1986 560SL needs minor work lo miles one owner SoCal $6900 obo

I bought this car from the original owner when I ran a body shop, as it was hit on the passenger side quarter and door (did not damage lower sill at all-no frame pull done, was hit by an SUV at approx 30 mph) replaced quarter and door, painted and put together best possible-but I am no longer with the body shop, and by no means a MB tech, so I am kind of lost on how to finish it. The problems are as listed
1. Idle will not drop below 1600/1700 rpm-runs fine otherwise, good power, but way too high
2. Hardtop is stuck-I cant get the rear pin out, so the rear panels that need to be put back in place are in the trunk.
3. Heater doesnt work-a/c is cold but no heat

and some trim pieces are missing (pass quarter molding, sill plate plastic, door need adjustments to close right, hardtop doesnt latch all the way on pass side

But it is a clean title and records are all stamped from Simonson Mercedes in LA other than the little finish work it needs it shows that someone really loved it and took care of it (prior owner retired Marine)

I need money and will be moving at the end of the year, so its gotta go asap
Located in Lake Elsinore, CA
thanks for looking!
