Tomorrow the recently-neglected FS gets some needed attention. Meeting up with Ivan to continue ICE-ectomy procedures. The exhaust & fuel system s are still under the car - but not for long.

Also, we need to rotate the motor 90 degrees to get the terminals into a position where they won't be covered by the battery tray that will sit over the motor. Important to be able to see/check those connections easily.

The car needs an axle seal too. Damn EV has been leaking oil everywhere it's parked!
