Welcome to the forum!

When I met my wife (back in '88, when she was at college) she discovered I spent most of my free time under the hood or underneath a collection of old jalopies.

I asked her what her dream car was - an SL Roadster. 30 years later we're still together, and the '76 450SL is getting close to finished....

It's great when your SO shares the hobby - hope you both enjoy the car!


PS Agree with everyone else - fix the fuel leak first, but I say then drive it a little to make sure you've not missed anything serious. Also, definitely buy an EPC DVD plus the service manuals (paper or electronic) off ebay - you'll need them..

PPS How on earth does a coil get a hole in it - and work?!
