I going to pick up mine today. Later this month is great. Do you think we can get 5 installed in one day? Or should we do one, but have everyone else take notes?

28th is okay, need to be done by 5pm.

You think we could talk Bill into coming north for a bit?

Bill?

Just fly all the cars down to me in FL and I'll be happy to install them for you.

Its only 4-5 Torx and a few clips. but 2 of the clips realy seem to give most a hard time. you also need a dowl to prop the carpet back while you work.

I'm scheduled for a 7-3 that day but I may be able to swap into the mid shift and be up that way around lunch time. I agree with Bill on the carpet, it's very stiff but I just had someone sit in the passenger seat and hold it back for me, that worked pretty well. I'm still trying to find the Smart top module for my Denali but no luck yet...

I think step 1 is firing up the cutting torch!!

That'd be great if you could make it, for the install help and because we haven't seen you in a while!

If you want to drive all the way to Marietta, I'll pay for the beer, and you can use our garage...

Yeah, as to place to meet, we need a big garage or a nice level driveway. Mine is 1/2 full with a GTO that's not moving at the moment as it waits to be sent out for a suspention rebuild. And the slant of our driveway would never see the light of day anywhere it regularly snows, if you know what I mean.

I have a two-car, that I can empty (it has the Saab and the BMW in it, but otherwise it's clear). I also have a third garage behind the house with the MB in it. Adjacent to both are nice flat, sunny spots.

Or we can travel...

Sounds like you just volunteered! Joe and I will meet up somewhere and drive over. Maybe do lunch and then destroy some smart tops?
