I put my Hardtop on tonight for the first time. The top did not come with the car, but I bought it off of Craig's List (it was already the proper color). The gentleman that I bought it from said that he put it in his garage on the first day that he bought his SL600 new and never touched it again. And it shows, it still looks Brand New, even the headliner! When I put it on and pressed the Top Controller Button forward, the Rear Latches pulled down perfectly, but the Front Latches didn't pull down all the way. I could tell that there was a very small gap between the Hardtop & The Windshield Header. I held the button a few more times to see if it would suck down any more, but it didn't. It took the MB Hex Tool to suck it down all the way and I really had to put some muscle behind it. Does this happen often? Or could it be that it had never been used so the Rubber Seals were still like new and had not compressed?
