1964 220SE Convertible
My Dad just finally got his 64 220 SE back from the mechanics (it had been there four months) and he wanted to start getting used to driving it (hasn't driven a standard in over 50 years). Unfortunately, neither he nor I could get the convertible top to go down. We unlatch from the windshield and fold as far as we can get but there's no way it's low enough to snap the convertible cover over it. And instructions don't exist in any books that he owns.
Does anyone know the tricks behind these tops. I'm sure we're missing something because we like to think we're pretty clever when it comes to solving things, but this one is like a Rubik's cube.
