I’d pulled off some bodywork, but other than that nothing had really changed since the night before.  I had suspicions about what was causing it.  Those suspicions proved correct.  It wasn’t a blown or damaged fuse, […]

23 November 2012 – New Ember Pics!

Yeah, I know it’s been way too long since I’ve posted anything with some actual photographs.  Like I’ve said, life’s gotten quite a bit busier than it was this time last year and I don’t have nearly as much time as I did then, so I hope you’ll understand and excuse me for that. I […]
