Windows, Maintenance And Some Bling

We changed the oil in both the Freestyle and KARR today and also took care of a few items that have been on the to do list. I cleaned KITT's old door glass so we can remove the hardware as it will be needed on the new glass we have. I took these pictures more for future reference than anything.

I was going to clean all the old grease and dirt off the window track, but decided that it will be much easier to clean once it is off the glass.

I used our foaming window cleaner and let it eat away at the grime on the glass.

There are four rivets that will have to be drilled out and three plastic inserts. I will end up replacing the rivets with small bolts and nuts.

One of the plastic washer style plugs in the passenger side door glass is broken and one was cracked in the driver side. I am not sure what these are called, and cannot find them in the service manual. I am going to see if I can source some replacements.

KARR's passenger seat was missing the reclining lever when I bought it.
