More later as I discuss it with the agent.
That sounds steep, what is your driving record like. I pay State Farm $127/month for full coverage on the bus and liability on the MIata and the Dakota. I just switched it to full coverage on the Miata and liability on the bus and Dakota with no rate change. Didn't realize I had full coverage on the bus while it sits in the driveway.
State Farm surprised me when I found out I had full coverage. I asked about changing it to the Miata. They said I had one month to go on the policy. If I added the Miata they would have to charge the difference for the past year, but if I changed the bus to liability now, they would reimburse the the difference from the year. So I dropped the full on the bus and got a rebate, and waited till the end of the month to add the full to the Miata. State Farm has been the best insurance company I've dealt with in 50 years of driving.

It's New Jersey, do I have to say more? I don't have tickets, I don't have accidents, I'm old and I have old vehicles -- it's just New Jersey.

Here's a picture of the last patch for the rear cap. I laid the gutter section in place so you can see what will happen there. Once my friend gets it welded in place I'll do the final screw in, cinch the rear cap down and call it done - except for some odds and ends I have to take care of.

Anyone know why some pictures uploaded rotate? This picture was taken vertically in the camera but, for some reason, it uploaded into the forum rotated counter clockwise.

Musigenisis can give you details on how to do it ... but if you convert the .jpg images into .png images you can position the images any way you want and they stay that way.
