@db4690, that headliner must have been the heavy duty option…
Some years ago at a Subaru dealer where I worked a new Subaru was set for delivery to the customer. I did the PDI on it and turned it over to the washroom guy for a last minute cleaning.
Somewhere between the vacuum cleaner and handing the keys to the new owner it was decided to let the washroom guy install a decided at the last minute luggage rack on top of the car.
Not long after that the service manager came to me wanting to know if I had anything to do with the luggage rack install. Nope, you handed that to the washroom guy; remember? This is news to me.
Apparently the guy misplaced the attachment screws that came with the rack and helped himself to another set out of the hardware bin.
Unfortunately, instead of 3/4" screws he chose 3" and never noticed the screw threads sticking a long ways through the headliner.
They handed the keys to the new Subaru owner, wished him well, and within 2 minutes he was back inside at the counter in a justifiable rage when he DID notice those screws which a blind man could have seen.
What was odd was that the washroom kid was actually a very hardworking guy and was pretty mechanically inclined. How he botched this I do not know as it’s out of character.
Friday and thinking of date night with the girlfriend I guess…
