Cool Early R129

Hi everyone. I'm in the process of buying an early R129 300SL which has been stood for ages. Although apparently in generally good condition, and the engine starts, and car drives, inside is very damp, and the electrics are all playing silly bu88ers, fluctuating in time to rise and fall in revs on engine. Any suggestions on a) danger spots for corrosion, and b) faults on electics?
