Red face Restoring a 240d in NW Florida

Hi everyone out there. I'm new to Mercedes and to restoring cars. I bought a 1983 240d for my daughter. It's in pretty good shape, body-wise and interior wise, but the car is 10 years older than she is, so I'm sure there is some work that can be done to make it 'like new'.

I'm hoping to meet some fellow enthusiasts to get this car to great shape for her. The car only has a little over 80,000 miles on this engine, so it should last a long long time.

Thanks

Wow - it's nice to get the help on this. I'm glad to find a group that's as enthusiastic about restoring as I want to be.

I'll be in that 123 discussion a bunch. Thanks again.
