Where to drill for the antenna?

I bought an 280SE, 1970 some time ago, since the both front fenders are replaced by new ones there is no hole for me to install the electric antenna. Question is: Where on the right fender is the hole supposed to be located for correct original looking installation? Picture anyone?
A friende told me that I should go for left back instead to save the fenders from holes, but I dont know...

Best Regards

Welcome to BenzWorld, Ulrik Sjoberg! I found this pic that should give you a pretty good idea.
