W108 original paint condition - underside of hood?
I'm in the process of restoring the cosmetics of the engine compartment of a 1972 280SEL 4.5. The underside of the hood of the car appears to have remnants of an insulating pad that either deteriorated or burned. In addition, the cross support members appear to have been resprayed in a non original color. See attached photo.) If anyone has a photo of the underside of the hood of a W108 of similar vintage in it's original condition, or knows what the original paint condition would have been, I would really appreciate a reply. Thanks!
