Getting ready to load him up on the trailer for a 5:30 am towing trip tomorrow. A/C didn't get complete, but there is a new compressor in there. We're going to use our contacts to find a place to wrap up the A/C up there. Just get a new dryer and condenser, and figure it out. Paint is spectacular, top brand new with glass, starting issue has been solved. Vader's heater core was moved over and coolant leak is solved. GWiz will be stunned. She still thinks I rattle canned him. What a long assed summer. Looking forward to not working on a car for quite some time.

Expensive little dude.

She still thinks I rattle canned him, so the reveal should be fun. She'll know quickly that my story is full of shit.

That's what I'm looking forward to. Her reaction should be killer!

Made it to Georgia Tech unscathed! Didn't get the reaction from GWiz I was hoping for. I think she just figured I'm that good with a rattle can.

Dumb ass me forgot the keys to the trailer lock. Had to buy bolt cutters and a new trailer lock. Parking that stupid trailer on campus is a major PITA, even though I have a parking permit.

You've set her expectations too high. I'm not sure that's a bad thing!

Was the trailer a CH751 like 95% of the other trailers in the world? :P

Trailer is a heavy ass black steel trailer with wood planks. It's the club's trailer, so it's free for my use, so is the truck.

She DID notice the new top after she got back into Toothless. She was looking for the two cuts in the plastic window.....no cuts now. She was very excited about the top.

I meant the key to the lock. :P The racks we have from IBM at work use the same damn key (CH751) and it's immensely common on trailer locks.

I don't think so, but no worries. New lock $15, bolt cutters $35. How EASY it was to cut the lock....

Yep, only meant to scare off the amateurs

One of the toughest locks I've ever had to cut off, took two of us and 4' bolt cutters
