1987 300E 74K first MB.
After 23 Citroens it is hard to drive an MB, even a nice one, but it goes over the bumps better than I would have thought. In two months I have been hit twice in the right front and am again looking for a bumper cover and just bought lights. Tsk. Funny things are the rear left door motor does not run, the driver's door lock bottoming switch does not connect and #1 fuse which does the rear window, rear headrests, dash lights and lighter blows when you turn the ignition on, showing a short somewhere after the ignition switch. I guess these will eventually get sorted out.
I am taking care of the flaking clearcoat by feathering the edges and overspraying with clear plastic paint since I know it will adhere well, is UV proof and will sand, level-up and buff out ok. Beats paying for a paint job immediately. I'm in SE Florida.
