I take it the yard is not a pick and pull. If not you may want to talk to someone to see if they will let you pull anyway or at least watch. So you know how it goes on.

Anyone else want to mention / reinforce the idea that the money spent here is going down the tube? . 2k in 20+ year old parts is a down payment for an early model w166, and I've seen a few amg's in the 30k-40k range around these parts.

All for supporting project cars, but just don't condone throwing good money after bad -- these trucks ain't gonna end up in a classic car museum one day ;)

congratulations, you’ve described the vast majority of project cars and, for that matter, hobbies in general.
Ok

This might help but don’t blame the messager, I did not watch the whole video got to the part where he said “the special fastmers make it easier”.

demichae puts together well versed videos for all the members +, to watch, understand, and learn from.

Thanks I have heard his name never saw his videos and have wondered who he was. Thanks again for filling me in.

By messager I was referring to myself, and the fact I did not watch it all so had no idea of quality.

I’m looking for these clips from the ML 55 bumper. Can anyone help me with the part number? There are 4 clips I believe.

Try these.
Same clips I believe, used on the fender flares for ML55s and the sport option flares.

I can’t find that part number, where can I get it?
Meaning your local stealership or online MB parts does not have it or?

Yes what country do you live in? Maybe that’s why? Usually our part numbers start with 163

Canada.
That's odd.
starting with 163 - Not necessarily. Many of the fasteners are used across the models.

Here's another 2 examples:


This style clip also comes in a smaller and identical match (been there....)

As to why USD MB stealership does not show anything with the original part# I provided to you (AND it's the same part # provided by US fleabay seller...... 🤷‍♂️
