Left hand looks worse than it is. I did knick a couple fingers modifying the plug wire retariners a couple nights ago. Right hand is worse than it looks. I was beat last night, but kept at it.

The side-gapped plugs are a test. I want to see how they go. That'* a tricky little operation all by itself.

When I get some coffee in me and clear my head, I'll post a list of what'* left to do.
