Did you find the reason the left side passenger window wouldn't roll up (at Carlisle)?

Yes, Ed. The motor crapped out. I probably wont fix it until next Carlisle... I just dissembled the motor guts to get the window up then put it together again.
Thanks for asking.

Oooh, I love birthday parties!!! Are we having a party? I'll bring the booze!

I love the fact you're marking the "birthday" of your car. I thought I was the only one who does that lol! Mine was born 2/1/1989 by the way.
