coming on board

I recently purchased a 94 SL500 as a project car and am in the process of resurrecting the dead. I read somewhere that there is nothing in the world more expensive than a cheap Mercedes and I am well into understanding the concept. Fortunately Mercedes makes a lot of things I have encountered thus far repairable if you have the ability tools and patience. Examples, front top latch hydraulic cylinders approximately $180.00 each. Couple of bucks worth of o rings good as new. $800.00 engine wiring loom 80 dollars worth of wire from Then there are other things like the soft top module and basic engine and suspension parts. All in all it will be nice when done but more money than I anticipated. Hopefully I can find help along the way from the Mercedes forums.
