1982 300SD CA (Kelseyville) good mechanicals rough appearance straight. also tools

Subject pretty much says it all, if not truncated. 1982 300SD, brick in color. Body straight, paint dead. Engine 9/10 (turbo oil leak from diaphragm and return, but turbo has new impeller and makes great boost) and transmission 10/10. Interior rough. Lots of miles. This car goes very well, with no lagging or dragging, and no overheating. The driver's seat is on its way out but not down to pool noodle status, the left windows don't roll down (presumed door hinge area wiring, but haven't checked. right windows work) and the sunroof is sticky. Ignition died, replaced with the usual. 2 keys for that, 1 for the doors. Passenger lock defective. AC doesn't work but has reman compressor, probably needs H-Valve as well as compressor seals. Have H-Valve. Steering pump noisy but works fine. Cruise switch probably bad. Turn signal switch going. Seat switches half-gone but all functions still work, just fiddly. Stereo, JVC with bluetooth. Adequate new poly cone speakers sloppily installed. New rear springs. Turbo rebuilt with stainless 360 degree thrust collar and new impeller wheel and shaft. Needs new diaphragm to stop leaking. Turbo from 1985 model with internal bypass unused and capped. Spare good. Jack good. New Bosch blower motor. Very new rubber. New trunk seal. tools: garrett turbo rebuild wrenches, timing adjustment wrenches parts: spare valve cover gasket, some buttons, some brake pads, some rebuild kit parts, some turbo parts, spare valve cover I was going to polish or paint, only did initial sanding. Okay, enough robot recitation. This was my daily but I decided I wanted AWD and got an A8 Quattro. It runs strong, shifts great and holds to redline if you like. The car is mechanically sound, doesn't leak any fuel, doesn't leak any coolant, only leaks oil from the turbo You could daily drive this car right away, but it would be a service to the world if the oil leak were to be fixed first. The interior is pretty shaggy, but there's no big holes or tears. Some of the wood has come apart on the dash and the climate surround is broken in the usual way. Carpets are in OK but not great condition, ditto headliner. Black windlaces sourced from another car are in pretty good shape overall. Sun visors are mismatched. Would make a good project car, or a great source of a powertrain, or an OK daily, or a good parts car. Photo can take more if there is interest.
