I got the horns mounted and tested. Me so horny now. I then pulled the lock cyl out of the hatch because the key part was frozen. Sprayed the insides good and proper with wd40 and tapped the sides with a rubber hammer to unstick the tumblers. Between that and working the key it now works like new again. Put it back in and checked it again. Total nirvana.

I'll work on the tunes at some point but right now it's not critical.

Going to get this legal very soon. Insurance this week and plates next week after payday. I want to debut it at a gathering in Spring Lake the 19th. Time to quit nit picking it and thinking of what else I can do and just drive it like I wanted to 5 years ago.

Trial by fire me thinks, but I have driven it enough but nothing long. Just 10 miles or so.

Hopefully I won't need the road service...............

Forgot what it was like gassing up something with a big tank. Put 18 gallons in. So far, nothing leaks. My wallet still hurts.

Looks like the fill tube weeps a bit. See pavement under it in a couple locations under it. See what I get for filling it up?
