Hi
I have just had my soft top replaced with a new black top instead of the green top that originally was on the car which my wife and I did not like.

Coming back from Poole I noticed it was much quieter, not so much wind noise which you come to expect from a convertible.

See pictures of before and after, comments appreciated.

I had this work carried out by Kevin Baggs of Poole, he did an excellent job - and was completed in a day - I would highly recommend.

I don't mind the green top, but the black contrasts the body really well and looks very good :)

Hi not sure of the make as kevin supplied and fitted the
soft top, but it is black mohair, if you contact kevin
baggs I am sure he will let you know.
Thanks.

I don't suppose you kept the green top did you? I'm quite keen to replace the black top on my SL with a green one!

thanks
