Hey all,

New here - Just picked up a 1966 W111 230S that needs a little body work, a little paint work, a little upholstery work and a little motor work.

Who do you recommend? (In Victoria)

Thanks in advance!,

A little rust in the usual areas
Therefore possible respray
Seat stitching split
Dash cracked
And motor (and I guess trans) needs a good service and tune

I sold a pristine dash a few months ago for 400 aud...

For the seats: look for a local marine or automotive upholsterer
