77' 450SL soft top hinge help!

All,

new member here enjoying all the great data on this forum!
I have my dad's old 77 SL, and have certainly enjoyed keeping it up, but recently have run into soft top deployment issues. My brother had this car for years - and I recently discovered that many of the parts in the soft top hinge area were bent and/or missing.

I recently purchased all the related pieces (though I still need to source the springs, as they aren't on either side!) But the problem is I can't find an appropriate diagram on where everything goes.

Possibly one of you with a similar vintage top may either take a picture of this hinge, or point me to where I may find such?

thanks in advance!
Tom
