Top Cylinder repair

Anyone know of anyone near Florence SC that would be willing to replace the o-rings in the main cylinders on my wife's 2000 SLK top? I have some back problems that are bothered by doing a lot. I would like to have it done by someone other than a dealer. Any contact help appreciated.

Since hydraulic tops are a lost art for most mechanics I'd try an AC shop.

Henry Auto is an indy MB shop in Conway that will most likely do it. I was at his shop and he was replacing O rings on a 171. He is located on 90 two miles south if 22.
