i recently had some time off to burn at the end of the year, which left me wanting to work on my spider. we had been having some really mild weather here in Denver for most of the fall & into December & i thought i'd try & knock a few minor things off my list.
i bargained with myself saying that if i worked on the car at the beginning of my vacation (instead of ski, cycle, etc...) then i could spend the rest of my time off driving it!
i was finally able, late in the third day of working on her when i finally got everything sorted out, to take her around the block for a quick test spin.
and the next day was greeted with the 2.5' of snow that Denver received right before Christmas, followed by the other 1.5' of snow that we got just a week later, right before New Years.
So alas...with a sigh, i finally put her under her blanket (car cover) shortly afterward to await spring thaw...
"How was your vacation?"
"Great -- I spent it shoveling snow..."
But did give her new floormats, master clutch cylinder, slave cylinder, hood cable & throttle cable.
