SL (R129) convertible top lid plugs.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, it's a question, not an answer. Has anybody found a practical way to plug those two gaping holes in the back of the soft top storage lid when the top's down?

I know that if I use grommet plugs, I'll be the first to forget to remove them when I put the soft top up.

That's why I was thinking of something along the lines of a pair of flush, soft plastic or rubber "pizza cut" discs that would fold away to allow the soft or hard top attachments to go through, and bounce back to occult the holes when the top was down.

That's the problem with Mercedes ; you've really gotta go out of your way to find something to "fix"...
