On my agenda for today is to put my summer wheels and tires back on. I put my winters on for my roadtrip home for christmas (just north of philly). The weather was so warm though, I didn't even need them.

Then maybe I'll wash it.

My plan for today is to mark where the hinge mounts for the rear seat go. They will be welded in this week.

Yeah, that is kind of cool. But doesn't it cause wind noise on the freeway? Are they a weather seal? That car with the rid lip on the rim is sweet. Is that yours?

The factory seal for the glass is very good, I have not noticed extra wind noise on the freeway. If you wanted to be extra safe you could put some sealeant I guess behind the glass that would not be visable.

That car with the red wheels belongs to one of the UK members, very nice.....

I drained the coolant. Treated her to a new Thermostat, coolant temperature sensor and I filled everything back up. She seemed happy when I pulled her out of the garage (idle's back in spec now, yay!). Tomorrow, I clean the shop down at school and get everything ready for tacking up our frame for next year's baja car (well, not just me, the whole team, but you know how it is).

I've been to Tom's house, and I'm pretty sure it's not in Alabama, but just outside of Atlanta. :P
