Replaced part sw2252. I'm sure many of you know what that is.

I ordered new top which arrived yesterday. I swapped out door skin uppers and hopefully do top this weekend, weather permitting.

Repaired the remaining bracket holes. Sanded the jb weld down. If everything goes right, hopefully paint it next Friday.

Painted the headlight bezels today. Love the new look!

The PO had chrome grill inserts in it when I picked it up. Thinking about sanding those down now and painting those. Something to try this weekend

Today we pulled the OPDA to see if the P0016 was caused by a bad gear or a bad sensor. thankfully it all looked good. we will order a sensor in the morning.

Yep, the sun definitely limbers them up. Can you post a pic of what it looks like from the inside?

The windows are tinted, it is hard to see on the pics from the inside. It was just that bright South Carolina sun! Got the back glass zipped up today, let it sit outside with the windows up and let it get nice and tosty. That top is TIGHT. I have heard others say that before and took it with a grain of salt, but holy hell, that top is super tight. Haven't got to take it out on the road much yet, but there is nothing that could possibly make any noise from that top. I am digging the sun rider feature too, it takes 2 minutes and it is folded back. I don't think I could be happier!
