Dog sitting

After a hard day of dog sitting Gizmo we had to try out Skype.
I talked to Gizmo, and showed him his favorite squeaky ball with a few squeezes. He looked for it behind the monitor, but it was not there. About 30 minutes after we hung up skype, Evelyn called to tell me Gizmo would not leave her alone. He NEEDED to come visit me. Dogs can have one-track minds when they set their brain on a goal.

The Jaguar is back on the floor with the engine back in and bolted in place. Just got the radiator back from being re-cored. Note the air intake going over to the fender well.

Other side of fender well, shiny plumbing is the cold air intake.
