Stupid Question #Ugh?

Okay guys, here it is. Help me to understand the chassis numbers. I've an 82 300DT Which I believe ould make it a 123. I've got a grill coming in for a 126 300SD. Will they interchange? A quick education on the subject please.

No they will not "interchange". You need a 123 grill for a 123 car.

Slightly more descriptive;

The 126 grille will be too wide and too short. Now find someone in need of the 126 grille and sell it to them, or see if they have a 123 grille to swap even up.

Thanks Germanstar for that shameless bit off self promotion! (you gained yourself a customer amigo) Fortuantely, I hven't purchased it yet. (Won a auction on E-Bay) Anyone had any dealings with Mercantile Europarts in Miami? Again, I appreciate the help

I bought an antena mast from them. I paid for the item and they delivered it on time, but they forgot to include the installation instructions as promised.

Before I bought the part, they were very responsive and answered every e-mail question I had immediately, but after the part delivered, I couldn't get them to answer the e-mail.

Luckily, I kept the FedEx or UPS delivery receipt, and it showed their address and phone number.

I had to call them to get them to fax over the instructions.

We shouldn't judge an entity on one screwup. Sounds like more positives than negatives. Fortunately, I'm all over the country every week and can show up on someones doorstep without notice if a problem arises. Makes it nice
