Replacement Body Panels

I'm looking for some fenders and a deck lid for my 1985 W123 300td wagon.

Anyone have any rust free, dent free fenders or know where i can find some cheap! (BESIDES the dealerships of course.)

I also need a deck lid shell to replace the cobbed up one on my wagon. Used or not, just a rust free, and dent free piece of metal. the guts are not needed but if you are selling them with it thats fine.

THANKS,

TIM

PS Also, is a W123 300d rear moulding that goes from the rear door to the trunk lid edge, the same as a W123 300td???

Try, Mercedes Benz Parts & Accessories - Adsit Company Inc.. I looked and they currently have both fenders new for $152.10 each. I'm not sure what what a deck lid shell is. I know they have the rear hatch for $805.00 new and $585.00 used if that's what you mean. Hope this helps!

Be careful with Adsit, I've heard many bad stories from their customers getting bad parts.

Junkyard is still best but finding a wagon is harder. Good luck.

Here is another site I use for all types of used car and truck parts: Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. I just checked and there are numerous fenders and hatches for your car throughout the country. You can narrow the search by geographic area. There is a hatch and both fenders in Massapequa,NY. $250 for the hatch, but no price listed for the fenders. Action Auto Wreckers 1-800-562-8811. Maybe this is close to your location.

Removing a fender from a W123 can be tricky business because of the glue. Some come off easy, others do not. A removed used one was located for me at a salvage yard for $65. Does anyone know if the new fenders being sold are of the same weight/thickness as originals?

Put it back together? Sure honey, no problem.

OEM fenders are the same. Aftermarket imitations are lighter gauge steel. I just replaced the aftermarket fenders on my coupe with OEM because the aftermarkets looked like 5h1t. The horizontal crease was not sharp, the crimping was crude and the fit was just not right.

Re-assembly is simply the reverse of dismantling. No, really.
