Need extra sets of hands.

I'm in trouble already and I need help now.

I've been restoring a 1983 300TD for my wife to drive for the past few months. She hasn't needed a car very much and we've been able to juggle vehicles when she needed to get to work. Now however she's starting a new apprenticeship she needs the car ready NOW.

I work/live two hours away from home during the week so I only have weekends to work on the car now. And the past few weekends the weather hasn't permitted me to work.

So I need help getting it running and on the road.

The engine and trans are in the car, but that's about the extent that they are hooked up. I need to get all coolant lines, fuel lines, brake lines, hydraulic lines put in. The radiator, oil cooler, and all the under hood accessories put in. I need to get the driveshaft balanced sometime this next week and get it in as well.

Any help would be appreciated. I can pay in beer, pizza or parts pulled in from a yard (reasonable). PM for info. I'm located in Damascus, MD. South of I-70, North of Gaithersburg.

Thanks in advance.
I recondition w123/w126/w124/w140/r107/r129/ steering boxes!
