The car has a new nickname: "the electric umbrella". It's been pissing rain (as anyone on the eastern part of the continent knows), so no Pirate Bike riding today. Exactly what the car was made for.

Except I need a heat source. High humidity, cool temps + no heat = visibility problems. Common approach is to scavenge a ceramic heater from one of those little space heaters and install it in place of the OEM heater core.



Motor compartment, currently.

Emergency disconnect isn't done yet, but it'll be wrapped up tomorrow.

I realized I would have disconnected it unintentionally this evening. Got in the car at the store and pressed the clutch and brake when I put the key in. Tired. Old habit.
