I just purchased an 84.5 240 intercooled turbo. Other than the wiring harness, what other things should I have my mechanic check out? The car has been well maintained, clean Carfax and runs excellent. The interior and exterior both need work. If anyone can recommend a great bodyshop or restore shop in the New York City/Brooklyn/Queens area, let me know. The car has zero rust but definitely needs some minor body/trim pieces replaced and a full paint job. The interior needs to be redone as well. I have a budget of $7500 to get everything done and it doesn't have to be "show quality" but I do want quality. So what are the common issues for this year and model? It has 166k miles. Also, does anyone know where I can buy replacement LEATHER seat covers? I have searched everywhere and cant find a direct fit leather replacement cover.
Thanks all.
Jamie

Check the flame trap then check the seals for any leaks.

Also change the oil cap gasket.

Check the valve cover for any leaks.

Belts?
