Waiting for the windshield guy. Sometime between 12 and 5. So while I'm waiting I'll do a few other minor things before I leave Thurs.

Woke up waaay early. Went to the garage to bleed the brakes... discovered my 2 caps for my Motive bleeder are not compatible with the 2020. I did it old school and as far as I know, the brakes are now bled. I haven’t taken it for a test drive yet.

Got the connections for the Battery Tender, as I discovered 3 weeks of sitting is enough to drain the battery. So now it's a lot easier to connect it when I park it in the garage.
Could be the dreaded CD changer cycling even with out a key in the ignition. Have seen several including mine do it. Seems to be only on the 2007-2009 cars.

Success!!! Put the car back together, lowered it and took it out to bed (and COOK) the brakes... they work! Looks like I can take the CFTP to Shelbyfest after all. Time to pack and load it.

Nothing that I've heard, and it's not exactly silent when loading CDs and stuff. But it's got plenty of electronics that are on, so it's just lots of micro-drains. At least that's my thoughts. But it's not gonna happen again with the tender on it.

I heard a noise coming from the car during hibernation with the cover on. This is what I found.

Wondering why I'm still here and not on my way to Jefferson City.

Took a nice walk last night with my wife around our local park. Today is maintenance day with oil change for her car and mowing/bailing the back yard before it rains again.

I have no where near the skills of Goose, but I did install this JLT master brake cylinder cover. Looks like how Ford should have done it. Maybe .00001 HP loss do tot he extra weight. Lol
