Default Mercedes Benz R129 500 SL Accessory

Hey Guys,

I have a Mercedes Benz R129 500 SL and am looking for a hardtop storage option. One that i have often come across is a ceiling hoist. I do not know where i can get one of these in India. I would not mind a used one too. Please advice.

Thanks in advance

Regards

I used to own a SL600 in R129 spec a few years ago. We used to prefer the hardtop on the car all the time owing to the ridiculous weather we have in London. Apart from that, the area where the hardtop joins the body is prone to leaks if not taken care of.

I would suggest you keep the Hard top on your car. I presume it is a full Hard top and not the option panoramic roof.

Hey S@S. somewhat unrelated but are you looking to sell your SL? Been looking for an r129 SL for quite some time now! I'm based in Bombay as well.
