New Member from Penna....with W126 question!

Hello all...I've been a Mercedes-Benz owner for many, many years now...but in doing some electrical modification work to my 420SEL, I need some info if anyone can steer me to it or provide it, please.

I snagged myself a pair of fanfare horns from the junkyard, along with the switch...and I've been pondering what all the four pinouts are on the switch itself. Now, at the moment, I am just going to use a momentary switch but eventually I need to find the little panel for the heated seat/horn/etc. switches located near the gearchanger. So it's not like I'm desperately in need of this info now, as I can wire up my "temporary" switch and relay now. Just curious, I guess!

One thing I cannot find at the junkyard is that little console switch grey, anyway! Outta luck on ebay, too...and even the dealer can only provide it in black.

Anyway, as for me....I have a 1978 280E which needs a little attention once I can afford the body repairs (big hole in the floor due to a water leak!) current driver, a 1990 420SEL in black, and sitting in my yard awaiting some major attention is my 1959 220S sedan. That is actually destined to become a little longer, with a modest stretch--something a friend of mine persuaded me to tackle. He says he can do it! We plan on dropping in a 5.6L out of a W126. Black with grey velour interior and mahogany-stained woodwork. Should be very sharp!
