Manual transmission in w123 300D?

Hi, I haven't posted here before, but I have a question. I learned to drive on a '79 240D (pictured above, I'm on the right) and I might have to buy a car soon, due to a wreck with my daily driver. I really liked that car, and I was sad to see it go.

Anyway, I like the 300D (especially the wagon) except for one thing: it only came in an automatic. I'd consider getting one if I knew I could convert it to manual in the future (probably after I'm done rebuilding my '73 BMW 2002).

Has anyone converted the 300D to a manual, using the 4-speed from the 240D or some other transmission? What else would be involved in such a swap?
