NEW Benz owner 1991 300SL

Greetings to all. I just bought a $3,000 "in the country find" 1991 Mercedes Benz 300SL Black with 158,000 miles I got the car for steal price so I am prepared to have the price "steal" some of the FUN of ownership in potential convertible top repairs. It is kind of a give and take battle. It runs very well on par with a $12,000-$15,000 example of the car. I am currently having issues with the hardtop not wanting to release and the convertible top (red button) just flashes and flashes. I need help! So it appears I have joined the right place. Would be nice to get it to release one day so I can enjoy the glorious weather down here in Atlanta, Georgia. If any Georgia owners have a club or anything down here please feel free email me or to point me in the direction of the best Mercedes mechanics. I would love to have bought a 2003 or up "spaceship" model but unfortunately funds would not permit the delight of my soul.

Happy motoring to all fellow enthusiasts! Long live the R129 LOL.
