124 Euro headlight installation and face repair after crash

My bro's 1991 300D 2.5 got smashed in the front (don't ask how ).


After getting a core support and a hood from a car the same color at a wrecking yard, we took the car to a local body shop where he replaced the core support. A new radiator and used condenser fan unit was installed:


I posted a thread in the wanted section for a set of 124 headlights (thread seems to be deleted), and Sixto came through with a nice set of Euro's. My bro had a nice set of 116 Euros, so a straight across trade was made.

I was told that the 4 pin plugs needed to be changed out to 6 pin, so a trip to my parts stash and I had two 6 pin plugs in hand.

The 6 pin plug installed:


The finished product:


We still need to get a new bumper and hood star, but the car can now be driven. Thanks Sixto for the great headlights!

Ouch on the damage. Looks like it was only the hood part & core support got damaged. Lucky to find a same color hood.
Looks even better with the euro headlights.

Thanks. I am thankful that I found a body shop (referral from a friend) that estimated only $400 to replace the core support that was provided. When I picked the car up, he only charged $350. I got the car detailed today, so I will get and post a photo later.
