1971 280SL Coupe

Hi,

I'm just beginning the restoration process of my newly acquired 1971 280SL Coupe. I live in Orange County California. I'm looking for help or recommendations for some minor engine work, parts, painting and redoing the interior etc.

Any suggestions for vendors, companies, where to take the car etc.?

Also please let me know if there are any good websites out there.

Larry

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
