Post Restoration ideas NEEDED

Hi guys. Anyone can give me good ideas on how to restore a 1971, 280S MB. Are there good web sites I could refer too? The car is not so bad actually.
Thanks a lot!

You really need to provide more information, like rust repair, mechanical restoration, interior etc.

Here's an example of a restoration job

1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL 6.9

Near Manassas Va. '65 220S, 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, '99 Volvo V70, '72 350SL 4 speed

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