W108 bumpers on w115

Does anybody know if W108 bumpers would fit on a W115 I have fabricating skills and welding

Not looking for a perfect factory looking fit just something to replace my US spec diving boards.

Thanks in advance for your input

Why not buy W115 bumpers from a pre-73 car?

Check to see if the 108 still has the hydrocompensator on the rear axle. If so you could buy it, sell it (if it still works) and that would go a long way towards buying the 115 bumpers.

swap

I had a similar suggestion,
Buy the 108 bumper and sell it to get the "right" w114/5 bumper.
That way you keeping some more parts in circulation....

I can't imagine it fitting. And storing and shipping a bumper is a pain.
