I've been working on editing another episode as time allows (which lately has not been very often). In the meantime I'd been enjoying driving the Benz about almost daily. I knew it had a slow coolant leak somewhere, but it got bad over the weekend, to the point that it was nearly overheating. I parked it Saturday and had some time Sunday to check into it. Turns out there are hairline cracks in both of the plastic tanks on the radiator. A new radiator is quite expensive for the turbo model, so I'm going to contact Griffin and see what it would cost for them to make me an all aluminum one.

Finally finished the latest episode of the Benz Chronicles. Holy crap was there a lot of editing on this to get it cut down to a reasonable length. Almost 20gb of footage to dig through.

I've been working on getting the radiator, water pump, etc. replaced in mine. It's been slow going, just don't have a lot of time to dink with it at the moment. I pulled the air filter out last night and found 4 huge wasp nests in the airbox. Luckily they were all dead, but it should breathe a lot better not being clogged up with stupid bugs lol.
