Take a look at Rod and Custom Magazine, Hot Rod Magazine or other similar ones - I see articles all the time (and advertisements) on doing that kind of thing. Do you plan on doing it personally, or having someone do it for you?

Are you talking about bagging a w114 or w108?

I have just finished bagging my w114. Pics attached. W108 are easier to bag. Let me know if you need more details. If you are in Australia I have a guy that can supply all the parts you need but it will also need a bit of customising work to get it engineered and street legal.

W108 alot easier to bag than 114. You will get it laying frame so long as you dont put big wheels on it.

I believe its just the standard bag kit you would use for old chevys, fords, etc. Drop in and bolt up. I recommend accuair as there stuff seems to be the best on the market at the moment. You should only have to run a 150 or 175psi system aswell. My W114 is running 200psi because I had to run 5inch bags in the front for clearance issues.
