New Benz owner

Just bought a 1981 300SD for $450 from my freind who could not get it started in the cold weather. After looking on this site for advice, I changed the glow plugs put in a new battery in and it started right up.
I have a list of things which need work so I am looking for advice for service and where to buy parts. So far I found www.arizonahaus.com, any other places?

It was shifting hard so I flushed the trany and changed the filter which helped that problem.

Installed new rear brake rotors and pads.

In the future I want to change the fuel filter and gas lines because the old ones are not biodeseil compatable. Where to buy compatible lines for injector return lines?

Also the water pump has some residue so that may need to be replaced along with all of the hoses.

Plus most of the rubber boots (CV, ball joints, and drive discs) have some sort of cracking....

This car is a project
