Post 280C Headlight chrome ring missing!

Hey Guys,

I recently had a tire loose most of its tread on the interstate. Luckily, I remained in control of the car and a had a spare. The tire tread punched out the metal cup that protects the headlight. I've managed to "persuade" the metal back into place with a hammer. After I did so I realized the chrome ring that holds the main sealed beam lamp in place was missing. So I need to find a replacement.

I checked adsitco and the ring runs for about $60 which is pretty expense for a poor college student like myself. Does anybody have any suggestions on where I can get one? Its a 1973 280c which is the 114 chassis. I assume any 114 chassis should have the same ring. If anyone knows of a good merc scrapyard here in TN that would be great. Also if you have a parts car laying around, I'd love to buy it from you.

Thanks for your help,

Big Al
