Old guy with "new" 300SL

Greetings from the San Francisco Bay area! Just purchased a 1991 300SL - Smoke Silver/Palamino, 153K, garage kept, superb condidtion. This is not my first SL (but it's the first one that has working climate control!). Years ago I had 1956 190SL (sure wish i had that one back!). Also owned a 1970 280SL (wouldn't mind having that one back either). Had a 1975 450SL (wouldn't want that one back) and just sold my 1979 450SL - which had it's share of problems.
I'm enjoying the 300 immensely . . . . . but, of course, there a few "minor" issues (the soft top works great - thank goodness!). Been looking for thread for my problems - but haven't found one. At times when driving - the low coolant warning light comes on. The first time it happened, I immediately stopped and checked coolant level - it was normal - any thoughts? Also a few times at night the "burned out bulb" warning light comes on for a short time and then goes out. I'm assuming these are just some minor electrical gremlins but perhaps someone out there might have some input.
