So I just bought DP's '91 300TE and it's home in my driveway. DP threw in a bunch of parts including a sunroof mechanism for a w126 that will fix my SDL's sunroof problems.
The drive home was great. The only issue was a hydraulic line started leaking about 5 miles from my house. It shot fluid on the exhaust and made a big cloud of smoke that scared my wife and I at first.
DP did a bunch of great work on this thing and there's not a whole lot left to do mechanically.
It goes in for a front end alignment, inspection, emissions, and fix the hydraulic line early this week.
I put my CLK wheels on it today and cleaned it up a little bit. More cleaning will occur after the car is all legal.
The 1995 E320 parts wagon is a PERFECT donor for this 300TE. It's an exact color match for the interior and exterior and is loaded with upgrades that will be nice to have in the TE.
I think I'm going to put the hood from the E320 along with the Euro headlights /wipers on the TE. The third row seat and hatch carpet pieces, heated front seats with armrest/console, roll top center console box, electric side mirrors, and cargo net/divider are also going over to the 300TE.
I think I'll use the wheels from the E320 to hold snow tires for the TE.
