Re: 220'F on hill climb

The all-aluminum radiator should provide the best possible cooling. Making it a triple-pass will increase the dwell time in the radiator, but may also increase back-pressure to the point that flow is restricted. A boost pump may help with this.

Re: New & looking for a W460 for occasional towing

I recommend you consider the unladen performance of a W460 and then calculate for the additional towing load. A LWB will certainly be more stable. I question what G version would "comfortably" handle such a load, especially if you intend to do any freeway or mountain driving. A W463 would ...

Re: Advice on body work...

Why not mechanical strip? A half-hour with a decent DA sander will have you down to bare metal. The under-side is more challenging.
