...for all the VERY helpful (and VERY tempting) information. I am in the process of getting and installing Euro lights in my 420SEL. I will try to see whether I can jury-rig my current headlight wipers. If not, then I'll bite the bullet and install new (or used) everything....
I like the idea of using the 560SEL air cleaner housing. More air in the intake should help improve performace. Add a K&N filter and voila! better performance.
Your wheels look great. Normally I like the stock look, but the new wheels look great in your lowered 420.
As I wrote before, you got yourself a nice custom Benz. You should not only be the envy of the neighborhood, but the car should give you many years of fun and pleasurable driving. Enjoy!
As you probably already know, the W126 series is probably the best Benz ever made (please, no flames from other Benz owners
). If you take good care of yours, it should last you for many,many years.
Again, thanks for all the helpful info!
