Post New member from VA - R129 owner

Greetings... Bill from VA here. I'm a proud owner of a 1999 SL500. I bought the car about 3 years ago for a song, and have loved every second of driving it. I've always done my own mechanical work, and until recently, nothing other than routine maintenance has been needed.
My first repair will be to replace the hydraulic cylinders for the convertible top release mechanisms (one is leaking oil). I have already found a wealth of information on this topic. The threads on this site can't be beat. Keep up the good work Benzworld!

BTW, I just lost the tow hook cover on the front bumper. Anyone know where I can find one?
