Newbie with a 560 SEL

Hi all, new to the forum. A lil background, I live near Austin, work offshore with remote submarines and offroading is my hobby. Got my '89 560 SEL off a friend with almost 180k on the clock. Planning on keeping it original for the most part, but I have a habit of performance mods to everything so there will be some improvements.

As bought with a dead battery, 2 flats and a busted window regulator.

Road trip to Va.

Euro light treatment. More for the actual lighting than looks, but I do like the way they look.

So that's mine and I've been happy with it. Still needs some exhaust work and suspension. Planning on refinishing the wheels as opposed to the normal upsizing.

Here's my toy, '92 4Runner lotsa things done to it and it goes almost anywhere I point it and hit the loud pedal.
