Stripping a junked :( 190 E-what to get?

It's in the Post. I'm going for PRISTINE 15" wheels, W'pretty good tires, spare, lug wrench, rear and front lenses (just in case), fuel and air cond. relay, power antenna, coolant reservoir for brother.
Any other easy to detach items? Other relays? My A.C.C. clicks if I adjust temp.-A.C.C. easy?
It's been sitting for awhile, but looks O.K. though.
Need ideas quickly! Going soon!!!!!
Thanks, Mel

Cruise control amp, seat belt alarm relay, tach/clock, vacuum lock pump . . . for a start.

vacuum lock pump is under the rear seat. I think they're quite expensive if they go.

Not sure about the clock..

May be worth keeping the chassis in case you need to replace one

I mentioned the tach/clock mostly because the clock (which can be unsoldered from the tach) is a common failure item on the W201.

Other frequently mentioned failure items on the W201 are the window regulators (lifts) because of their design in aluminum, which tends to twist and stress/fail/

Road & Track did an Owner's Survey and found these common problem areas:

Brake pads
Air conditioning
Window lifts
Interior parts
Brake rotors
Computer controlled sensors
Valves/Guides
Central door locks
Exterior body parts
Water pump
Instruments
Gaskets
Fuel injection

Thanks for your reply, all the info!
Seems like a lot of weak areas for what I would think is a quality automobile.
Thanks for your time, it's appreciated!
