It would take a bunch of work, but is doable. That SL has a M104.98 motor. The motor was only available in 90-92 300SL's and 300CE's in North America. One critical and specific part of the electrical system is the EZL. Nothing from any other model will work. All of the other electrical components will be needed as well as the CC amp, brake/clutch switches. Instrument cluster and differential. Get the big brakes off all 4 corners as well.
Take a deep breath and go for it. The 300E would be pretty stealthy.

I figured there would be wiring issues but I'm sure I could figure something out writh my silver solder and patience. All the parts are avaliable, including the cluster. If the tach is ran from the transmission signal and the speedo is ran from the wheel speed, I'd only need to adapt the tach? What about feeding the relocated battery? Use the 300E wiring for that only? Of course I'd cut that portion out, or should I relocate the battery and place the computer components under the battery's existing spot?
