So my Moonroof was stuck in the opposite tilt direction. couldnt get it to straighten out. would go forward and back and tilt up and down but never sit flush. searched the forum. saw stuff about resetting and calibrating and holding buttons down for like 20 seconds did nothing. greased/lubed all the rails etc.. didnt see anything blocking any pathways. tried tilting While holding the slide switch and that finally straightened it out.

i like tan leather and i like black leather but not a fan of the greyish color inside mine on the dash etc.. feel like that should be black. anybody tried this two-tone? Whether Dye or Respray or Fabric Wrap?

Something like this

This might seem like such a minimal post. But the first thing i ****** up when i grab a new ( used ) car is these "Wonder Wafers" it took me a long time to find an air freshener that came close to a new car smell. The "New Leather" ones always been the best. They are more of a commercial product as opposed to all the annoying consumer fresheners at your local auto part store. Get em on eBay if you are interested.

Sanded her down and noticed once laid on a flat surface she seemed pretty warped. Ran the heat gun on it nice and slow for about 20 minutes and you could just see it forming back into its correct shape. Really worked well to get it laying flat and the sides the same. Who knows what will happen once we get her on the car.

i guess you get what you pay for but i am on a lower tax bracket budget. so the eBay lip took a lot of heat gun and what not. took about an hour to install. needs to dry for a good 12 now. proof it can be done by yourself but with a friend woulda been easier. but i live out in the boonies and didnt feel like waiting another week.

You should screw that thing into the bumper on the sides. I epoxied it too, but it would have fell by now without the screws.

Nice looking cars in the garage!
GS is coming along nicely, so how long do those air fresheners last ? I'm thinking about picking some up.

i would say 3-6 months each wafer. just toss one under the passenger seat. plus they aren't too strong ( i only use the "new leather" ones )
