's show was worth a watch.

    By the way, the parts from Dronsfield were £450, not £400.

    It is meant to show that a home enthusiast can achieve but how many of us have access to a lift and 3 racks of snapon tools?

    I still love the show no matter what :)
