Restoring W115 300D Need parts

Ok, I'm going to start working on my 1975 300D. I know that chances are i'm going to end spending more on restoring it than what the car is worth.

Well any way I am interested in finding a good source to get parts for my W115 300D. The motor and transmission are out of the car. I am hoping to get the car up and running in 2 weeks then it will go off to the body shop for a fresh coat of paint.

Just a friendly recommendation, but I would leave the engine and tranny out if I were getting it painted (cost permitting). These cars have color matched engine bays and this would be a nice touch.

It is the antagonists that place the clamps of knowledge on the nipples of ignorance.

If you are going to do anything with the interior of that car (seats, carpets,headliner) email this guys at KUSH213@YAHOO.COM they have everything with very reasonable cost. They use original materials and are very helpful.
