NOTHING! Battery is DEAD! I can't get ahead of this beast. Charging the battery and plan on changing out the AOS over the weekend. Perhaps the demons will be leave...

BTW, my Box is Midnight Blue Metallic. Its one of those colors that changes depending on the light, shadows, camera, etc. It does look black at times. Also, purple.
What Indy do you use. Just got back from mine. All sport in Stowe. They are very good and been around for over 50 years. There is another good one in Framingham. Eurotech I think.

In the middle of replacing Coolant Tank. Oh what fun. Got the old out, have the new tank reassembled with dip stick hole drilled. Now the fun begins reinstalling and not breaking the oil fill tubes.

Cool Bed Time

I put the old boy to bed for the winter. Changed the oil first and put the humidity bags in the cockpit. Its got 93,400 miles on the counter original IMS, RMS and water pump. Next thing to do will be to inflate the tires to around 45psi, put the charger on and take the wipers off .

Repleced both of them with a generic resistor I bought on ebay.



They were both dead. Been driving the car around for about a week. It runs cooler now by 15-20 degrees.

Drove my 98 Boxster to Kaiser and dropped off my final Semen sample. After two vasectomy I am free and clear. Yep...I said two vasectomy. Apparently I had millions of super sperm. Two years of samples and today's sample came back negative!

Looked at it longingly in anticipation for when I'm out of my post-surgery shoulder sling....2 weeks down, 4 to go.

I hope the healing and PT go well. I have been dealing with a separated shoulder for @ 4 years, occasionally thinking about having surgery.

I took the Long Way Home from Church

Glendora Mountain Road to Mt. Baldy Village, +/- 26 miles of mountain road at 4,000 ft. This road was part of the last stage of the 2015 AMGEN Tour of California bike race. Mt San Antonio tops out at 10,068 feet. The bike race finishes at 6,400. The last bit is 15%. Those guys are gnarly. Nice drive with great views.
