Chances aren't good that the lakester will be ready then, but there's a good chance I'll see you there.

Doesn't win any award for collector design. :oops:
But hopefully it will allow more test-running in the dry heated garage, while it's wintry outside. The main goal is to get the noxious fumes outside, but perhaps I'll also be able to listen to the engine itself, rather than just the exhaust roar.

" ... not really surprised."- that it worked awhile; or that it self-destructed? :roll:

So now I'm a slave to the weather outside, to continue testing. :(
