Curse my procrastinating Brain! The weather has finally come to the great northwest, and the condition of the Datsun is??? She's down. :( When will I ever learn! :roll:
Car looks freaking great Pebbles. Enjoy!

When In the car sometimes, yes. With people yelling out the window, waving, and taking pictures....you think they saw a bigfoot!

Ha! Andy was down too. The morning before the Camano drive!!
Greased the front end, checked the oil and blaaaahhh, the battery was gushing all over!
White crusty 1/2" thick everywhere. Had to take the battery out, and mix up some soda water and watch it foam. Scraped the big chunks. Rinsed it with some vinegar. While it was drying, I went to get a new battery. Spray painted it red, (because the engine bay is still red) :oops: .
Put it all back together with a new battery mat and some post lube (corrosion inhibitor).
Seems all goody now :D
Thanks Greg :smt006

Driving in rush hour traffic will be missed.

It was warm and sunny in the Bay Area today.

I took the Roadster to work and came home via the scenic route.

It was 15 degrees when I left for work this morning, and plenty of salt on the roads. Roadster isn't going to work let alone even leaving the garage for a few months.
