Question Anyone parting W111 Fintail? or source for parts?

Looking for the stainless trim piece that runs across the top of the passenger side fin (from the rear passenger door to the tip of the fin). Also looking for a good dash pad if thats possible? Also is there any type of linkage rebuild kit for the 4 on the column shift linkage? Maybe to tighten it all up? Any information is greatly appreciated .

You can get those parts at the dealer but be prepared to pay a high price for trim pieces.

Dash pads are expensive from what I've heard.

Here's a link to the Russian web site that has tha parts tables, this one for the W111 220S.

As for the linkage parts, you will have to ID them and order them seperatly:

It seems the site is down. By any chance would anyone have a copy floating around there pc?

Im still shocked that mercedes produces all of these parts still. Once I come across the parts list we'll see what my wallet can handle. I believe the call will go something like this.. " "

I'd start with Hemmings Motor News if I were you. Good luck!
