If you feel adventurous you can remove the four nuts on the mechanism, pull the cable and add a few of those little washers you use with pop rivets. I have to admit I do like the cable tie...

Right. It always bears checking. That said I have bought from these folks and I'd be concerned about packaging from the U.K. They ship through France and my three packages have become pretty beat up...

Just as a side note: if you order from the SL Shop you don't pay VAT. You also don't need to call them or ask. Once you put in your mailing address and country it is omitted automatically.

That would be my thought roncallo. Measurements are taken on bolt-center to eliminate the need to consider the size of the bore for the bolt or stud. Otherwise it would be apples to oranges. That...

Same here. Bought a used frame and soft top from a 70s 450sl and bolted it to my '85 380 and it was great. 4 bolts and a couple misc. attachments and that's it. Good luck.
