    So I was driving one my dads cars. 87 mercedes 560 SL with 18k miles on it... I wrecked the shit out of it.... The hood and front bumper is messed up. I put the car cover back own hoping he wont notice till I fix it. The hood and front bumper is messed up. If any one has these parts or knows of a cheap place I can get them Please post! :ugh:

    I found quite a few parts for your fathers car all over the US. Check out this web site:

    www.car-part.com

    Best site for finding used parts. It searches all the wrecking yards in the either the US, your state, your area, or even your city.

    Good luck with it.

    If I was your father and that was my car, I would probably kill you.

    It might not seem like the best thing to do, but I would be honost with him from the start. He'll have more respect for you in the long run. Tell him that you are working fixing the car for him, but the main thing is TELL him. If you were my son and wrecked my car and didnt tell me about it (whether you were going to fix it or not), I would not trust you, but if you owned up to your fuck up I would think you were more of a man.

    no disrespect, but the thread starter is looking for parts rather than advice on his family life.

    Screw that, buy the parts you need, install them, then grab a tub of wax and wax that whole area. Try waxing while your dad is around and get it nice and hazy so when you polish it the subliminal before and after is HUGE. You can pull it off and then there is no harm done. And if you can't find the right colors get any color and while its off of the car have it painted the right color then install it. This isn't splitting atoms or anything its pretty basic mechanics.
