Will post updates in my 560 thread (building a garage/workshop at home at present myself as really need more room first to spread out, so i can work properly on my coupes as i do most of the work myself)
I believe a member found at least some of the missing (?) pics and restored them.Hey! What's happened to a lot of the pics in this thread?
There has to be another explanation.Moved to the amg for lol
In reading this am I understanding that the euro bumpers do "NOT" have the rolled steel inserted in them? Because that would help explain why my US and Euro rears weigh the same, the rear does have a rolled steel insert.both euro bumpers were federalized well, reinforced with 24mm solid steel rod spanning between each bumper mount and bolted on. so it made for a very easy de-federalization.
weight saving between the US and euro is approx 16-17 lbs per bumper.
to mount front euro bumper onto a US spec chassis it required lopping off the tacked on US spec tow hook and minor nibble off the frame rail mount.
That makes sense then! The rear Euro I have come off of my 107026 which was clearly federalized in California. The inside of the (euro) bumpers does have the rolled steel.Euro Cars imported to the US had to be federalized and the DOT stations added steel beams inside the doors and steel inside the Euro bumpers. Original Euro bumpers do not have the steel inserts, just the fiberglass/plastic reinforcements and aluminum bumper mountings.
