i posted this a while ago on *that other forum*:

there were some delays. we had to wait on the right glue and confirm that we will be using a proper one. also, the metal roof had caulk (which is then painted over by bmw) around it to metal "iinner rails" on each side underneath the roof rails that you see. the oem csl roof obviously does not come with the inner rails. these are important because they each have 7 or so clips that are welded onto them. these are what hold the outer roof rails (ones you see on each side of the roof). it appears most folks glue them in. also, most folks do not use the same caulk. instead, from what i have seen in threads, glue is used in place of the caulk. we decided to do it just as bmw did to ensure some flex is allowed as well as absolutely ensuring moisture will not become a serious problem. regarding the clips, it has been difficult to locate them. so, it looks like each one will be finely cut off the inner rails and then welded in place so that the outer roof rails can be clipped in properly after the roof is glued in place, caulk is set, and paint is sprayed over. note that the markings on the painter's tape made for exactly where the clips were on the now removed inner rails. also, note how cleanly and carefully the roof panel was removed. i was very impressed by what i saw yesterday evening.

the rest of the project is moving along well. the roof should be complete in a few days.

i agree. a lot of time and effort has been put in. there is a long way to go on the car still.
