Question 85 300DT Back Bumper Needed

1985 300D Turbo
The back end is smashed. You may have seen it on Ebay. Well, now it's mine and it's time to fix 'er up. What a great running car. My first Benz-I'm super proud. I could go on for hours....as I'm sure you can imagine. She just got me home 15 hours through that hellatious snowstorm that hit Northen Kentucky and Southern Ohio. She kept me warm, too.
Here's the parts I think I'll need:
Back bumper-needs to be near perfect, since the rest of the car is the same.
Right Taillight Assembly- including the lens.
Left Taillight Lens- the one that's on it is fine, but I'm thinking that if I put a new one on the right, it's going to look different from the left one. Anybody please advise if I'm not thinking right here.
If anyone can advise which models I have to choose from for these parts, I would highly appreciate it.
Thanks for the help.
Jay

What kind of prices am I looking at?
Any idea of shipping rates for a bumper?
I'll have my body man look at it on Tuesday of next week. I think he'll be able to pull out the quarter panel. If not, I may be looking for a quarter panel as well. If the deck lid is too tweaked, it may need replaced as well. Maybe even part of the bottom of the trunk.

See your body man first then get back to me with a parts list. There is an 85 sitting in a yard down here in new orleans with everything you will need. Personally, I don,t think the rear 1/4 panel can be saved. I think you may be look at a dollar figure that surpasses value

I guess I should mention that the body work isn't going to cost me anything but parts. The labor is free. I think I'll be ok with the overall value at that point. The rest of the car is extremely nice and the engine runs fantastic.
I think one of the mechanics in Jackson where I bought the car may have mentioned your yard in New Orleans.
Hopefully, I won't need major parts beyond the bumper and 1/4 panel. I know I'll need seals, light fixture, lens cover, etc...
I'll let you know after I see my body man.
Thanks.
Jay

Quarter Panel etc

Let me know what you need... I have a number of 123/s and I have one that I am parting out with a good quarter panel etc.. I will price you the parts but you will need to meet me and pickup parts around Cincinatti... Jim
