Got Hector prepped for a new windshield tomorrow. Will be nice having the glare strip at the top and getting rid of the haze on the inside that nothing will remove.
Also having to baby it until mechanic and I can get timing replaced.

Hauled some firewood. Enjoyed the weather. Reminded myself to do something about that tiny vacuum leak somewhere. Someday.

Thought Hector had a bad window regulator, but it turns out the plastic brackets decided to come unglued from the bottom of the window.
Any advice on what to use to glue them back to make sure they stay put?

Liquid nails or mirror adhesive should do the trick.

And... make sure all surfaces are clean and NOT COLD. (it's winter, afterall) Heat expands, cold contracts... standard physics. Let the glue setup in your house, if at all possible.
