Glass Moonroof for W140 or W126 sedan

I'm a longtime w126er who replaced my steel sunroof with a W140 glass moonroof. Who'd a thunk that the roofs were interchangeable? Well, they are, and it's a fairly easy DIY operation. I have found two glass sedan roofs in the local junkyards and I thought I'd inquire whether any of you with the steel sunroof would be interested in a conversion to the glass variety. It would be a fairly easy thing to do-- it would involve changing the arms, and installing the rubber bellows ("accordion"), the roof seal and the interior liner. This is easily done in about an hour-- all the parts would be included and I can provide instructions, too. Asking $400 + shipping.

Here's a link to my W126 conversion video and photos of the two available glass roofs in the FS section of the W126 forum:

1995 E320 Wagon, 190K "Ruby"; Garnet red (512) on Cream beige leather (265). Daily driver, long-term restoration project.
1990 560 SEL, 190K "Ingrid"; Smoke silver (702) on Cream beige leather (265). Gen 2 euro bumpers, euro headlights/turns, W140 glass moonroof, orthopedic seats. SOLD
1983 300SD, 106K "Hans"; Orient Red (501) on Java MB tex (154). SOLD

I know this is a long shot but do you have this still available?
