Any good 300D mechanics in or around Athens Ohio

Hello everyone, Its my first post and Im not sure if this is the correct place to post this so please go easy on me if it isnt.

I own a 1982 300D series that needs some work to make it drivable again and was hoping someone on here could point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

Post on CL

Post on Craigslist, you'll find some people.

Unless it's a real specific question, you'll find many good general mechanics, so long as they've been doing it for a number of years, who know a lot about a lot of cars. I only take my MB to a specialist for the more refined things, like problems with the wastegate. In those cases, they can spot problems quicker, and get them done right the first time.

But other things, like changing out glow plugs, putting on engine mounts, changing the a/c blower fan, a good general mechanic can do just fine.
