I repaired my sunroof .... "messing with Mike" video showed me how to "jerry rig" the plastic sliding parts of the track so it would work again... my dad would be very proud!!...(he wanted me to learn to change spark plugs etc... but I told him grease doesn't look good under my fingernails )

I'm guessing they use plastic parts in the roof of a car so the mechanics have job security??

Installed a back up camera (Auto vox T-1400 upgrade) and a blind spot detector (Rydeen BSS-2) on the ole Cruiser.

Bunch of stuff ordered for a complete overhaul of the PT sound system.
In the Meantime?

Last week, my Gas pedal fell off... Yes the bolts that hold it there sheared. I had to get to work the next day. Just started a new job so I had my sister in her Brand spanking New Toyota Hybird drive me to lowes to pick up some 5 min Epoxy. I just mixed the whole thing and put it on there. Was back up and running in less then an hour. I don't plan on messing with it ever again.




I also Ordered some Struts for the rear tailgate of the PT. More on that latter.

Good job, and happy that something happened as this forum somehow seems to have died lately. I mean did all the PT:s end up on the junkyard? Except for mine of course.

Nice, it looks like a standard DIN stereo, how did you solve the extra hole that must have arisen? Any picture of it fully assembled?
