Austin Skyline
rrankin
During SXSW parking is a premium... I managed to use a reserved spot on the top of one of the state garages yesterday and the view was fantastic. The Frost Bank tower is on the left and one of the distinct buildings that identify the skyline as Austin, TX.

Fuel Line before and after

Fuel Line before and after
rrankin
My fuel line under the tank started to leak... This is because sometime in the past someone re-routed the break line and ethanol in the fuel. My temp fix is on the right.

Obviously I'm going to restore the break line to the original location.
