Question Exactly where does my 126 chassis need regular lubrication?

I started changing my 420SEL's oil on my own about a year ago. When I used to take the car into a shop for normal oil changes, the tech would also "lube" under the vehicle where appropriate, and that's my question:

Exactly what points should I periodically be re-lubricating under my 1989 420SEL? And also, does it matter what type of grease I purchase and apply?

I really enjoy performing the car's basic maintainance on my own; but naturally, I don't want to neglect anything out of ignorance.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Change vital fluids and filters at indicated intervals and lubricate the door, hood and trunk lid hinges. There are no grease zerks that I'm aware of.

Good luck,

I agree with Larry Bible, there are no grease zerks under the car. There are nipples in each door hinge that need grease pumped in though.
