Post From Bahrain - R129 SL500 1990

Hi guys!

I've recently joined the community, I'm based out of Bahrain - its a small island in the Arabian Gulf.
I've recently acquired an SL500 1990 as a restoration project.
Any one have any ideas and how I should start off please feel free to drop me suggestions...
The car is in great shape body wise however the interior is a disaster - I will be re-doing the interiors of the car.
The engine is very clean and stable however the biggest problem with the car is starting it - once started it runs just fine... (suggestions on this problem will be really helpful fyi... I've read all messages on the starting problem)
