Thanks to this group, I was advised how to take the front
star off - very simple when you know how. (Mine are getting
stolen too often.)
Unfortunately, it leaves a big hole in the hood with
cut-outs in it for the locking piece - so I just put it
Does anyone have any good ideas as to what could cover this
hole and still look cosmetically good and in keeping with
the car? I am thinking of machining up a rounded-off disk
of stainless steel with a retaining screw of some sort on
the back - perhaps even engraving a flat MB star on it - but
its not designed yet!
BTW, can the springy star mount be removed from the round
disk part so that it can go back on? This would leave a
smaller hole to fill or cover.
Thanks for all replies,
Roger Jones, P.Eng.
