Ive seen C class grilles and hoods on other 190E's, Im just wondering if I bought a used C-Class hood and grill if it would just bolt right on to the car without any modification, besides the painting, of course! ;) Any help is appriciated! Thanks! 1985 MB 190E 2.3

It is not a "bolt on" installation. To match the C-Class grill, you have to cut it off the hood and weld it onto the W201 hood, then blend and paint. There are SEC/SLC grill frames that bolt on, but if you check the tapering hoodlines, they don't hit the edge of the grill frame.
