Euro front bumper bracket

I know, I know not another Euro thread!
Somebody posted the dimensions for bending the Euro side brackets when installing Euros on a US spec car. I've been drivng for a year or so with my Euros on and no bracket, but the ends vibrate and now I need to fix them. Can anybody direct me to that post? I've had no luck using the search.
Thanks, Ned

Found this. From Unesl's conversion, no measurements though.

Are you sure you need to bend it? I bent mine first then had to fight it to bend it back. My 560 hardly needed any bend at all. slide the canister up put bracket on then screw or zip tie canister onto bracket. Just check first that's all.

Thanks guys. The sketch that I was thinking of is the one which Dave sent (above). I'll fudge it in from that, although my 380SL seems a little different? Ned

Euro front bumper bracket

After helping Shep install his, I too would advise trying it without bending first. I don't think it is really necessary.

Mine do not have any strange bends or cut off's. If you need it, I can pull out the two bolts on either side and trace it and email. Let me know. Nothing under there on a 73 to interfere.
