Pic Request: Stock trunk upolstry photos, 1971 280se

Next project is to redo the trunk. Could someone please post a picture of what the trunk upholstery looked like stock? Was the underside trunk lid painted the same color as the car? Was the trunk painted black? What did the cloth/vinyl matt look like? Can i buy it anywhere?

Car is a 1971 280se

The trunk is painted black, as is the underside of the lid. There are cardboard liners on the side and a runner mat. The arrangement is the same for the W110 fintail, the W111,W112 fintails and for the W108, W109's and for, maybe, the W113 SL's.

The problem with the rubber mat is that water, moisture, gets under it and stays there, causing rust.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
