380SL soft top replacement
Hi all, new user here. I recently picked up a pristine 85 380SL that had been sitting covered in a garage for 15 years. I've been a mechanic for a long time and after performing the basics, the car runs and drives great. Even fixed the High Idle Hell thanks to advice from the forum.
Now it's time to replace the soft top and I've looked through at least 20 threads on installing the top and every one seems to have a different method.
Could someone please point me to a thread for the correct (or at least best) method? I've installed soft tops before on a 67 Austin Healey and a 71 Triumph Stag (yes, it runs and drives believe it or not) so have had some experience but the number of different methods is just baffling.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
