Got my roll bar installed on Thursday. Don't have any pics, but then again a roll bar install is nothing new.

Sourced a clicking noise in the front right brake caliper, and finally got around to lowering the front to match the rear (12.5 inch hub to fender)

I hope you never wreck Chops, either that or your are really small, because you will have a gauge mounted to your forehead.

I've tapped my head on the latch before, which is why I brought it up. Gave me a nasty gash.

Plus, why mount a boost gauge up there? It's not even a gauge that needs to be watched super closely. I mean maybe an Afr, but even then putting a metal bracket 3-4" closer to your head seems foolish.

Thanks! Sorry I missed your post. The installation was pretty straight forward even without instructions. Remove door panel, remove a couple phillips screws from the window frame, yank out the old window and put in the new one. When I wash the car I don't spray directly at it just to be safe. As far as rain, I never noticed any leaks in the normal position. But I turn the actual vent so that it opens downward if I know it's supposed to rain.

Ordered some new 3pc meshies that are completely the wrong width and offset for my roadster...

Dunno what it is in dollazz but it's just over 1500 spent, which is the most I've ever spent on any of my cars in one go! Can't wait!
