I used vinyl. I am in the car business and have a few classic Mercedes as well. Some with factory leather some with vinyl. Vinyl holds up the best. I plan on keeping my 345 for a while. It is a light taupe/tan color. Looks great. I took the new style from the 2011 AS trailer. I however did not do the tufting. (buttons) less to go wrong they seem to go missing after awhile. Waiting to get my captan chairs I ordered.

the original ( couch ) had been re done my a P.O. buttons are falling off and it is not comfortable.

the original Helm chairs are fine. Just well worn and so the reason for ordering new. No, they have not arrived yet.

Now there is a reason not to get married!

Seriously tho... There is very little left to salvage!
Chassis... heat distorted I bet.
Body... I did not spot one whole panel that was intact.
Drive train... 454's are easy and cheap to find... maybe the trans and rear axle.

But that rear bumper...
I think the are $400 ish new..

Oh good. I ended up not putting buttons on my redo just for that reason. Less to fall apart.

They are, I bought one from Andy a while ago after I'd spent seventeen years backing into various power poles, stumps, etc. Point in fact: a new bumper comes with no holes drilled for mounting or holes for the guards. It has to be done with a felt pen to mark the new holes underneath and the old bumper to make the measurements for the guards. It's not for the faint-of-heart; I had my Delta stationary drill press and a jig for the bumper to lay on for alignment. All clamped down, with a fresh drill bit, double-check everything (you've only got one shot at it) and proceed. I would not even try it without the above tools. One of the holes was a little off, but with the drill press, I was able to enlarge it a tad. I'm a lot more carefull backing up, now.
