Talking Fixing up a 1981 300SD

Hi. Just bought my first Mercedes. A classic 1981 300SD. Think I'm going to really like this car. It needs a few things. Hopefully this forum will help me to do right by this car and still let me afford a couple manicures a month.

What I'm looking for right now is a windshield washer fluid reservoir and cap. I also need a set of new tires and a spare. I live in the Pacific Northwest so need to learn what are the best tires for snow traction for this car (non-stud). On the car now are a set of Goodyear Regatta 2, I stopped on a tiny amount of snow the other day and wondered if I'd get going again after unexpected tire spin and stuckness. (my other car is an all wheel drive wagon so I'm not used to spinning in snow). I'd be oh so grateful for suggestions

Looking forward to learning from all the owners of these older 300SDs out there.
