Coil stickers, though I dont think mine look like that, the bottom one is missing entirely and the top one has a graphic of an explosion and perhaps the word Transis**

If you google, most of them have the Bosch 12V sticker on them.

both are  50x25mm

The coil stickers are correct except the bottom sticker should say "made in Germany", they are hard to source and I found them in Poland as they suit the early Porsche 911.

Peter

Its just the Yellow and Red Bosch sticker we need, I'll have a look today and post a photo of the correct top sticker for the coil.

You can see a part of the Bosch coil in the pic below. Bottom-right corner.
This is how it comes from MB these days.There's two other stickers on it.

Yes the new coils have three stickers and the Bosch sticker has dropped the "made in Germany" as they are now made elsewhere.
I will now spend the next 15 minutes admiring the photo of your engine bay Mr Ptashek, fresh nickel plating and Icon Gold in the engine bay makes it look like gods own jewellery box.

He's doing this to spite me, I am sure.. >:(

I've got an old, dried out and curled, A1175843921 so dimensions may not be super accurate: 76mm x 73mm (WxH)

What is the tag tied in the wires coming out of the fuse box?  My car only had the wire left there.

I have a concern about some of the decals.  On most of the W116 cars, the decals that were affixed to the radiator were originally not what is available now. They looked like maybe they were an opaque plastic stencil that was gummed on the back side.  (there is a name for what I am trying to describe, I just don't know what it is called)  Is trying to reproduce that particular type of decal useless or too expensive, or not desirable?

1973 300sel 4.5, silver blue metallic/blue leather
1979 450sel 516 red/bamboo

Personally, I would want the same size, same color, same model as the original.
Besides that, I would not vote for genuine reproductions whenever plain paper is involved.
Better to have those remade in waterproof plastic, so they don't fade and deteriorate like their ancestors.
No doubt that some hard-core purists have different ideas about that, but that's just my personal take on this.
I would not, however, want to see aluminum stickers replaced by plastic. That's would not be an improvement
