Who (what store, online vendor, etc.) sells a replacement wood trim piece that surrounds the shifter and window switches on my W126? That's the only piece of wood that's bad on my 1990 car (fingers crossed).

Your only choice is to have your piece refinished. If yours is damaged then buy one on ebay and have it refinished. My experience is it is best to have the center shifter wood, ashtray and upper console refinished at the same time. Doing only one piece usually doesn't match and it will drive you crazy. Also think twice or three times before attempting to refinish yourself as it can get ugly unless you have experience in this art. Good Luck. Mike

Is the piece you’re looking for Zebrano or burlwood?

Is "Zebrano" more striped like a zebra, while "burlwood" has roundish swirl patterns such as those in a fine briar pipe?
Has anyone bought one such as I see in the Bay that purport to be OEM NOS from Germany and rather pricey? How did that turn out?

Yes - Zebrano is basically the zebra wood and is stock on the 300SD/300SE/420SEL/etc. Burled Walnut is on the higher end models (ex: the 560SEC/SEL). Since you have a 300SEL listed on your profile, I suspect you have the Zebrano. I do have one of these which is in decent shape (needs to be wiped down) with all the buttons that I'd sell for $30 shipped. I believe it's from a 1987 car... it doesn't have the removable plastic surround which I think is found on 90/91 (but I do have extras of those too and I'm sure it would fit).

Even if you get a perfect piece of shifter wood, the chances are very slim of it matching your other wood. Refinishing everything at once (or as @magicbigdaddy suggested, just the shifter/ashtray/climate control as they're next to each other) is the way to go

Here's mine. Can it be refinished? I don't like the chipped and cracked clear coating on the wood. A nice piece of Formica would be better.

I have two 560 engines complete. They would make great parts engines as they only need valve guides. One needs valve covers, but the heads have been covered and are safe. The other is complete. Fifty bucks $50 each takes them. Transportation will be on the buyer. PM me.

It is with a heavy heart I have to post my 1987 560 SEC on here for sale. I am no longer in a position to maintain it.
my ex wife has all my tools and my land lord has informed me I may not store or work on any vehicles.
the car is complete and does run and drive. it needs breaks, AC Compressor and a neutral safety switch. I had the top end redone by Hi Line Mercedes service 2 years ago. asking 2500.00 but make me an offer.
Patrick, can you provide a link to a post where you share the vehicle's details, photos, mileage, condition, etc.? I'm interested but want to know more.

Fiddly Interior Plastics Wanted

I'm having trouble finding these on eBay, et cetera:

126 919 07 20 (driver side lower seat trim cover - grey)
126 684 05 18 (driver side outside seat rail bolt cover - grey)
126 689 36 08 (steering column cover, interfaces with wood trim in dash - black)

I'm also looking for the later W126 black plastic side mirror seal cover (see attached photo) that goes on the interior-side of the passenger side mirror mounting point. I wasn't able to find a part number, mine is just gone.

If anyone has one or more of these parts and is willing to ship to 36330 zip code, please PM me! Thanks in advance.
About to put on ebay a full set of the grey interior seat trim parts.. including 126 684 05 18.... I have all four seat trim brand new still in OEM bags.... (if still interested).. Look for the P/N
