Hi all. I really need to do something about the loose joints in the roof frame on this thing. Between that and the loose window regulators it sounds like an old panel truck when I go over bumps, especially a succession of small ones, YIKES!!!
Does anybody have a clue where to start with the frame? Any success stories out there?
I'm looking forward to one or two :)

Other areas could be an adjustment on the door strikers, and some new cat whiskers on the windows.

don't forget the inner felt/horsehair lining that go in the channels down in the door. low friction liner and the fron wof the door window "C" channels, cat whiskers that go on the outside and inside of the windows in the door and quarter panel areas.

It does need all of those things but the roof frame is the worst thing right now.
