Hi Everyone
I've just purchased a 280SL in great shape but with a few wrinkles that I'd appreciate help in ironing out.

1.After heavy rain or washing a trickle of water sometimes appears in both footwells - presumably a drain hole blocked but I can't find it. Advice please as to how many drains and where situated.

The next may be related:

2.Car starts fine when cold, and also when stopped for short time, say 5 mins. After 30 mins to 1 hour takes 5/6 goes before it can be coaxed into life.

3.In Drive at say traffic lights, using either foot or parking brake, starts to run lumpily and may stall, hesitates when trying to pull away.

Advice gratefully received
