'92 500 SL front bumper cover -Where can I find?

I have just destroyed my bumper cover (spoiler) on my '92 SL for the second time hitting a curb while parking. I have a couple of questions and I would appreciate any suggestions the experts might offer:
1) Are there other year SL models that have bumper covers that don't hang down so low that I might be able to use on my '92 model without a lot of modifications?
2) Where should I look to buy a replacement cover -either the '92 spoiler or another year model you might suggest?
This is my first post. Thanks in advance for your help.
I live in Tuscaloosa where the M Class SUV's are made. My son-in-law works at the plant. If there is anything I can do from here to share info, just let me know.

Hi, use the pull down menu from any page to locate the R129 forum, that's the in-house designation for your car and the system used here to identify models. The folks there are very kind and generous with info and will surely get you pointed in the right direction!

If you look at the "stickies" (highlighted in blue) at the top of the R129 forum, you will see a FS/T/Wanted thread where R129 owners offer bits and pieces for the cars. You may find the bumper cover you seek.

If you would take time to fill out your profile, it will make it easier to help you.

BTW, I live down-state in Fairhope. I've been to the plant near Tuscaloosa. Interesting place.
