There were a lot of lost opportunities for photos....
A video of me walking around the house swearing for an hour and half because it was" just my luck to have the moonroof fail 2 weeks after i bought the car".
The expression of desperate hope on my face, when it dawned on me what might have happened.
The wife laughing her a** off in the driveway when I ran a thin plastic edge around the outside border, and pieces of RTV popped up.
The kid has to get a laughingly funny free spin to live another day. If you look at the roof, there is a narrow rubber trim around the glass which looks like cover under which the glass moves. And I wrote the directions pretty much like I said them. Even with visuals, they were not clear.
So I'll eat this one. I'll just wait in the tall grass and nail him when he'* a bit older.
