  1. Enjoy it we are on our way to full blown winter!
  2. My DIY security ....about 30 years ago before technology lol I had a problem with ppl stealing our snomobiles I took a motion sensor light and mounted it under the eave of the shed (wired it with an extension cord) directly above where the sleds were stored I pointed the sensor down at the sleds and in the socket instead of a bulb I put in a screw in adapter that turned it into 2 prong outlet now in to this outlet I plugged in a an old battery charger and ran the charge leads to 2 nice loud Chrysler car horns all mounted up under the eave of the shed it worked very well we would park the sleds go in and plug the cord to the motion light. And yes it worked great the sensor area was directly down over the sleds so it never went off unless someone was poking around out there and they were! All we ever saw were the tracks they left behind...lol now days instead I would use a laptop adapter instead of a battery charger and for the horns some of them self contained air horns would be cool to scare the crap out of them.
  3. Well on Monday Nov 2/2020 we drove 900km to Lloydminister Alberta then Nov 3/2020 we drove 300km more through Edmonton to a rural area with the smart car in tow and dropped it off for a winter holiday at Stickman007’s place to work his magic on it. Unfortunately we only got to visit and meet for about an hour in person with the Covid and all and we did a fast turnaround and travelled back to Lloydminister then rested a day then back to Manitoba We are getting the works done on it by the master mechanic! Looking forward to next spring! Thank you stickman007 for taking this on.

I saw that connector and my battery was loose in the well sliding forward and I put a chunk of rubber under the battery and tightened it down I was worried about that connector getting damaged I like the bypass option...sorry for the dumb question only had the car 10 days so far I'm learning lots here!
