Dear classic car-lovers,

Happy #teamtakeover everyone! Every other week one of our team-members takes you into her / his daily projects or provides you with various tips and recommendation for classic vehicles. In today's video you may join Federico José Gaxiola Balsa, Motorcar Mechanic at our classic car-workshop, for an assembly of the softtop of a Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda. Enjoy!

Our recommendation

  1. First, the compartment cover is unlocked with the lever in the rear of the vehicle and then we open the compartment cover
  2. The plastic sheet, which is on the seals to protect them from damage, can be put away
  3. The softtop is pulled out of the compartment cover at the lowest part
  4. In the next step, the compartment cover is careully closed
  5. The front part of the softtop is placed on the frame of the windshield, the fastening bolts are inserted and the softtop is closed at the front
  6. Then the rear part of the softtop is fold down and locked in position on the compartment cover
