280 SL Bumber Rubber

I have a red 1985 280 SL, I bought it for my wife but I think its the best car I have ever driven. Anyway, I hired a new garage in which to keep it and managed to slightly damage the left hand side rubber thats attached to the chrome bumper.

Luckily the chrome was not damaged however the rubber is and I can't seem to find anywhere on the net to purchase a new one. I have assumed that you can just take off the rubbers and replace them.

Could anyone suggest a place I could buy a new rubber from, and advise on removal and replacement would be nice to if poss.

Cheers for any help you can give.

Good luck with web vendors. If all else fails, go straight to the source...

MB Classic Center

I know they've got them. I bought a rear one last year for my 84 500SL.

do yourself a favor and go directly to your Mercedes dealer or the classic center. I have no problem obtaining any part for my 1980 280 SL. You are correct, they are great cars. Had mine out all day with the top down. Life is good.
