New to MB with an '85 G Wagen 300GD

Well, we decided on a bit of a whim to give this thing a try. I've been wrenching on cars for a number of years and done both on and off road vehicles. I've gone through VWs, and then moved on to BMWs, and now this will be our first Mercedes.

We moved to Germany about a year ago and my wife found this beast and thought it would be pretty cool to bring home when we come back. I know NOTHING of these vehicles other than the reputation- heck, I've never even worked on a diesel before. But we may look to build it to replace the rock crawler Jeep we sold just before we moved to tackle the Rubicon eventually. We've got some minor issues to sort out and I've got to find some service manuals so work can commence.

Looking forward to learning a bit about the elusive G Wagen around here.
