Ian just wanted you to know I got the cover yesterday and it is in the shop as I type being painted to match my grill Thank You and this forum for making the hard to get parts not so hard to find.:bowdown::bowdown:Hopefully it can be painted to match mine sort of an offwhite I will buy it
This is an essential tip to all new 500SL owners... only had mine a month and I popped off the tow eye cover on the gentlest of kissing a curb. Only when I saw how much it was going to cost me did I drive back the 200 mile round-trip to the station (2 days later) and found it exactly where is had popped off into the bushes... lucky!Once y'all get your expensive new tow hook covers installed be sure to secure both of them to the car with long black vinyl zip ties ... you can lace the zip tie through the mesh and then loop it around any nearby bumper support. This is very cheap insurance and is essentially invisible.
