Restore 76 280c W114 - parts?

I'm considering buying a 76 280c that is in good shape but it could use some new parts including interior and exterior trim, headlight lenses, map pockets, etc.

Not looking to make a show car, just a really nice monthly driver.

Where is the best place to get new or like-new parts for this 76 w114?

Anyone replaced the horse hair with real foam?

Any hints on re-chroming the trim pieces?

Is there any way to make the old white mb-tex look like new?

Although the name says Volvo, this website also sells parts for many other brands including MB. So far, I have not had problems with orders from them. Parts are name brands and often original equipment brand.
