Thumbs up My Christmas Present

My wife found a 1973 MB 450 SL in need of some work so she made a Christmas present out of it - pretty nice gal. I started by finding and browsing this forum, taking pictures, and spending one full afternoon poking around the engine bay. The engine, transmission and brakes are in good working order. I found three open vacuum lines, one mystery wire and a bracket bolt that snapped off. I have started to make a priority list. Thanks to moderators of R107 for organizing the starting stickys. I have downloaded the .pdfs for the manuals and have already started using them. I will investigate the subframe reinforcement issue soon.

This is my second project car; first was a 1967 Camaro SS/RS. I look forward to this project and hope I can make a contribution to this forum.
