W116 rear antenna location

Post by ngruzevs » Sun 03 Jun, 2018 7:29 am

Folks, I need to drill a hole to install a Hirschmann antenna on my 79 450SE. I've scoured the web, but unable to find the exact location. Need something like what's detailed in following URL.

https://www.sl113.org/wiki/Electrical/Antenna

Alternatively if someone could provide some measurements from corner of boot (to centre of antenna) and from edge of rear LHS quarter panel (to centre of antenna).

BTW, I do have all the antenna and coaxial pre-wiring, but don't have an antenna hole.
