I bought it after seeing a few other people's tops from them and being super happy with what I saw. Highly recommended.
Beautiful work and impressive results!

The question is still unanswered, however, as that seller has at least 2 tops being offered. One is the Sonnenland, the other a Haartz......which one did you buy? One goes for around $430 (Sonnenland) and the other $350 (Haartz). Please let us know which it is that you bought.

Thanks!

Sorry. The original link on ebay of the item I bought doesn't any longer take me to any item currently for sale. But what I bought had the description:

Mercedes W107 280SL 560SL 380SL 450SL Black OEM German Convertible Top 1972-89

It doesn't specify Haartz or Sonnenland or anything but I paid 400€ in 2015 and was the most expensive at the time. I remember I read about all the fabrics, modern replacements etc and I was intentionally targetting for originality of materials so I expect it to be Sonnenland.

Having said that I don't see Sonnenland 107 tops for sale in qualitytopsandinteriors. I only see Haartz currently. Where do you see the Sonnenland can you provide the link please?

Oh I see there is a:

Mercedes W107 280SL 560SL 380SL 450SL Black OEM German Convertible Top 1972-89
HAARTZ Material | 5 Year Warranty | 30 Day Money Back

For sale now, that actually says it's Sonnenland material when click on it and you look in the description. So probably a mistake on their side. This must be the one I bought as price & description are the closest.

Yes, that is correct. Once you open that link it describes the top as a Sonnenland product. Thanks, and enjoy your nice job!
