Rust is always hidden and can be prevented or slowed down at the lower rear window seal .It creeps along slowley under the gasket until its too late .Reason from what ive recognized as the culpriet is the chrome gasket holder and a weathered seal.Ive been putting a small amount of clear silicon at the chrome joint then a small amount along the window and seal ,then body and seal .Its a very common 300cd issue.
I also have that color on my 84 coupe ,this vehicle sat at a used car lot and was bought with a 1994 sticker,yours faired much better than mine , alot of time sitting in a garage Im sure.Im located just north of houston and recommend a mercedes meet which usually happens in June .The Austin ,Dallas ,and Houston guys and gals join up to meet at the town of Centerville off I-45, we should bring the coupes and talk shop.

The parts car- is still got a complete hvac box in it and also a good transmission. I have one good rear glass but those are pricy-Hard to find a nice pair of doors, complete side bright trim window surrounds, trunk and hood,
all the other stuff im keeping for when brakes regulators etc go out on me.

I have a nice drivers seat in palomino. I have nice seat bases /good springs and FOAM bunz instead of horsehair--That makes aworld of difference in comfort. and a few bits like door pulls etc.
the complete hvac is $100 with the dash control unit included.

Anyway I ran into GH at the FW pnp last month when he mentioned his neighbor had this coupe just like mine--He said it needed door strikers (parts in the door jam) and I can supply those too.
