Glad to be here

I have been a fan for years! My wife is on her 3rd ML350, which is very unusual because she never drove a car more than 2 years w/o trading in and never drove the same model,so that told me something... So I have been looking for my dream ride for 18 months and friday became the proud new owner of a 2004 G500 silver with 77k miles. I spent the whole weekend detailing and with a few minor cosmetic repaires it will look like new, and I mean new.
I have several questions so here we go:
1. best place to buy parts, I plan on several upgrades
2. any suggestions on how to recondition wheel wells and undercarrage to look like new or close to new as DIY project
3. Is it possible to put newer model parts on older model G500's such as headlights, climate controls and command centers in center console? Thinking about 2008 or newer to my 2004?

I look forward to hours of socializing with my fellow benz friends :-)
