[DML] Re: Rear Louvers hitting stainless T-Panel

I have an answer to this one just due to my dumb luck. The previous 
owner had replaced the struts and in the process moved the louvers to 
where they were hitting the t-panel. Now I have a nice little crease in 
it :( however I had to remove the louvers when the car needed a tow, so 
I wanted to replace them where they were not hitting the t-panel plus 
had enough room to catch the latch. Step one is to completely loosen 
the latch on the engine cover and move it as far back as you can. Then, 
with the help of another person (or two, the more the better) loosen 
the bolts on the clamps holding the louvers. Push the louvers as far 
forward as you can, but also twist them so the forward bracket is as 
high as it can be in the column, and the back is as low as it can be. 
Thhis helped raise the louvers near the t-panel so that (1) they did 
not hit any more and (2) when looking from the rear of the car, you 
could not see the roof below the t-panel. Hope this helps.
