    • Nice ride! All that hard work has finally paid off.
      I'm supposing all the girls want a ride now.

          • Meanwhile back at the Speedracer shop I am sitting in ac at the Toyota dealership getting the Prius worked on. I am not allowed to work on the Prius.

              You'd just electrocute yourself, so that is probably a good thing.

                • If you like, I can take another one after the sun goes down in case your old eyes can't see them on. Turn signals also work, as do the side markers. I am having some trouble with the brake light switch though, and the horns. Those should be fixed or at least narrowed down this weekend. Then we go to 99.5%. I still can't get a good finish coat of paint on my rear valance, so I'm going to either put it on as-is (for the license plate), or suck it up and take it to Maaco.

                      • On a more serious note, the dealership mechanic that did the brake job on the Prius apparently did not torque down the bolts to the rear calipers resulting in the destruction of two calipers and damage to one of the wheels. I am upset.

                          There is a strong possibility I would turbo the Prius mod the suspension and paint it red

                            Don't get too excited. That's pretty easy to fix, at least on an old Ford. Does the Porsche have brake lights? Asking for a friend....

                            Sorry to hear about the Prius. At least no one was electrocuted.

                                  • The brake light switch will be here Thursday. I know the bulbs and fuse are good. Dash lights are also not working, nor are the hazard lights. I don't know what's going on with the horn. It's such a simple circuit, but it goes through the turn signal/hazard switch which is questionable, so I'm hoping a new one of those will kill two birds with one switch. It also arrives Thursday. I think the brake lights and horn are the only things keeping me from passing a safety inspection.

                                    • Why don't you go the geezer route and hot wire the left turn signal to leave it run all the time. You're getting to about the right age too!

                                      OK OK that comment about the age is unfair.

                                        • I have been on several long road trips with Rocketman and I have never seen him pull any geezer moves.
