The Project Car – Everything looks good until you really look

I am “restoring” or you could say fixing my 1984 280CE W123. To give you an idea of why it is not an exactly a restoration, but more of hidden problems that needs to be attended, check out the pictures of the car below.

As you could guess, the problem is rust related in some places out of view. It is leaking water when parked and the rear trailing arm needs to be replaced. Will probably find more issues and need to change wear parts.
