You get the edit button (and the ability to send PMs) once you've made 15 posts (and allowed the system a little time to notice and register the fact).OOPS, where is the edit button?
That's much better than another post I read where they cut the bumper. There are a number of straight swap grilles available, but they 1,2,3 slats, I prefer the look of the 4 slat.
Thank you!You get the edit button (and the ability to send PMs) once you've made 15 posts (and allowed the system a little time to notice and register the fact).
To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
There are plenty to see on Google if you look at the images. I'm favouring the 3-slat - or even the single slat (but that looks too much like an R171...)There are a number of straight swap grilles available, but they 1,2,3 slats, I prefer the look of the 4 slat.
Thanks. I did see two model numbers in the German PDF I referenced in my earlier post, so I'll go digging too.I will post some of the car shortly, I know zip about MB model numbers, but after reading several old posts on the subject, and no record of which Grille was used, it seems from the pictures they were talking about the 2006 CLK (W209?) and found this on eBay listed as A209/W209.... so took a punt.
Still looking. I've got three ebay windows open on my PC comparing SLK-only and CLK grilles side-by-side as I type this!Any luck with finding a Grille?
They all claim you can use the badge on your old grille but without having their grille in your hands you can't work out what star you need. Grr...Also have to watch the fitting, some seem to be twist and lock, some are clipped in. What about the breakers? What size badge does yours need, will your old/current badge fit?
Or.......Bleach, apparently.Can always black plastidip the chrome 4 coats + 3 coats of glossifier to cover the chrome and mask everything else.
1 can of black plastip = $6-$8
1 can plastidip glossifier = $7-$9
About an hour of your time all and all.
