w123 - new to the world of mercedes

I recently picked up a 1983 300D. It currently has 217k and I believe I am the third or fourth owner. The original owner had it until around 1996 (183k) and was always serviced at the dealership it was purchased from (according to the service books I have). The car is pretty good running order except the the rust. I have been a long time vw owner and do have done of work on them but I have never seen a car with so many vacuum lines in my life.
