Softtop operation & dual exhaust - R129
Hi, I am a 71 year old retiree that enjoys searching the nation for low mileage one owner older vehichles with low mileage. Most recent purchase is a 96 SL500 with 27,000 one owner miles. The owner Hyd Clyinders for auto top are shot but the top can be operated manually (I hope). Hardtop is still on the car but will be taking it off.
I drove the car from Florida to Arizona via Kentucky and he car is exceptional but I am old and love the dual exhaust tips coming from the rear of each side of the car. The local muffler shop says it can't be done due to gas tank location. Anyone experienced converting the exhaust?
I would appreciate any input regarding the softtop cylinders or any info on the dual exhaust.
