12 Days to go before the show. I attached al the attachments that I am brining to make sure I could load them for transport. I plan to remove them at the show so I am not hooking up any linkages or belts. It loaded just fine, I'll remove the carrier for transport.

I washed her again, and will wax tomorrow. All the attachments stay on till after the show. I plan on taking the laptop so when the camera(s) fill up I can dump them to the HD. We are planning on movie time in the shop tonight so Hulk and RED has been moved out under the pop-up.

I pretty much live out here in the shop. The most common statement I hear is "what the heck are you going to do with that?"

Still too hot to do much outside, at 11:00 am. I need to bring the other GT's in, but don't want to open the shop up. My multimeter measures in centigrade, so I converted it. ambient temp is 21c - 69.8F, Taped the sensor to the door which is in full sun, 41c - 105.8 F.

Good grief, where is Fall?

It's around 97* right now, running both A/C's still. I opened the door just long enough to get them back inside.

Re arranged some what to make room for old Girl fully loaded.

Talked with the Neighbor some this weekend. They had their "toy's" out (went to a car show) any how, he liked the idea of the LED headlights on Old Girl which would be handy if you needed to work on something at night, but brought up the point that if the points were closed, then the coil would be energized with the key on to run the lights with the engine off. I thought about this some, and came up with a solution that solves two issues. I added a small switch to the hot wire to the coil. This allows 1. running the lights without current applied to the coil or points, and 2. A sorta anti theft device. With the switch off, the engine will crank, but not start. I also made the connectors in a way that the switch can be by-passed easily incase the switch fails.
