x2, thats usually enough on the east coast to be allowed to park yourself (the irony of valet being a "luxury" is not lost on me)

We just have NAS 110 ones and those have the holes in the roof for the roll cage and they are old.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

Sucks about roof but looking closely at it it looks like he might luck out as the sealant in his gutters is failing.

So far he can't find a good shop. One wants to straighten it for 8k and I am sure they will have no clue what sealant to use pre paint.

Any ideas so he can be prepared

Get a check for 8k or whatever, then find a roof for $500 and pocket the rest. A roof is two poeple and a half day of work to swap at most.

A lifted prius wouldn't fit in that space either.

I am not sure the guy wants to deal with it. I think it is more of the valet will pay the shop but I have no clue. I think he is going to call stephen to see what he has.

Proper valet company should have insurance for this and should be a slam dunk with no hassle cause thats what its for. It happens no biggie goes with the job.

I know the valet wanted to pay cash instead of insurance but with a bill of 8k I doubt it. I haven't talked to my friend today but I know he was looking to source the roof. I would assume to do it you remove headliner and replace roof.

I would think you would need a roof
new pins for the headliner

I have no clue if you can remove the headliner without destroying it though. When I did my 110 it was done anyway but I would think picking at the pins would be an issue.

Whether it be White Castles or a five-star joint, I drop my wife at the front door to the restaurant, then I drive to find the most secluded parking spot, aka Wally World...
