Thanks, pgf & elhigh.

I was hoping dreaming of ultimately chopping/reclining the roof, along the lines (pardon the pun) of this...

But it's soooo nice, I'm having a hard time with that idea.

Good question!

And no, there's nothing in the pile of receipts about the belt. But after going through the pile of records, I discovered a multi-year gap. I suspect he would have done it, but it's not worth gambling on (even though it is non-interference).

So that's on the to-do list for sure.
