1956 190 SL Restoration

A relative in North Carolina has a 1956 190 SL that she has been storing since the early seventies. She is getting the facts together for starting a restoration.

Does anyone know of any resources out there to help her start planning? And has anyone made any restoration mistakes they want to pass on so we can avoid them.

Advise her to sell the car to me for $1000 and I'll handle all that headache[:D]
