The Hood Pad for my 190E was ordered from "The Parts Bin LLP." (www.thebenzbin.com) which cost $45.00. 3M Super 77 was subtituted for 3M Super weather strip which was not available in this area. The cost is about $10.00 a can.
I placed an old sheet over the engine and removed the existing pad as completely as possible. It's best to get help when placing the new pad, because when it sticks it's stuck.
The new pad has been on the car for a week and looks great.
Hope this helps.
