Lightbulb WTB: Photos of 96-97 E320 under hood fusebox wiring

We are trying to repair the wiring on a 1997 E320 (US spec), and we need an album of close-up photos of the wiring on the passenger-side fusebox/computer box. We'll pay you (by check or paypal). We will likely have other photo needs in the future, if you want this to be a recurring gig.

Please note that it has to be a 1996 or 1997 E320. Other models won't work.

No technical expertise required to take these photos. Just take photos of what's visible, and post them on Picasaweb or wherever else you prefer. There's no other E320 where we are, so we can't take such photos ourselves.

I have a US 97 E320. I'm on vacation right now but will be home tomorrow evening. I can take pic then and post. I'm confused about the fuse box thou. It's on the drivers side? The ecu and some circuits are on the passenger side.

SPVF,

Thanks very much. I mean the ECU box area on passenger's side. The more detailed close up pictures of that area, the better. Compensation: I was thinking $25, but I'll pay you whatever you think is reasonable (in addition to my gratitude). I'll likely have more photo requests for you in the future.

The back story, in case you care: My friend bought this E320 new in 1997, and it developed some kind of transmission problem in 1999. No MB dealer here, so my friend had an "independent" mechanic working on it, and this mechanic's way of "fixing" was to cut wires and rip out parts. Then the car sat for 10 years (!!!) and mice got to the wires, until I bought the car from my friend, as a project car, in 2011. So we're trying to restore wiring that was ruined by the incompetent mechanic cutting stuff, and also eaten by mice. To further complicate matters, my mechanics don't speak English, so formal wiring diagrams aren't of much use, and color pictures are key.

The good thing about the car is other than the damage of the incompetent mechanic, the mice, and sitting in the sun for a decade, the car is mint. Only 15K miles.
