First Benz: 1985 300D

Just bought a 1985 300D - 155K miles. Beautiful gray finish. Perfect interior. Still has the original 1985 first aid kit intact.

I've got to fix a squeaky suspension (front driver wheel well squeaks on bumps), passenger door lock, and get a new antenna - and that's about it. I'm looking for advice on maintenance, repairs, etc.
