Clay, great looking car. Thanks for posting the pictures and providing inspiration to the rest oof us

Normally, I like to stay with the stock wheels, to keep the car's original appearance, but the wheels in your "new" 420SEL look quite nice, as does the grill, Euro lights, wipers, etc. You now have a 420 that looks great and should give you many,many years of pleasurable driving.

I have a couple of questions for you. Did you buy the 560 air filter housing new from Phil? If so, what was the price? Was it a straightforward swap? And,most important, have you noticed an increase in performance and/or fuel economy?

Regarding the Euro headlight wipers, did you replace the stock wiper motors too, or did you only need to replace the the wiper arms and blades? What was the cost for the Euro headlight wipers?

Thanks for the info and thanks for the pics.
