  1. Yeah maybe. I’m starting to lean that way a little. 🤔
  2. I actually visit that site quite a bit. It’s pretty useful but not for this 😞 They are very specific about overseas one piece bumpers being chrome but the 3 piece North America isn’t really answered. This line in particular is rather ambiguous: North America required the large bumpers while other countries got a choice, including still-boxy but lighter bumpers and simple full-chrome versions. Still doesn’t describe if the larger is chromed or not. Ugh! At least it says they are steel. I have taken the end caps off so no problem there. I got some that were in a little better shape than mine so I reconditioned and swapped them. The bumpers did have rust that I removed so it makes me wonder if the chrome was an option which mine didn’t get. Or did the chrome come off if that’s even a thing and that’s why the rust. I’m on the fence if chroming mine is a good look. I feel like it’s too shiny so all you see is BUMPER and then car. You know what I mean? But maybe between the end caps and rubber strips maybe it won’t be so obnoxious. I love me some don’t get me wrong. I’m not sure of the look with the car as a whole.
  3. Put the magnet on this morning and we have contact. Anyone know if they chrome plated these? Just about everything was an option on that car so I’m wondering if some rolled out strait metal with some kind of protectant or if having it chrome plated was an option or was standard.
  4. Anybody know what metal the bumpers are on a 210 (B310)? I can’t do the magnet test til tomorrow but I was hoping someone could tell me exactly what they are. I was looking to get them polished but it helps to know what I’m dealing with.
  5. The hatchback doors are a little shorter than that of the sedan 2-door. Doors and glass won’t work between the two. Windshields are also not the same. I was hoping I could get hatchback doors to keep as spares myself but measurements proved the hatchback was short (I acquired a parts catalog later). I can tell you that the door panels are the same. I was able to use those but that was it. Mike is right the wagon and 4-door sedan have different part numbers for the doors and door glass. Winshield is also different.

    These emblems were created by making a mold of an OEM emblem and casting from that mold. Since these were made from NOS 30+ year old plastic the flaws will be minimal (only noticeable up close). You will need to use double stick tape to apply these as they have no pins. I recommend the 3M brand with the red liner which you can get at any auto store. It's easy to remove by running dental floss or fishing line under it and the tape will peel right off without damage to the emblem or fender. To apply, place the tape on the back of the emblem. Hit the emblem with a hair dryer for a few minutes to soften the plastic. It will form to your fender better. Peel off the tape liner and place on your fender. Yes, you will receive a pair. If you do not like the emblems you receive you may return them as long as they are in the condition in which they were received (not after attempting to apply with tape or any other adhesive). Please give location when ordering so I can give you proper shipping cost. They will come via USPS in a flat rate small box. I have one set ready to go to test the waters but I can make these to order. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Shipping to contiguous 48 states and Canada only.

    I got all this time on my hands so I'm making these again. There will be flaws (only noticeable up close) since these are castings made from an original 30+ year old emblem. These will not have the pins in the back to push into the fender. I had molded some to have the pins but because the material I use for casting is different than the OEM material the pins never hold correctly. You will need to use double stick tape which I actually am using on my 210 right now. I recommend the 3M brand with the red liner which you can get at any auto store. It's easy to remove by running dental floss under it and the tape will peel right off without damage to the emblem or fender. I also recommend getting a Krylon silver leafing pen. I used this to paint the lettering and if you ever need to do touch ups you'll be using the same thing. The pen is available at most art stores. If you are interested in a set I'm selling for $25 plus shipping. ALL HAVE SOLD. If you're interested or have questions let me know. I can make these to order.

  10. True. It’s because they haven’t been able to find toilet paper to wipe their ass.
  11. Usually but unless you want to be on My 600 Pound Life you better put them clothes in the closet and get back on it.
