W113: Proof that areas behind grill were painted in black.
I am doing a restoration of my 1969 280SL that has never been previously restored, and I can clearly see that the satin black was painted OVER the body color.
In my case since my car's color is white, is it very easy to see.
It is impressive how many so called "experts" do 50,000 plus Euro restorations and get this obvious detail wrong - (together with painting the lower rocker panel in body color).
