1971 280se foglight/turnsignal info

SO my 1971 280se v-8 conv has a couple of cheap 1980's hella spots where the turn signal/fog lights should go. It has 2 half inch holes drilled above each other on each side where they were fixed on. One hole is on the sloped part behind the fender and the other hole is in the vertical bodywork.

I can have these holes filled before the paint is applied but am trying to work out the correct lamp and fixing. I am guessing from pics I have seen of these cars that the lower behind fender hole should not be there and the turn signals are fixed directly to the bodywork rather than via a bracket.
Could someone tell me the correct light fixture and hole configuration so i can get the right thing. eBay has lights that do not show the rear workings and also has cone types that look incorrect for a w111.

Thanks

Adrian
