Engine Rebuild on 280CE + Others

Hello, we have too many project cars and need to get on with finishing a project or 5. So, we have 2 x 280CE's (W114) that need full reconditioning on the engines. We have rebuilt many an engine, its the parts we need help with. Does anyone know where we can purchase Pistons, big end/main bearings, gasket sets, water pumps, valve guides etc, etc. Obviously trotting down to the local MB dealer is an option but we dont have a small country to sell to pay for the markup that the dealers put on. Does anyone have any suggestions on where in the world (literally) we can purchase these items from at a resonable rate.

Also in need of replacement floor pans and sills.

PS we also have a 350 and 450SL to reco, so the same place should be able to help for this as well.

Any help greatfully accepted, thanks in advance.

Metric Motors should have what you're looking for, parts-wise. No idea if the prices are in your ballpark or not.
