We just finished a Mercedes 1999 SLK230 restore in the Orlando area. Repairs, body paint, all interior plastic, seats, mirrors. Had great luck buying new/old stock from Merc dealers across the country. Also used PartsTrain and Pelican for both parts and 'how to' instructions. Visited an eBay interior parts seller - he gets salvaged parts from a German custom car builder who uses SLK230s as the 'donor' car chassis.
Questions or comments, PM me.
(And thanks for this forum's members. Rebuilt the roof hydraulics last year and have followed the advice of many of you!)
