124 Trunk lid stop replacement

I spent $78 - Genuine MB parts -- to replace the trunk lid stops on the old 124. (did the rubber gasket seal today also) Soon enough these parts will be like hens teeth to find - like others. Thought I'd post a picture. No real comment on the job - not a troublesome thing to change and maybe not the greatest use of funds - but just one more step towards the nirvana of a restored no-spark beast. The comment is about how MB engineers decided to make this into a fairly complex thing. Talk about something being engineered...or well engineered or over engineered. Not sure which applies here.
