The dead weight of time
Button head screws to replace the socket head cap screws so the outer fasteners don't deform the filter media. Easy win.
Once the other pieces were installed - the window provided a very similar result to the driver's side window. I sprayed the felt with silicone lubricant and, while it helped, it didn't solve the problem. Still requires both hands and a solid grip to pull the window up - so no chance the window regulator is going to survive that situation.
Why is it so fucking hard to get decent parts?
I decided to hang on to my money and wait for the next one to come up. I don't need it but I did want it.
I've sold a decent chunk of my stashed parts with more parts on the way out the door...might be a slippery slope but that's where this is going.
Not sure I'll be doing a whole lot with the car over the next few days/weeks. I'm kind of done installing shit quality parts only to pull it all apart again and throw it away.
