1. Progress of the project.
As weather conditions improved we started our driving trials to resolve all possible technical problems of the restored car. Each and any assembling unit had been carefully restored and tested before installation though we should ensure whole system together is working appropriately.
During test drive it was noticed that reverse light switch has internal problem which sometimes creates shortcuts burning fuse feeding all control systems. Such switch was not available new from parts so we had to make adaptor for use of available suitable switch.
Supplied new exhaust pipes was not of completely correct shape adequate to 300SE and sometimes hit the body, so we had to remove whole exhaust piping and redo it to achieve proper fit avoiding contact of pipes with body on road bumps.
