I know if we need rain here, I wash my car. Usually the next day it rains. Funny thing is, I look at the weather and they usually say no rain is in the forecast, so I figure I am safe. Never fails.

I think I will leave the intercooler peak threw. Nice little sign to not bother me. Kind of like the new hood I'm building.

I know what you mean about the rain. It'* raining right now, go figure.

Have I mentioned lately how much I hate construction? I missed a spot when I washed the car.


I also looked under the hood today, was not happy. I have a car show on July 5th. I have a lot of cleaning to do.



The whole underside of the car is covered with what looks like concrete. That'* not what it is, it'* just mud from fine dust. But it'* everywhere, in the wheel wells, the engine bay, everywhere. And it wont wash off. I had to use a brush to remove it.
