450SEL in Ireland - Where to get parts?

I've just bought a '74 450SEL in Malta and shipped it home to Ireland. It's actually a RHD Japan sourced car which spent all its life there and was recently bought by the dealer in Malta along with a few hundred Jap Imports.

I've had a preliminary look around it and need to source some suspension and other parts. Whats recommendations do people here have for good Ireland/UK/EU based parts suppliers?

Many Thanks

Ian

Your proximity to Germany will make looking for new/used parts there one of the better, more feasible choices, as shipping shouldn't be near what it would be shipping across the Atlantic.

I know there are a lot of classic parts dealers that I read about in Mercedes Enthusiast (UK-based magazine), but for the life of me I can't remember their names, and don't have an issue handy to look.

That is a nice looking car, though!
