R129 SL SOFT TOP REPLACEMENT
Your R129 SL soft top is one of the reasons you own the vehicle. It gives you access to Vitamin D at the touch of a button, injecting cross-country touring and weekend drives with unrivalled enjoyment and style. But there will come a time when your roof needs replacing…
These include the audio system. The R129’s period audio system naturally doesn’t compete with modern options and to bring your R129 experience in line with the modern world, we’ve found the perfect alternative audio systems to immerse you in your daily commute or weekend drive.
WHY CONSIDER A REPLACEMENT SOFT TOP?
A replacement soft top is essential to the preservation and enjoyment of your R129 SL. A faded soft top will depict a tired and worn modern classic SL, suggesting a lack of care and potentially reducing its value. Furthermore, a deteriorating hood will allow water ingress, causing a multitude of issues ranging from damp and mouldy carpets, and inoperative electrical modules. The result? An almost almost unusable vehicle.
OUR SOFT TOPS
As the leading R129 Parts Supplier, we offer a range of replacement hoods in a multitude of colours. These hoods are original Sonnenland® are highly UV and abrasion resistant and are utilised for their world-renowned quality, as endorsed by the largest vehicle manufacturers on the planet. Just like the original hood on your R129, we use Sonnenland® with a beige backing.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR YOU AND YOUR SL?
By opting for a replacement, improved, and rigorously tested new hood, you’ll be safeguarding your interior, your enjoyment and your vehicle’s value should you decide to sell it further down the road. After all, an SL without a fully operational hood is simply a Mercedes-Benz with a soft top.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Generally, we allow one working day to complete the replacement soft top.
Included in this service is a replacement hood, the labour time to fit the new hood and any additional soft top fixings required to complete the job.
