Introduction to my 80 300SD

(1/1)

SuitGuy:
Hi all! I'm new to owning an MB, as well as new to the forum. I'd love to introduce everyone to my 1980 300SD.

Current Malfunctions and Errors:

Jumpy/Non-functioning Tach
Cabin Leaking Water
Heat Anytime, All the time
Questionable Bodywork (Looking at you, rear quarters & rocker panels)
Shocks
No Air via Center Vents
"Manual" Glowplugs
Finicky Cruise Control
Leaking Window Seals
DF Window Regulator
A/C Modernization
Belts & Rubber

Resolved Issues:

Motor Mounts
Trunk Seal, kind of
Power Antenna Mast
Lower Oil Cooler Line Replaced

The car is pretty innocuous, but it does not have a sunroof. I don't know how common this is, but one less place to leak doesn't bother me!

Pictures Coming Soon!

No sunroof is a big plus in my book ;)

Welcome to the asylum!  Congrats on your fine, new ride.  Sounds like you've got a few projects on tap to keep you entertained.  And FWIW I agree with Daniel, sunroofs are over-rated.  I too am glad I don't have one.  Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this forum a great resource, as we all have.  Post some pix of the new car when you can!  Cheers,

The pictures, as promised:


Apologies for the heavy equipment in the background. Rural PA has its perks and downsides.
