    We might have to conduct Operation Personal Jesus and kidnap KFJ for our own use down here.

    I wasn't allowed in NC, but I think enough time has gone by that warrants have expired. Hey what the hell, I was young and drove fast then too.

    I picked up my new-used regulator from my parts guy. His prices are so low, I feel bad sometimes.

    The track wheel for the cable on the old one exploded:

    The new one is really in nice condition:

    Of course, the window bushing is non-existent, so I ordered a pair. Was hoping R*Speed had them in stock, but no joy. Amazon was my best bet:

    Wow, that thing is destroyed! I remember putting in new guides and lubrication. Windows performed like new, maybe better. So much faster.

    What did you do with your Miata today?

    Just waiting on the bushings to arrive...sometime today. I removed the guide rail the bushing rides in. I used brake cleaner and some heat to remove the old grease. I used high-temp synthetic silicone grease to re-lubricate.

    ***edit:

    Just took out the driver side window and guide track, same thing. I needed to use my propane torch a little more to get the old grease out. Re-lubed and reinstalled. Still just waiting on parts to arrive. ***

    Interesting. You heat up the track with a flame and it’s easier to clean?

    Lots. That grease is pretty congealed. Lay some heat on it, when it starts to flatten and liquify, wipe it off, chase it with a shot of brake cleaner, wipe again.

    Yes, that yellow congealed grease looks very much like human fat.
