1980 300 sd newbie

I just purchased a 1980 300 SD. I am on TDI club and I have found it to be extremely useful when fixing my jetta. i hope this forum will be of equal value. I cant wait to start tinkering with the new to me benz. on the list as of now is brakes to be changed, vacuum lines to be checked, drivers side inner door handle to be fixed or replaced, check all fluids, run a can of diesel purge through the injectors, and some other minor things.

If anyone has any suggestions of what to do or where to find parts I would be grateful of any advice. Thanks.

Welcome to Benzworld, when looking for parts it helps if you put your location in your profile.
