I still plan on the trip but I am having problems prepping the car, I can't get the car out of storage because of our terrible wet weather this spring. I need to fix a bunch of leaks in the engine and trans before I can leave on the trip.

Dang, I think Eric takes the prize on that one, he got it spot on, and I suspect he answered while you were typing your response.

Neat stuff!
