Hmmm, there are places I simply don't drive with the top down, but then again I try to avoid those areas regardless if I'm driving the F150 or the SLK.
The closest "hazard" was before smarttop - wife was in a hurry, got pissed at me wanting to put the top up when we parked. When we got back, a seagull had left at least half his body weight in crap right across the top. Wife has never complained about taking time to put the top up since!
I drove a CJ7 ages ago, and got rained on, sun burned, cigarette burned (on a newly recovered rear bench), mud covered, you name it - bet it was a bit more designed to take it. I had a D90 a few years later, and it just wasn't the same - felt obligated to take good care of it...
