anyone stripping a w108?

afternoon all,

I'm busy with a 72 280se restoration here in south africa and need a few of the wooden door trim pieces to complete the job.

what i'm after is:

front right & front left. Ideally it's the top bits of wood and the wood that goes down past the quarter window.

If anyone has they'd be willing to part with, or know anywhere I might be able to source it from, that would be great.

Hi, I don't have the pieces but was curious if you need the pieces or if you have some but they are bad? You could always have the wood refinished if you can't locate replacements.

I have thought about that but the pieces I require the most (drivers door) are beyond repair.
