Thanks for advice. Restorations are nothing new to me and floor pans etc are
not all that scary.

I restored a Mercedes Benz 450SEL 6.9 that was quite rusty underneath and
documented it in phases.
See http://www.alabbasi.net/450SEL.htm for pictures of the restoration.

I also restored a rust free 73 Mercedes Benz 280SEL after a lady rear ended
me in a Dodge Durango. Here are the pictures for this restoration:

Is there any structural component that makes a restoration of such a car a
deal breaker?

I am actually more concerned about the wiring as the car was sitting by a
lake for a long time in a field. I don't know if mice or snakes have climbed
in there (I know that there are snakes because a 5ft long black and yellow
one slid past me just as I drove up!).

I should have more details once I unbolt the parts and take a look

Many thanks for your thoughts and opinions.

With best regards
