Cool I'm still laughing!!!!

Picked up a sweet Calypso green 5.0 ragtop last week with a few minor issues. One of which was a drivers side window that didn't work. Probably the power window motor, I surmised. Simple fix.

Pulled the door panel today to investigate. Yeah......I'm still laughing!

Half the window track is missing, but this is genius! Great way to keep the window in the up position. Plastic mop head with the handle cut just the right length. Even has an adjustable screw that pushes the window up tight! I thought this was worthy of a post!

Y'know what- I like it! That's a clever temp fix! I've seen people use blocks of wood, even bricks, but the adjustable head here is really nice. Bravo!

Previous owner should have disclosed what he did though, instead of letting you find out for yourself.
