Proud new owner

Hey all,

I'm the proud new owner of a 1982 300SD. I also have a 1988 300E that I've been working on restoring back to her prime and she's coming along pretty nicely, however back to the 300SD. Has a few bumps and bruises but nothing too horrible a little buff and wax won't cure I'm sure...well maybe the exception of the little rust spots on the wheel wells. Very beautiful car though, can't wait to get new ball joints and get her inspected for the road! She has the OM617 engine with around 173k miles on her...any particulars I should be aware of other than the shockingly low miles which sort of scares me...hoping just because it wasn't run too often and not because it hasn't been able to run often on account of maltreatment.
