I have one in excellent condition from my '87 300D (from the no-sun state). I'll be home this weekend and will dig through the boxes.

I've noticed that. The cars in the north have good paint, plastic, and rubber parts, south have good metal.

Actually, my dear beast has seen Me., NH and New York City of all places...She has been down here in FL. since '04 for the most part. Neither of us care much for the 1400+ mile trek up any more. What was interesting was the strip down of the beast in '08 and I mean everything and low and behold there wasn't one sq. inch of penetrating rust anywhere. Fairly remarkable me thinks... Most all the rubber parts did become brittle and have been or are being replaced in an ongoing effort...Ah the bushings....PIA

Front end is done and moving to the rear as we speak....Sub frame in it's entirety ain't exactly cheap either....BUT she does love the Bilstein products along with the Beck Arnley deposits....

Yes, my 87 lived its life in TN, I've replaced most everything in the suspension and the interior. Paint shop next.

Suspect I will have some questions for you given your experience. Perhaps you would send me your e-mail and I will show you my prep-up for the body...
No, my guy would NOT let me into the paint booth...Long story but I'm little disappointed three years later.....
