While I continue to wait for all the parts I need to complete some upgrades while I have Sharka’s head off, I thought I’d do a quick review of the tool that made it all possible. This is the Mityvac MV4560 “Cooling System Pressure Test Kit.” And it’s a beauty.

In hopes of adding a little security to my Roadster, I’ve added a Works Bell quick release. And I took a whole ton of photos of it!

I’ve not done a Linux post in a while. I thought that Firefox 4 deserved it.
Modern Ubuntu releases have made this whole process incredibly easy.
