Post New Member, New project

So I get these wild ideas periodically when I run into good deals on cars to adopt them as little pet projects. My last one was a '91 Celica I fixed up in 2003 (my daily driver). My most recent as of a week ago, a black 1992 500SL with it's share of issues, which I will definitely be using the forums for picking up tips. Here's a list of my to-do's:

Replace Crankshaft position sensor - car dies for a few hours after hot soak. Might help smooth out the rough idle (fingers crossed) & the car cams a bit.
Front convertible top hydraulics - already shipped to Dennis for rebuild.
Replace broken Becker Stereo (the wiring...dear God!) w/ modern unit.
New tires.
Replace climate control unit w/ one w/ working buttons...all of them.

I've only been surfing the forums for a week now and they've already saved me over $200. Thanks!!
