Lol I should have expected that from JG.

But actually Legend says that Jesus came into Jerusalem on the back of a Sicilian donkey, and the donkey loved Jesus so much that he followed him even to Golgotha where upon seeing him crucified, he cried and turned his back in sorrow.

The shadow of the cross was then forever emblazoned on his back, and all Sicilian Donkeys have this and tear mark traits to this day.

That is quite different than the story of the San Diego Donkey.
Those are simply full of sh1t and leave a trail of poop.

This:

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Though it was somewhat of a pain in the ass.  Working on the climate control head as well.  Waiting for some red LEDs for that one.  The way I'm tackling that beast is even MORE of a pain in the ass. 

Only thing I might still play with on the head unit is the screen color.  I would really like it to be red, but I couldn't even get the DIC screen red.  Best I could do there was orange...

I ordered a new water pump with o rings for the. Ew build. Might as well since everything go else will be new and much easier to change it when it's out of the car.

They seem to go around 60k miles.  I'm probably due since it has been at least that many since mine was changed.  I changed Dee's at 58k

82K and no issues...yet!!!

Oh and I'm kicking around the idea of buying a Sky.  Found exactly what I want for cheap.  Probably going to take a little trip to look at it this weekend.
I was gonna try to find a beat up, broken up, salvage to fix as I know a guy in Cinci who brings them back to life.  Nothing good on the auction blocks lately that fits what I'm looking for.

Took my car out of the garage (winter sleep) for a spin, because it looks like winter is done here in Germany.
We had lot of sunny weather over the last few days and it seems that spring will come soon. :yay:
