ATTENTION clio mk 2 sunroof fix :)

after weeks of getting soaked via my water feature/mk2 sunroof, i decided enough was enough. having spent an hour or more trying to unscrew all the hidden 10mm bolts to release the plastic sunroof casing in order to reseal it, i discovered that one of the bolts would not unscrew. after hours of battling, i decided on another route.

quick trip to halfrauds for some black insulating duck tape after failing initially with some loctite flex sealant on the outside. i had tried to seal from the outside-in with the loctite but that looked a complete mess. so i decided to tidy it up. took about 20-30 mins to do patiently so as to try and keep straight lines etc, but here's how it looks now....

I know its not perfect but it was the best i could do given my cirumstances and its completely waterproof. the tape has been on over a week now and no shrinkange or peeling with cold or heat.(fingers crossed)

much better than paying 100-250 quid to get it resealed by someone else
