Bumper parts for 76 450sl (r107)

Gang...
Just got an e-mail from the body shop where my car is being restored. They need a couple of parts that I am hoping someone out there is willing to sell off of a parts car. I haven't found any at the local salvage yards. Now, I haven't seen these parts...nor do I know part numbers or anything like that...the description from the body shop is:

"We need the stud and rubber mount that goes between the right front fender and the rubber bumper end on the right side and the rubber “fin” that goes between the rear quarter panel and bumper on the left rear."

This goes on a 1976 450SL (R107 body). If anyone can help me out, please let me know !

These show up occasionally on eBay. But if you are restoring the car, you may be disappointed in the quality of an 18-30 year old part. ON the "fin", I have cleaned up a used one with some 240-320 grit wetordri sanding under very hot water with some extra elbow grease. This takes off the dead layer on top of the rubber. It's not that visible. On the "bumper" part, I think they can be had new for maybe $40-75. Again, you may be disappointed in what is available used. These do not respond as well to sanding and because of the nature of the part, tend to get beat up anyway.

The third part you mention sounds like the outside rear rubber that attached to the bumper and wraps around. These are available OE for maybe $150. If you can get a used one, these respond to wetordri "skinning".

Okay...I've been able to confirm 2 of the 3 pieces they are looking for.
#1-On the front bumper, I need the Right side Rubber Bumper Face Bar (this goes between the chrome bumper and the front right quarter panel.) A107 880 16 70 I believe.

#2-On the rear bumper, I need the Left side Rubber Bumpler Face Bar (this goes between the chrome bumper and the rear left quarter panel.) A 107 880 05 71 I believe.

Still waiting on more info on the last piece from the body shop.....
