Father Daughter project

Hello everyone,

My daughter and I have embarked on a light project. It is a 1990 190E that is a good solid driver but needs a few cosmetic things fixed.

My daughter is 17 and this is her first car. As her name is Mercedes she's pretty excited to have it! This is my second experience with a MB but the previous was with my dad. His experience wasn't so good so I'm hoping this one will turn out better. So far so good!

Here are a list of things that need to be done on the car:

Drivers mirror needs to be replaced.
Power seats move forward and backward but they no longer recline and the power head rests do not work. They did when we got the car but quit working on Sunday.
Right front fender has a dent by the headlight
Right front door is dented
Interior is very dirty and we're working on cleaning it.
The drivers seat has a tear
The passenger front power window is not working
The drivers rear power window is not working
The cruise does not work
There is some light surface rust and peeling paint that needs to be addressed.
The front bumper top trim is broken and needs to be replaced.

We've already acquired a parts car and that should take care of the door, fender, mirror, and bumper problems. The rest will be a learn as we go kind of thing!

We're both looking forward to getting to know more about this car as well as getting to know some of you folks here at benzworld!

OH, we're from the Green Bay Wisconsin area
