DaX asks...

Any word on the inspection?
no word. i didn't drop the car off until lunch time, and they hadn't looked at it yet when i called around 4:30.

so, tomorrow. the suspense is killing me.

my mechanic is going to be strict, because he thinks the car will get undue attention from the authorities after the conversion (why he thinks this, i don't know). he doesn't want to be held accountable if there are any questionable safety issues.

matt: you fried the spiders!! i put mine in a nearby bush. lovingly, one by one.

no, not really one by one. you can't see in the pic, but they're on a very fine web "mat" of their own making. i just grabbed a corner and the whole lot of them peeled off to be carried away.
