After about a month of rain and a week of trouble with my Montero and putting off work, I said [email]F@#k[/email] it and went for a cruise.

She hasn't been out in a couple of months.

Last video of the run.

I got more video but the camera was bumping up against the windscreen making a god-awful clunking.

What a nice break from the rain. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Some problems just can't be solved without a little inspiration. After my cruise today I went back to the Montero and found the problem.

A broken <edit> Fuse was hiding from me and today I found it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> ALL grins.

Thanks everybody....it was like getting the motorcycle out for the first ride of the season.

Yes Reuben that is a straight cut first gear. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> Sounds like an old tractor.

The E-Type is beautiful and Enzo Ferrari himself is quoted as saying it was the best looking car ever. Don't be fooled by it's expensive looks though, a new F-350 costs much more.

Great day it was indeedy. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Giggity!

I love the sound of straight cut gears but the lack of synchros on first gear makes it near impossible to down-shift into first while rolling.

I took her down a few winding roads but the camera kept clunking the windscreen and falling in my lap. That footage is of the last few blocks of my run. The first portion of video is of me going around the block and discovering smoke in the cab. No worries though....it was just some residue on the exhaust manifold.

Eventually I'll have somebody else get some video of me drifting her through a turn or something more exciting anyway. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> Right now I baby her around and just polish her up for shows. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/baby.gif" alt="" />

Hey Reuben, you should share pics and footage of your touring car. I bet you have some track footage somewhere we all want to see.

Same for everybody....Post up your muse. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Whatever inspires you to keep on keepin on. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
