Need a new fender...

...I was closing in to the intersection. I had the right of way. I could see, that he doesn't pay attention to the other cars. I stopped instead of slaming into him. But her still hit the front corner.

Great. Need a new fender, new bumper, new headlight, new headlightwiper.

I love those days.

Kind regards
Eberhard

Eric : in your sig it says :"rare to W123" Burled Walnut Trim.

Well, the star was already gone.

The problem is not the fender or the matching of the color (thanks good it is white)

The problem is the piece the fender is attached. It is warped.

First estimate was around $ 3000 to get it fixed. If it works well, the insurance will pay. The car is in such a good shape and was published in car magazins, I will probably get a good estimate.

Good thing is, the other party was guilty. So I don't have to worry about costs.

Kind regards
Eberhard

Rough estimate for parts needed:

EUR 1358

Without work, without paintwork.

Kind regards
Eberhard

I think the insurance company has to get new parts on a car this old.
