Looking for an R129
Nigel,

Like everyone else here, over the years I've worked on my back with a crawler (or a piece of cardboard), plus a set of ramps or floor jack and stands - and through every variation of these you can imagine. I'm approaching 60 and recently decided to do something foolish and bought myself an old Roller, which I've admired from afar for a long time (and that my grandson promptly named Tootsie because of her rich brown color).

Anyway, while I long ago learned there's nothing more expensive than buying the cheapest example of a used car and thus, had diligently sought out and bought the nicest one I could find. Not unexpectedly there were still a few things that needed doing toward keeping a near 50 year old car on the road. With that, I splurged on the lift because I decided I didn't want to work on my back any more - do hookers reach this point also?

Meanwhile, the only real sacrifice was making room for Tootsie because I wanted to keep her in the garage next to Mercy (Lynn's MB wagon - her third because she loves the things). My mistake, however, is having a two car garage because I know good and well I'm car queer (and cars tend to multiply). Anyway, I'm fortunate in marrying the right woman almost 40 years ago because she's fine with living where we have a bit of elbow room. This means a large building for my needs.

Thing is, the building is already full because I run my business out of it. Then it occurred to me if I had a lift the sports car could live on it until I have time to put her back on the road (whereupon having just a 2-car garage will once again become an issue). In the meantime, storing Lulu in my building means Tootsie can live in the house - plus I have a lift for when I want to do something ;>)

I use LED fog light, just like the ones found in modern cars. it's better and less work on the installation.

If I put the ballast, canbus inside the projector housing, would there be any problems due to heat? Also, on the passenger side, is it gonna be too close to the SBC to cause any interference?
Thank you!!

Thank you!!
itís not advisable to put those components inside housing as they rely on engine air flow cooling.

Just ordered the DDM Tuning - DDM Plus HID CANBUS Kit H7 55w. Already have the metal clips needed. Hopefully this will work OK!

e350 w211
hid low beam kit from XENON HID.

To put it short.. I also purchased a harness relay because for anti flicker. You install it with the ballasts and bulb. Ground wire and power wire... however with the harness relay installed it flickers on/off when lights on.

Without the harness relay they do work. No messages.

i grounded on left front strut power and since the batter is in the trunk I used 12v from front fuse box power post... what may be my issue? Is that a bad spot for power perhaps? Does the 2009 e350? Have enough power for the ballast that it doesnít need a harness relay? Idk please and thank you. Any help appreciated.
