hello - new member just climbed onboard.my latest mb is a 1997 SL 320 which i picked up at the end of last summer. just covered 5,000 miles (relatively pain free) but now it's time to start some semi-serious maintenance on the old girl.issues are:-

a small oil 'drip' on the drivers side windscreen post. only a little but wonder if it is trying to tell me something?

timing belt to change

cylinder head gasket to change

the canvas top!!!!!!!! - i confess to having taken a high-pressure hose to the top to clean away bird deposits. i can be foolish,sometimes, plain DUMB. a high-pressure hose makes a mess of a canvas cover...........i need a new one and would ask for other members experiences of which 'quailty' to buy and whether it is a self fit job or not

changing the audio unit

replacing the emergency brake handle.......it came away in my hand at lunchtime today

look forward to chatting
