Here is what TopsOnline customers are saying...

It's been a few months, but just a quick note to let you know the new upholstery in my 560SL is fantastic and looks great after its first conditioning with Lexol ... Also here are a few pics of the new top and boot cover on my 68 Mustang...I'm really pleased with both.
