Need SD Hood

Ok, I've found a painter and need a good hood for my 85SD. Shipping price has been prohibitive on the ones I've found. Who has a reasonably priced hood near middle Tennessee? The local salvage yard just crushed all of the 126s because they wre "too old".

I do. PM sent. I still have the hood from the blue w126 in this thread:
FS: parts off of 2 w126 gassers

Do you want it?

FYI, SD hoods are aluminum, SE (gassers) are steel.

Hey Whiskeydan ---

Were all 300SD original hoods aluminum? It wasn't some sort of strange option, was it?

Why did MB do that? Weight?


I also have an SD hood from this parts car:
FS: parts off of a 1982 300SD
but I don't think Junkman wants it

Not only SD hoods, but trunk lids lids as well were aluminum.

I have a silver one from an '84 in good shape. I'm in northern Virginia if that's not too far a drive for you. Please respond to juergenhbr@ieee.org. Thanks.

Rust spots coming in on rock chips. Hood and trunk lid. Funny for aluminum to do that don't you think.

I thought only the W116 300SDs had aluminium body panels? The hood and truck lid on my 91 are steel AFAIK.
