Had the same thought on my 81 300CD last week while at the pick n pull yard. Decided best way was to get a tank from some Japanese import that would place the holding tank next to the radiator and then replace the radiator cap with one that was double sealed which is required with a recovery system. Run the overflow hose into the bottle. Decided against the M.B. tank because as you noted, it would require a new radiator with the hose fitting molded into the lower right side of the tank. I like the tank, not because of no air in the system, but because you can verify coolant with no cap removal. Once done I would then have to get some Italian part in order to cover all the WW2 enemies!
