I'm getting really excited for the dragon.
I pulled the vert out of storage in my barn today and took it to a local body guy to have the new top installed.

However, I am still having a real problem with the starting issue I have been fighting since day one. I really don't want to be the guy at the dragon who always has to push start his car, thats just bad form.

The whole story is in this thread here.

With that said,
If I can't get this problem fixed, do you guys think I should skip bringing the vert to the dragon and find another set of wheels? I know it's good for the trip, but I don't want to be a pain in the butt while i'm there.

Dude, if shit happens and for some reason the vert wont make it home, i can put you up for a few days till we get you up and running.

We have an AWESOME yard about 20 mins away (as long as murg isnt leading) that we can pull parts from.

Last year we rebuilt the front end of chris's car from it.

I think someone should bring the $2 relay, a bit of spare wire, and do the starter relay mod while you are asleep in your hotel room. :hehe:

And then tie a water growing pink dick to your bumper...

I think you should also splice into his horn along with the starter. That'd be entertaining. :D

I'm going to try to get the nuts loose on the started while it is in the shop. Otherwise there is no way to get through the years of rust on the starter.
