I just changed the battery on my 560SEL. For a car that has been garaged all its life and I can't find any rust at all, the battery tray was quite nasty.

Details here:

Basically I removed the tray, cleaned it up with a wire brush attachment on my drill, primed, painted and re-installed.

Not only was the tray nasty there was a lot of debris underneath.

Yes I concur! It’s one of the first things I do after buying another car! It’s never checked or cleaned & the neglect by POs has rendered some cars only good for parts....
