I didn't take any before shots, but this bumper was blue and had a long crack along the very top. I picked it up for $75. Some super glue, some quick setting JB weld, a lot of sanding and one $4 can of Valspar pewter spray paint from Lowe's and here she is...







BTW, that aforementioned paint is a PERFECT match for the gray cladding on this car!

What were the alternatives? My town doesn't have many of these cars in salvage yards. Cheapest new bumper w/ shipping was $250.

if there were an abundance of benzs at yards here it would probably be cheaper. :surrender::surrender::surrender:

Around here the local pick your part sells any bumper for $40. Of course there's an abundance of NAM spec W201's around here.
