1970+71 280SE 3.5 Short Grille Question...

I have been lucky enough to acquire a "low grille" + front fenders off '70 280SE 3.5. convertible that meet it demise years ago. They are in good to excellent condition and have been stored away for years.

I understand that the grilles on the 3.5 V8's where lower/smaller.correct?
I assume the hood was different (lower) than non-3.5's?

But, are the front fenders also different from a non-3.5 SE?

If one wanted to update to the 3.5 look from a '69 280SE what items would I need?

Can anyone play historian and fill me in or direct me to a web site that can?
