W115 Interior Help

Hi all

Just managed to get a manual 1976 W115 and was wondering has anyone ever changed the gear knob on one before?

As to be honest its horrible!

Second question I bought a new radio for the car as the one that came with the car had seen better days. I got one from eBay that was reconditioned and said would fit the W115 model but when I gave it to my audio garage to fit they said that the hole in the dash is too big for the radio and that I need some sort of facia plate to make it fit such as this…..


any ideas where to get one? Ive looked and can't seen any for my car nor have I seen any W115 with them in. The car originally came with the blanking plate that went over the radio hole and the owner decided at some point to put a radio in that fitted the whole but wasn't secured in place if that makes sense. Anyone had any experience fitting a radio in the W115 models if so am I missing a major part?
