w114 bumper mount - NA > Euro

Hey, does anyone know if the European bumper mounting brackets will fit on a NA bumper? I'm looking to pull the NA bumper closer to the body of the car.

Thanks

Only difference is the 1974-1976 cars. I think 1968-1973 W114 bumpers were world, except for a few odd ball things with rear bumpers and stupid over riders that we in the USA were forced to deal with.

1968-1976 I've swapped euro to US, US to Euro but I always used brackets from the bumper I was using. USA 1974-1976 Bumpers brackets will not fit any euro bumper.

1968-1973 brackets are same US to EURO

Where are you located? Why not just pick up some small/euro bumpers? I know there have been big-to-small bumper swaps done before.

Hmm... What model do you have?

Hmm... Maybe fill out your profile?
