I hope you're hearing it-- you did a great job describing & illustrating that process. I'm saving it for later. Thanks a lot for sharing what you've learned.

No problem. After much trial and error. This is what the corners should look like. Mind you I have not glued it down yet as I need to clean everything up and remove all the dust thats accumulated in seal gutter. So the straight sections are pretty simple to wedge into place. I found that pushing the rubber upwards towards the glass on each corner is what worked best for me and actually kept the seal in place with out glue. if you stretch it, it will just lift up.

Not exciting but this past week involved getting the car registration back into my name and not jointly with my brother. With AIRCARE gone there is no need to have it out of the lower mainland. Lots of small hoops to jump through as it also involved changing my valuation policy too. As my brother is 300 miles away it took a bit of mail exchange to accomplish that. He also had to sign the tax form as the car is deemed a "gift", so there is no tax issues. We discussed the collector plate but with the need for an inspection I told him that is not an option. I will save some money too as I had redundant coverage with ICBC and now only need the liability.

I have asked my insurer to keep and eye out for a 510 plate for me as I will insure car at end of April...should the sun ever come back.

Next week will be about removing intercooler and checking all my methanol and water spray systems.

I counted the other day I've not worked on mine in 217 days, that's when I test fitted the engine. 142 days since I last saw my Coupe! I need to make some more effort.
