Ok, so I bought a hood ornament from Ebay for my car...

Mine arrived in 3-pieces? I didn't expect that, and yet I am trying to figure out how am I supposed to put this in my car. It came with a small black metal kind of u-shaped piece. The hood ornament and base, and a funky black thing. I am pretty sure that helps lock under the hood.

I am terrible at explaining, so I included a couple pictures. All I know it's off a 1985 300E. I hope it's the right one I needed.

Can anybody tell me this looks like the proper hood ornament for a 1989 300E, and how to attach it properly?

Do they usually come in one piece when bought, or did he take it apart for no real reason? In the picture it came as one piece, should I ask him why the heck he took it apart? :confused:
The guy I bought my car from, TAR'd it to re-install it from when someone pulled it off. He was too cheap to buy an original with the proper mounting hardware. I need to use a heat gun to remove it, I would have bought a button badge if I couldn't afford a new star replacement. I personally think the original owner was an idiot.
