WTB Steering Wheel for 88 560SL

I am looking for a smaller steering wheel for my 1988 560 SL. I am 6'2" and the stock steering wheels is really in my way.

I would like to have one a little bit smaller (390 mm or so) and would prefer a Mercedes wheel that fits without modifications and I can keep a working airbag.

If anybody has one, please let me know via PM or email (preferred) or post here.

Maybe somebody can at least tell me what would fit my car and I check eBay and salvage yards.

I have used a wheel off of a W126 (86-89) with airbag on and it was great, except the tops of the gauges get cut off (from my viewpoint, anyway)and the wheel sticks "out" a bit more. You might try getting a junky one from a junkyard and if you like it, have it redone.
