Happy birthday Ecomodder! This reminds me to block the grill in my car for the winter, but I barely drive anywhere due to the pandemic.

This year has not been much for driving our cars. I had a shoulder surgery last December followed by 6 months of rehab. I went back to work in June, then got a job with a long time former employer that came with a company truck.
My wife works from home now.
I still have a MkIV Beetle TDI with scangauge, it just does not move much

This past year I got my hands on a Fiesta ST which isn't the most efficient nugget but it works and makes fun choo-choo noises, plus it gets better mileage out of the box than my Miata did. I've been working from home since June though, so my fuel bill has gone through the floor! Silver linings for sure

Sadly, I have done very little to my MX-6 GT. Ironically, I've had lots of free time since the collapse of my industry in April 2020. Mainly been trying to fix issues with both vehicles, including some electrical gremlin on the fuel side of my truck. Since my car is blue, has no AC anymore and my headliner was deteriorating i removed it for some work. I just stripped off all the foam and material. I left it that way because I didn't really care about the look and didn't really want to recover it. I did ad a heat reflector to the top side hoping it will help in the miserably hot summers here in East Tenn. The reflective material was left over from my parents home. It was made to cover the attic insulation to reflect the heat. I was going to use a reflective/insulating heat barrier but I'm jobless and I already had the heat barrier material.

Metrompg of course. I guess I have been here a while. No new mods for me this year but I did put together a couple of new threads and did some testing with the extra time provided by COVID lockdown.

I have been driving even less than in the before times.
