Arrow FS r129 convertible top - very nice 500sl sl500 sl320 320sl sl600

Complete used replacement top with nice headliner and bows and mounting brackets.

Basically 8 mounting bolts to replace your top.

This top is was already replaced on a 70k car and stored with hardtop on, then hit was in front end accident.

Nice, clear and flexible windows, "nylon" of top still has "shine" to it.

Cotton/poly straps should be replaced.

How to remove/install?

Pretty much -unlatch locks, remove hoses/switch wiring, take off main cylinder pins, carefully push main cylinders down, unbolt your old (8) mounting bolts - 13mm, remove top.
(does not include any top cylinders, but have rebuilt top cylinders available) at mercedestopseals - top cylinder seals.

Then replace.

Took me less than a hour to unbolt by myself - you will need at least 2 people to remove AND should use 3 top carefully install!!!

Far easier and than gluing a new top (Estimated at 14 professional hours!), headliner etc.

Don't really want to ship, but possible with Greyhound Bus Package Express to your nearest Greyhound location.

I can replace in Cocoa, FL
