Craig, sorry we missed you..
To all Great way to end the meet season. Thank You to all that made the event another great time !!
Cindy gave a great overview of the meet and we all had a great time, despite some of our "non fans"
Finally got FIREM undressed and put away all the show stuff.
The Pro-Am now offically looks like it belongs in the 300M Club. Thanks to Cindy and Dave the "ugliest wheels award" will be passed on to one of my students. The Pro-Am is now sitting on real shiny "twin sixes" like it should.
My OC experiance started Wed. Keith and Lindsey traveled to "The Days Inn, Somerset" (or at least had a road adventure) After dinner Keith and I clayed, poilshed, and coated his Benz (along with some TLC) with his new product. Results were great for a 4 hour "quickie" and final detailing was done at the show.
Thursday morning as we prepared to depart FIREM had an electrical "glitch". At start up all dash lighting went out, ATC, RB1 etc all went blank. Odd??? Key off and restart, all back to normal ( I hoped). Pulled out of the driveway and heard a KLUNK....hmm, guess it's something in the trunk (I hope )
As we drove to OC it started to rain....so wipers on and guess what....Dash, ATC,RB1 all blank again (Speedo, tach, music still ok) Wipers off, all normal, wipers on blanks??? Oh yeah and that KLUNK ?
Friday AM "O Dark Thirty" uncover the car and planned to go for coffee...right...click click battery dead...walk for coffee.
Got some cleanin in and Alan had a battery charger, good to go for the parade.
Jumped to get home from the show. Search for tools to remove batery, no 10mm, Keith bailed me out. Thank You.
So now I'm sitting in Keith's Benz, with the old battery on my lap, Hank calls to see if I need a hand. Thanks man, we look out for each other. Mission accomplished, new battery in and all electrical issues go away
But despite unloading the trunk and repacking so nothing moves KLUNK. Undercar inspection nothing looks unusual.
Finally Sunday morning after a weekend of KLUNK I spot the right rear sway bar link snapped off at the mount (not strut tab
Oh yeah and on the way home in the rain the right side wiper falls off the arm ! Guess I didnt snap it all the way on when cleanin..
Spent this past weekend properly securing the battery, swapping the broken link,packing up show goodies, dressing up the Pro-Am...
with Memories of Ocean City keeping me happy....
