1988 560SL

Hey, help; I'm wondering how I am going to deal with the hard top on my brand new '88 560SL; any creative solutions for removal/storage. On the storage front, I am a city guy w/a small house and garage. Also, all of the 560's I looked @ during the prepurchase search had a major wear spot on the outside of the drivers seat. What's this?

RE: 1988 560SL

I have found that awinching system from the ceiling of your garage, that hoists the top on and off is the best when you have storage and space issues. These can be power actuated or a simple block and tackle approach. There have been a few write ups on this and several companies who make them.

Where do you mean by "the outside of the driver's seat"?

Do you mean the side of the seat? If so, this is from people getting in and out of the car . . .

Bryan
