Sporadic Brakes

I have a late '89 200TQ with 136K miles. For the last several months the
brakes have been sticking occasionally when the engine is hot and I am driving
in town with a lot of stop-n-go traffic. The A/C seems to make the condition
worse (engine hotter?). They will stick to the point that all four brakes are
on and the car will not accelerate in fifth gear. It heats the rotors up to
the point of smoking the pads and popping and pinging when I park. Based on
similar posts I have followed the easiest and cheapest routes to a fix first
(brake fluid flush, SS brake lines, caliper rebuild - all four) with no
success. I suppose the nest step is the master cylinder. I know the bomb needs
replacing; will that contribute to the problem? Any suggestions would be

On a different note. Anyone have a passenger side headlight for a 200 they are
willing to part with?
