Total MB newbie

Hi all! My name is Ted Poe from Evansville, IN. I have recently acquired (thanks to my beautiful new wife) the responsibility for the care and maintenance of her 1986 SL 560. It was a birthday present from her late husband some 10 years ago. As such, the vehicle has much sentimental value to her. It has only seen about a thousand miles in the last 10 years and is in need of some serious maintenance! I am currently replacing the entire braking system (all rubber lines-4 calipers-4 rotors-master cyl), all the rubber lines at fuel pump (leaking), and the tires although they all have tall rubber - I just don't trust tires that old.

Any suggestions from you folks would be greatly appreciated!
