I learned to know Timo via Stefan. He's from Finland and has a huge experience as well in old Mercs. Or according to Stefan's words: he's outstanding in what he does.
He was also pretty reluctant to take on this project, for two reasons. It's a bit of a challenge to do this "special" body work and he just didn't know me. Am I one of those "customers", who pressures and just makes trouble? After some skype conferences (and I assume some words from Stefan ;-) ), he agreed to take it on.
After the cars were shipped to Finland, my wife and I flew up there and met him and his lovely partner. I just state here, that it clicked and he's an absolute enthusiast (or idiot) like me ;-)
I do hope, that some day he visits us in Germany and we both can share a ride in this pickup!
