Thanks Christopher...and maybe we can talk Dredman into a similarly timed return visit to Houston. He parked his previous rig here at my studios for a few days last time through. Would love to see you both.

Ya...having a "day job" certainly helps. All the money that a bus can suck up has to come from somewhere.

You got that right. The only thing more expensive than a wife...is an ex-wife...or two.

Old joke...

"Why are divorces so expensive? Because they are worth it!"

Piddlings --- while on hold for a couple of much needed and currently unavailable helpers (cabinet maker and X Car builder/hydraulics guru)...I managed to kill some time on more little stuff.


Ordered some textured styrene that I cut up to line my new battery box. Given that it is 14ga. steel, I figured some insulation (of the electrical kind) might make for less drama down the road. The AGM batt will lay on its' side so the posts would otherwise make lots of sparky noises and let all the smoke out.

Then there is this doodad. Surely you all have one of these...right?

(Hint...it works with something else posted fairly recently).

And finally...I just ran across the ULTIMATE SHORTY! You can fit about five of these into a normal parking space.


And before you ask...yes...it is real.




ONWARD!

I think it's just some quarter inch plate you had folded to make a guard for the tranny oil lines, then drilled and welded it up.
