Post Hi Everyone /wave

Just wanted to say hi, I have been lurking for a couple weeks while stalking W126's. I finally found what I felt was the "right" one, and made the leap.
Although I wouldn't call it a "basket case", it is VERY needy, so I will be asking for help/picking the brains of this fine group of aficionados.
I just got her back from the body shop yesterday - paint and rust holes - and on Thursday the new windshield will be installed. It was supposed to be last Friday, but the body work ran long and I had to re-schedule. Next will be the 847 little things that keep her from being the gorgeous lady she was nearly three decades ago, and I'm hoping you guys (and probably gals too) can help steer me in the right directions. I am a hands-on guy, for one, because I am pretty handy, and for two, I am pretty broke, so I will be trying to do anything I can myself, rather than pay someone else to do it.
So... Thanks for this great forum, I will be assembling a list of projects shortly, and I'll try to get some pics up later. I should have taken some before pics of the body, but it slipped my mind.
