107 windscreen

I am looking for a windscreen for my 1976 450SL. THe cheapest I've seen is about $200 for the Lexan version. I thought maybe I could find a good used regular MB version for $200.

Where are you seeing the lexan version? I have that one, good for some years, but 6-8 years in, I'd replace it for $200 if the lexan were new.

I saw it on E-Bay. You can get it tinted. It is straped on to the head rest.

My $0.02, save your money and get either the real thing used (CAUTION! you need the two plastic parts that came with it to adapt to pre-81 cars), or get the other one sold new on eBay, which I think is a bit clunkier than the OEM version, but is still very well made. It will be some of the best money you spend on the car. I have two 107's and both are equipped with the OEM version.

P.S. You might have better luck in the fall or winter for a used one. Keep looking on eBay or set up a notification.

A used one in good condition ,means no holes and not thinned from the sun will be hard to get for $200.00 you might have to add a little.

Or.....you could make one. Check this link out on how to do it. It's for a pagoda sl but the concept and execution will be the same for the sl.

Homemade wind deflector details

I think I made mine for about $25 of which half of that was to buy a quart of colour matched paint to my car. At the very least it will show you how to make a cardboard template that you can use to see if the benefits of a wind blocker are worth shelling out $200-500.
