Juergen from Mercedes

Juergen from Mercedes was my rescue option, when the first company (we know it all) failed to do anything.

He is born 1960 (so five years older than me), did his apprenticeship at Mercedes (started with installing power steering into W115's when he was young) and he knows just about everything about old Mercs.

It took some convincing at first to let him have a go at this project, because he thought I'm a customer that throws the car in front of him and says "do it". But we started working together and somehow developed a great respect for each other.

I have to thank him for helping on this project, making it all possible and teaching me heaps of things regarding a car.
