SLK bumper / fender bracket

Hi all ,
Doing some rust removal on my 320, when I removed the front wings (fenders) the bracket that fastens to the bumper and front of the wing had completely rusted away. I intend to remove the small amount of rusty metal left and replace with a new bracket.
Mercedes have thoughtfully provided a hole in the bodywork to allow the bracket to be bolted to the shell with an 8mm bolt so I'll make a slotted 8mm hole to allow a little repositioning when fitting, I will probably have to refit the bumper to get the bracket aligned correctly, remove the bumper and fit the wings.
I made a cardboard template and cut the brackets out of a sheet of 1.5mm sheet steel with an angle grinder and a 1mm cutting disc.
Going to try and attach photos of the size details and the bracket, new wings arriving Friday.
Regards Stuart
