My name is Greg, I have a (Betty) Benz

So I'm dinging around on Craigslist, looking at cars and find this 1989 190E for a paltry $300. I don't mind a project or two so I bought it. Now the wife wants to name it Miss Betty and is chomping at the bit to take Miz "Betty Benz" out for a spin.

So Betty, as a project is going to need some cosmetic work to her face, she tried kissing a deer and lost a few teeth in her grille. She also lost her cool and blew a gasket, so I'm going to do a head job on her. As Betty is the first of the family Benz to join our family here, I'll be trolling the boards here getting some advice and asking the tough questions she is too afraid to ask for herself.

Welcome to Benzworld, head job on this model is quite straight forward.
