Junkyard Shopping

Hey everyone,

My half million mile 126 is beginning to rust through on its front fenders and I'm looking to find some replacements for it. Could someone steer me in the right direction? Ideally it'd be nice to find some in a junkyard so I don't have to repaint them and so they'd be fairly inexpensive. Problem is, I don't even know where to start. The car won't run forever but I figured that it can't hurt to at least look to see if I can't find something out there that will patch her up a little bit.

Thanks in advance!

PS: The car is a Black '91 350SD.

Too bad you are so far away, there was a black 126 at at our local Pick n pull.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

I have used them many times over the years, have purchased hoods, and doors, they were always able to supply the same color.
Nice to see another '91 350SD exceeding 500,000 miles, by my count that makes at least three of us, so far. Who would have guessed, the infamous 350SD/350SDL and three of them exceeding 500,000 miles.

'87 560 SL 150,000
'94 SL500 40,000
'91 350SD 513,000
'94 SL5000 60,000
'91 350SDL 545,000
'91 350SD 197,000
'00 E55 AMG 77,000
