For kicks we tried 100W bulbs in the low, high and fog lamps of my dad's 72 300SEL 3.5. I'm surprised the wiring and alternator put up with it for any amount of time.

It looked something like this but all black...

The only thing I can think of is the paper towel rack mounted inside the trunk lid. Works good, unless it's really windy when I open the trunk and forget to grab the roll before it unrolls. Seems like I forget to install the CB half the time.

I like that CB mount. I just had some jacks shift in my trunk and put a big dent right there, figure CB upgrade might be nice to cover the dent and have some folks to chat with on my bi annual drives between california and colorado.
