Window wind deflectors
« on: 11 October 2018, 11:59 AM »
Was there any wind deflectors made for the tops of the windows, I hate the look of the moulded plastic rubbish. 
I’m liking the uber rare chrome versions for the w114/5 and would love a set for the W116.

Thanks.
Neil.

I found a set in chrome a few years ago, sold in Germany, but all the data from it is a a penguin logo. I bought the set, but I have not been able to find out more. There are pics on my "layman" thread somewhere.

Thanks for the info mate, are there any numbers or other branding?

I’ll have to have a good google search.

You can stuy the pics in my thread, and the logo. I tried to question it's origins, but it looks like Teutonic penguin, thus HE asks the questions!

Floyd those wind deflectors are PERFECT (want to sell them  ;) ) on another note I just finished reading your build, incredible work finding all those parts, credit to you staying with the project.

They're rare as can be, though. Never even heard a rumor about another set in chrome, so if you find a set, pay whatever they ask, haha!
