Hello from New York State
Hello everyone. I am new to the site and have just purchased a 1972 280se 4.5 which I love! One issue with this car is the heater/fan rubber levers getting a little rotted which I have to replace. Does anyone have any advice as to where to purchase these and whether it is something I can put in myself? Also I am in need of front shocks. Other than that the car is great. It could use a paint job to restore it to it's original glory. The color is maroon/burgundy. I am not sure how to find the exact paint color to tell the shop when it is time to repaint. Any suggestions on what to do for a tune up? I was told not to get a the valves adjusted.?
Anyway, that's about it. I live in Rockland county NY and look forward to enjoying the car.
