First, many thanks. I've used Benzworld to research before I bought my used 2004 CLK 500 and since. Invaluable knowledge in many instances!

The time has come to replace the top due to the common rear seam issue and I'm looking for an installer; ideally in the St Pete area but will travel to get it done right.

In the repair shop forum I see International Auto Upholstery in Sarasota (says only manual tops) and Foreign American Conv Tops & Upholstery, also in Sarasota. They are older posts; wondering if the advice still stands or if there are new ideas.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Donn Mershon - realdonn (@gmail.com)

Tru Fit in St Petersburg

In answer to my own question, I recommend Tru Fit in St Petersburg - (727) 898-5156. Reputable indie shops speak well of him and I am told by former service writer at MB dealer, this is where they send cars for convertible top work. The owner, Bill, is a down to earth guy and a man of his word. Nothing fancy here except for the work, I wish all auto shops were still like this.
