Finally got a chance to open up the drivers side door and see why the window rattles so much. Turns out it was just a loose torx bolt that holds the window to the regulator. No need for a new regulator.

Yesterday I did a compression test and replaced the spark plugs.

156.5, 162.5, 165, 164, 160, 151

Not great but within spec.

Really wanted to get it up on jack stands and rip out the CDV, but one of my jack points has fallen off.
Actually all of them are loose and none of them have that pin in the center.

Oh yeah...I drove it with the top down...I love a convertible in the spring...

Wrapped the trim in 3M vinyl. Looks better IMO.





It was a super big pain wrapping the middle rear piece...lots of compound curves, but I made it happen.
