I don't see 280SLs either which is why I asked location. I assume it is a US-spec automatic? That isn't going to work in your favor when it comes to resale. You might get another estimate on the rust repair, etc, it shouldn't be the same people doing it. I suspect a body shop will come to where the car is.
Will it require a re-paint after the rust repair? Factor that into the cost also.
R107 cars are abundantly available and can be money pits sometimes. I think there is an R107 forum that might be able to better advise you...
