1986 560 sl electric and back seat questions
I am new to the forum - so please redirect me if this is not the best place to post.
I've been salavating over my friend's uncle's 560 sl for about 10 years. He's out of the country, and this thing has been sitting in my buddy's garage - not entirely unused, but begging to be ridden.
He's finally ready to sell it to me.
I took it for a test drive yesterday and have some concerns. I wanted to come to ask around and get some advice before purchasing.
1- electric is wonky. SOMETHING is draining the battery. It needs to be disconnected after each use. If we can't find the problem, this will break the deal for me. Also, the radio, the antenna, and the passenger side mirror do not work. Is the electric a problem on these cars, or do you all feel that once fixed we should be good? (I'm sure it depends upon the specifics here... I'm just looking for a general sense.)
2- I have a small child. Are aftermarket seats with seat belts for the back bench okay? She's still in a booster. Am I insane for even asking this?
Thanks guys... looking forward to buying this and participating in the forum as a happy driver. But I don't want to buy a headache.
