Smile 1972 280SE Need Grease fitting location diagram

I have had 1972 280SE for several years. I have not taken great care with it, but my MB mechanic friend suggested that I forget my 1987 300SDL and use the 280SE as a "forever car!" It runs quite well, seems to have 69K original miles.
So, I want to start treating it better. I would like to have a diagram of the grease fittings so that I don't miss any.

Off topic but it shows you joined in 2002 and this is your first post, accurate?
I say you and your mechanic are wise indeed, good choice. Keep her happy with lots of grease since these little pigs love to stay "dirty", enjoy those cars!
