WTB 300D (W123) Hood, grill and hinges.

So my hood, grill have meet an untimely death and the hood hinges are all tweaked to the point where the bind enough that I'm not going to try and sort them out as well.
So I'm looking for replacement pieces for the hood, grill/shell and both hood hinges. As a unit or pieces and Color does not matter as they will be getting re-painted. Close to the Gaithersburg MD (20878) area. Willing to drive and pick up within reason.

I have an extra grill, chrome metal surround, the 7 aluminum bars, hood ornament, and blue medalion (all one unit). Not sure on shipping in the event you go that route. $50.00 for the whole deal, with "grey" plastic insert painted black or I got an extra grey one. So, $50.00 plus whatever shipping is.

Thanks I'll ping you back in a day or 2 Figure shipping via USP ground to 20878 if you could. I'm still waiting of the Ins estimate.

As of now I may do the repairs myself to save the labor $$$ if the fenders and unit body are undamaged. Iím worried about the area around the hood hinges and I'm not sure what's involved with replacing/repairing the cowel between the hood and windscreen.

Heads up on the grill deal. You will need a gasket most likely. I have 3 of them also. There are either 5 or 7 screws holding the grill to the hood. Be careful not to lose them. There is a built in recess where they fall and they never return ... LOL. The screws are 10mm (I think from memory, maybe 8mm). They look like thick machine screws, but they are unique to the hood. Do not try to mix or match or you will have a headache. All those repairs are easy enough for a DIYer. You will need a second set of hands to mount the hood, however.

Wife put me on a tight budget so I'm trying to get everything I need for around $200 which may be a tall order. A also need a good used windshield/trim and a cowl panel which is welded in so it's going to take some time to drill one out.
