Hey people,
After owning a triumph gt6 for a long time I decided it's time for a change, I've gone for a 99 230slk.
What a beautiful car, already in love with it, definately the right decision.
Apart from needing a bit of tlc I've only encountered one small problem, when the roof goes back the parcel shelf misses home by 2mm, one finger to pull the shelf and the roof works perfectly.
Is there an adjustment on these or does it need a new mechanism do you think?
Thanks in advance,
Rob

Sorry I can't help regarding your roof, always hankered after a GT6 I always thought they were a pettier car than the Spitfire, I had a Mk.2 Vitesse with the same engine and overdrive gearbox and loved it but a bit boxy compared to the GT6. I hope you get your sorted out and enjoy your SLK.
