Post Hello from Houston

I just purchased a 1977 450sl for an awesome price. It is in great condition. Everything is original and I am the 3rd owner. The 2nd owner bought it in 1982 and kept it garaged mostly. It has 66,000 miles and it runs great! The soft top needs replacing, the seats need to be re-upholstered, and it needs new breaks. That's all I know of for the moment.

I am hoping to find some good recommendations for decent soft tops for a decent price. I don't need it to be amazing quality because I don't foresee putting it up that often.

I am a complete novice when it comes to cars. I have never really been interested in older cars and have never even changed the oil in my regular car! But it kinda fell in my lap and couldn't pass up such a fun car!
