This is what I have learnt so far with my finnie sedans and coupe.
People on the Heckflosse mailing list recommend someone over there called Import Baron. Front and back screen seals for a w110 sedan were $40 each. I think he is on Ebay, but here is a phone number that came up in a search in the mailling list - ...(800)259-1125. Being in Australia, I have no idea if that number makes sense or not!
I have heard that his screen seals and trunk seals are fine.
I have also been told that for side glass seals and those fuzzy strips, then use OEM stuff. I got all my stuff for my finnie sedan from Ton Hanson at the MB Classic Centre in Irvine CA. You get a discount if you are in an MB club. Some things are not cheap though - you had better hope that you don't have to change the quarter glass seals on the doors - they cost a bomb!
I will send a private email to your adddress with all the sedan parts I got, the number required, and their prices from Tom. Keep in mind that some things will be different for the coupe, but it will give you an idea of what prices are like. I sent this sheet to Tom, he gave me the part numbers where I could only give him a description, and gave me prices.

PS - did you have any luck finding out how people lift the cars on a 2 post hoist? I got no answers...
