Newbie-Old Guy with a 380SEL

Hi Benzworld Members. I just joined recently. I'm in Pittsburgh, PA & recently bought a 1983 380SEL to restore & drive around. Before now, I had a 1974 450SLC which I really liked. I love to tinker with cars. I have a program I bought online (probably pirated from discontinued Benz factory repair software) which lists a potload of Benz models. If anyone needs some info & I can provide it, fell free to ask.

I have a question about reattaching the soft rear window interior trim band which goes from side to side & has the rear dome light in it. Is this attached with clips and / or adhesive ?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

hey kencc, since i'm not very technical i'm sure others could answer your question better, i'll just take this opportunity to welcome you to the forums! lots of really knowledgeable people here. i'm currently in between MB's right now as i just lost my 90 420sel to engine failure. so i may either find another motor, or buy another w126. so welcome and enjoy this site!!

Yes Honey! Thats how they sound! Its a diesel!
