    Our governor just make an executive order locking Michigan down for 3-weeks starting tonight at midnight.
    Looks like I-94 will be ideal for some Vmax testing soon.

    It is a great time to take your car apart for projects you have been meaning to do. I am swapping out the driver's window motor, adding some insulation, fiberglassing up some replacement door mount tabs, replacing the aftermarket ignition cylinder with a factory one to match the doors, and maybe even figuring out why the backup lights don't work.

      PA's govornor decided to issued a stay-at-home order as well as business lockdown in my county. Luckily, my stage 1 regrinds will be here this week so I get to install them between online class work. Otherwise I have been doing some small projects and dreaming up new ideas for the car.

        It does offer some benefits for getting things done on projects. I hit some mountain biking trails yesterday and they were dead which was nice for a change, however, I wasn't sure if it was due to the quarantine or it being in the low 40's.

          Same here in Nebraska. I tested the remote log in stuff last week. Everything was good, just slow. So everyone that does not have to be in person at work is from home. I'm working away in the basement.

          Over the weekend I did a proof of concept drainage ditch around our addition. Nice and isolating project.
          It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

            Car repair shops are considered "essential" here so I still have to go in. I could do some of my work at home but there is some stuff that I need to be there for.
            IDK if I could remote into my work computer from home. The network may not let me in. I can remote in from other computers in the company but IDK about from my home computer.

              As long as you have the Remote Login application [Pulse Secure] and the credentials needed to login, you should be able to. Maybe give a shot after you get home for the night

                I'm working from home. I'm an engineer. A few years back my kid built a hamster wheel. I added a desk with a webcam and that is where I attend staff meetings.

                  LOL. What was the impetus for your son/daughter to make a human hamster wheel?

                    Ok that's funny and a very engineer thing to do. Not that I don't approve, just saying.

                          Thanks for the positive comments. I have two boys, currently 17 and 18. Some years ago we went to the Discovery World Science and Technology Museum in Milwaukee. They had a hamster wheel there that lit up lights. My younger son is an Asperger's kid and has unusual ideas. He wanted to build a series of human hamster wheel powered aircraft. I agreed to let him build a hamster wheel so we could see how much power we could extract. This was back when he was 13 or so.

                          On the SC2 front I'm fixing door skin mount tabs.

                            Curious to know what that turned out to be

                              We didn't get that far. We did install an old school bike dynamo to run a light. I bought a cheap S Series alternator off of eBay which turned out to be bad, and got a refund. Then we got into one of the hovercraft projects. Here is a video of the bike dynamo in action.
