190E drain holes near front jacking points?

My 190E has/had some rust around both front jack points under the car. On the passenger side it wasn't so bad, but on the driver's side a huge chunk of the floor pan fell off when hit with a hammer... Anyways, this weekend I welded some new steel on the passenger's side and it is repaired. However, I was wondering if there are supposed to be some drainage holes in that area. Both sides are rusted, so the original hole probably fell off. Here's what it looked like before I cut and welded everything:



It is a sunroof car if it makes a difference (where does it drain?)

Could someone quickly snap a picture of the jack point area to show where the drain hole should be if there is one?

I don't believe there are any drains in the floor, but there may be one in each sill. The sunroof has four drains...the two in the front end up behind the fenders, just forward of the door posts. The two rear drains exit through the "gills" at the base of the C pillar.

These drain holes were only put in place for the pre-painting dipping part of the manufacturing process. They are all bunged up with bungs and often painted over with the dreaded Mercedes rubberised under seal.
