Does W108 front bumper fit on W116?
I just finished restoring a 73 280SE 4.5 and have a set of very nice bumpers left over from the donor car I used. Now I got me an 80 300SD as a new project. I wanted to use Euro bumpers, but those are hard to get (even for someone who lives in Germany) and even harder to ship to the US. Here are the challenges I have for you:
1) Has anyone ever put 108 bumpers on a 116? What needs to be changed?
2) If it is too hard to do - can you shorten the 116 bumper shocks and modify the side rubber, so they are closer to the chassis?
Thanks for your replies. Great forum, everything the MB enthusiast needs!
P.S. If there is anyone in the Phoenix area, please get it touch!
