    Quick glance I got at the rear of the roof box - it doesn't look like it has lifted much at all.

    Glad to hear. Most tubers are in it for just clicks & cash.

    I'm following this with great interest myself, I need to replace the roof / door seals on mine, and it's fascinating to see what's involved in the process. I'm sure much has been omitted for the sake of producing an interesting video, but it's at least a good overview of the major points involved, such as protect the torsion bar from scratching with a rubber hose, and take special care not to dent the top of the door panels while drilling out/replacing the rivets.

    The part where they fix the crease in the rear quarter is interesting. I would almost call it a gouge.
