Let me know if you do, I'd love to come and watch. I didn't even know they had a tunnel.

I took this as my cue and matched it. Thanks aerohead.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

aerohead, I like the "Spirit of Ecomodder" great advertising for the site. Let's see what other think. Made a donation to your efforts and the site, thanks for the time and your vast knowledge which has helped me immensely. If you are ever near eastern Va, consider my home a rest stop, steak dinner included.

regards
Mech
