I have no idea about the 300 grill.

Scott,

thanks for the great photos.  I do not believe I have those brackets for the combination gauge.  I will look when I get home but if not I can rig something up.  I have not seen them for sale anywhere.  I easily could put some modern sound protection there.  I will think about that.  It would also have to go on the floor, under the transmission cover in the center.  Easy enough to put on.

Another question...  Do you know if the Grill on the 220 is the same as for a 300?

Regarding the "padding".  I assume it is more for noise reduction, than temperature control. 
I don't know if it is something that is usually replaced in a restoration.
Since it's not easily visible, I guess it is up to you if you want to replace it with something.  There are probably lots of modern options.  I have no idea if that original material is available.
I hope others will have input here.

Here are a few photo's that I tried to get showing the metal brackets holding the Combination Gauge to the dash.
Two brackets.  One at each end.  One held in place by the oil line connection. The other end is held in place by the stud for the Ground wire.

The photo's are not as sharp as I had wanted, but trying to get the camera behind the dash was tricky.

Is this padding behind the dash necessary or would you install the dash with nothing.  The padding was removing in the installation.  Can't find it. 

Put nothing in its place or
Put something in its place?

thanks!

I'm traveling this week so I can't take photo's.
This is from memory. . . .  .   . What was your question??

Just kidding.

Your switch is like mine, or very, very similar.
The gauge cluster is held in place by a "U-shaped" metal bracket that is held in place by two threaded metal studs with nuts on the back of the cluster.  The ends of the metal bracket, when in place, touch the back of the metal dash.  The rest of the bracket is just above the back of the gauges so that when the nuts are snugged up, it pulls the cluster against the front of the dash.
Hopefully someone will provide better information.  It will be next weekend before I can get a chance to see mine again, or even access my stock of existing photos.

Does anyone know what the Heater Blower Switch looks like?  Photo... or part number.  Mine looks like an aftermarket one but I am not sure.  It is the switch that would control the fans if one has them installed.

And does anyone know what holds the gas/oil gauge onto the dash?  Is it tape?  I don't have any photos of what held it in place.

I got my dash back from the painter and have laid out the wiring.  Scary looking.  My old wire to the right and the new, neat stuff to the left.  This is going to take a while but I was pretty good with labels and photos...

Scott,

can you post a photo.  Hopefully, I can see if it is the same as mine.  Also, if you get a chance this morning, can you give me a call. 

I have a question about motor parts.

thanks!  I will PM my phone #.

I'm sure Henry has more information. . . .
However, mine was painted in 2008.
My notes report: MB423 "Tobacco Brown", Glasurit.
I think it looks like the same color as the original, from what I recall.

If you want a photo, or maybe a sample of the paint, let me know. 
I have a small bottle of the extra paint that might still be usable.
