All this is well and good, but it will all pale in comparision to a severly rusted rear suspension monocoque frame restoration, if that is where yours is rusted the worst, front floorpans alone are nothing, but if the rear suspension falls out, more than your butt will hit the ground, THAT is THE place to look closely at on W113 cars as well as the rockers, on all pre 80's MB's.

1990 S-124 3.0 Sport Touring Wagen. 218K + Miles
1987 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 53K miles !

1987 BMW 325 IS M-tech
1976 Jaguar XJ12C 5.3 V12 Coupe

Well after a brief scare, I had them check the suspension. Looks good. Previous owner had greased it up pretty well.
