Yeah. Here are a few reference shots from the Wrath of Khan model. I've circled the areas of interest for you. Like I mentioned at the start of this thread, these detail graphics are not found on any other studio models other than that engineering section close up model... so I'm using a lot of creative license to do all this.
In fact, upon looking at these references photos again - with fresh eyes - I can see that my graphics (especially the black marks) might need to be a little bit smaller in scale. But I thin I want to wait until they are all done so I can see it in context of the entire ship.
