300D Coming Home Soon!

Hi Guys,

As some of you might remember, my 300D met up with a deer last fall on my way home from work.

Original thread:
My 300D met a deer tonight.

I sent the car off to a local body/paint shop for a complete repaint and repair of the damaged areas.

Many parts were addressed, some listed:

New MB Fenders
Used hood/grille
New hood pad
Used upper core support
Genuine Hella euro headlights
Genuine Hella euro turn signals
New door lock actuator
Sunroof is fully functional again
New Antenna grommet
All new clips for the roof rails
Fixed wiper fluid hoses/lines.
New Sunroof seal

Body shop texted me and said it was ready for pickup!
Unfortunately I still need to clean up the garage so I have a place to put it! Certainly not going to just part it outside now!

Its not quite ready to go back into daily driver duty. I still have a list of mechanical items to address.

Here are some pics, thought you guys might like to see:
