WTB: Gen 2, 560 air cleaner housing

I posted this in the w126 FS section but didn't get any response so I'm going to try here.

I'm looking for a decent -non pitted- air cleaner housing for my 560 SEL. I would think someone, somewhere has one from a wrecked car sitting, collecting dust. eBay only has gen 1 air cleaners at the moment.

I ruined mine by cleaning it with the Home Depot drain cleaner method that was suggested in a previous post. I would strongly recommend against that method on an air cleaner due to the factory coating and the uneven etching produced by using the drain cleaner. It may be a good technique on some other part that has a uniform finish, but I can personally vouch for it not working on Air Cleaners.

Thanks,
Greg

I have an dual intake air cleaner from a 560SEL. It is not perfect but may be better than what you have. I would think a good aluminum polish like "Mother's" would work nicely to clean it up. Maybe "NeverDull" would work good too. Make me an offer.

You cannot change your future without disturbing your present.
It looks a whole lot more like it does today than it did yesterday?

Just wanted to say that Chris, the seller, was a great guy to deal with. Item was exactly as described and was shipped super-fast. I would highly recommend him for parts ... he has over 100 MB's to part out.

He also has "Crown Auto Recycling Service" on Facebook so you can check out what he has.
