Repairing the sunroof gasket on a 2011 Honda Pilot

The gasket completely twisted up last time we opened the sunroof. Water had gotten under the gasket and the rust caused it to pop out of its seal. The sunroof began leaking when it rained.

Before I went and bought a new gasket it looked to me like this was an easy repair. I removed the four screws holding the sunroof in and brought it into the garage. I brushed off all the rust bubbles then made sure that the gasket would slip back into the channel and lay flat. I needed to use a flat headed screwdriver to help push the gasket into the channel.

I pulled the gasket back out and filled the channel with some silicone sealant before pressing the gasket back in neatly all the way along the back. I then reinstalled the sunroof.

Cranston Bones Update

Back in 2006 I had an exciting lunch break when I discovered bones washed out from under route 37. Since then the story occasionally pops back up in the news. Below are two more recent articles about them.

First article is about a woman looking for a famous relative.

This second link explains how they moved some of the graves that were washed out in 2009.

Coyote footprints

It snowed recently and when I went out to check on the chickens I could see many coyote footprints around the perimeter of the chicken run. Among them was a set of huge footprints.

For comparison that’s my footprint on the right

Here’s the other photo I took showing a clear paw print . This one wasn’t as big.
