My first Benz -1999 E320 fixer upper

Hi all, I have recently bought my fisrt MB - a little bit of an unconventional way. It was involved in an accident and I bought it at an insurance auction. What got my attention was low mileage for the year (56K miles on this 1999). Paid $5K for the car, auction fees, title, registration, sales tax.

Now to the damage: passenger side was hit: needs both doors, and either have the center pillar and rocker panel pulled/aligned or replaced completely. I will see what the body shop will recommend.

As I am going through the various posts here I find a lot of great info on remove/replace components which I will have to do - so thatnks for all your contributions to the forum. I hope one day I can contribute as well.

Any comments are welcome.
Thanks and great to join this forum.
