W114 Coupe Questions

I have a 1972 250C and need to know how do you get the chrome strips on the roof off. Prepping the car for a paint job and need to take them off. Also does anyone rebuild the power window regulators for the rear quarter windows. Mercedes-Benz no longer makes them and mine dont work. Also if anyone is looking for good solid 250 sedan for parts or needs parts let me know. Have a 1971 250 Sedan blue interior, very good condition.

Thanks

Take the regulators out and clean them with vinegar and then acetone. I did this with my 108's rear regulator, and after re-greasing the joints, it worked well.

The plastic center strips slide out. There are 3 or 4 rivets beneath the strips. Drill them out but be careful and don't apply a lot of pressure on the drill unless you like ventilated head liners.

...On a related note, how do you rivet them back in? Pop rivets? Does headliner need to come out? One of my roof rails has a rivet loose and I need to re-secure it.
