'80 300sd

hello site. i just got a 1980 300sd for $650. the body is in great condition, and she runs well, with just 206000 miles on it. i know i need a radiator flush and some other things, she wont turn off all the time, no dash electric, and turn signals arent working, so there's that.. i've been combing the forums here and finding lots of advice.. so thanks!

I also have a 1980 300sd, I had a problem with it turning off before from accidentally pulling a vacuum line lose. The line I knocked lose was behind the air conditioning panel when I installed a stereo.
The electrical is just a pain in the butt usually, especially getting under the dash. It will probably take patients to fix that one. I don't have any good tips for that one.
Do you have any mechanical experience, or are you good with electric repair?
I am new to these forums too, and have had my car for nearly two years now. My dad is a mechanic with his own which is the only reason I still have this car running.
