Heater Heater,

Isaac - I read your reply but want to give it another shot to you.

1. I speak from the experience of 47,000 miles in my Mark IV, and probably 3-4 dozen drives in the rain, at least half a dozen of which were "the sky is falling" gushers. I don't intentionally head out in the rain unless I'm in the midst of a multi day journey (See patented "Tour de XX" adventures).
2. If you limit yourself to slam dunk warm sunny drives, you'll really be limiting your options, especially where you live. Warm days can turn into cool evenings on the way home.
3. Rain X in combination with a manual model T type wiper does the business with rain. No doubt Rain X and real wipers would be even better. You needn't be wary of starting a drive if there's a possibility of rain later on.

I'll leave you alone after this but just suggest you think twice while your in this phase of the build before opting out of the heater.

I am going to be receiving my transmission from Mike Forte and am wondering if anyone in the Vancouver WA/Portland OR area has Coyote Lift Plates I can use in about 2-4 weeks? I have the chain and the lift as well as the bolts, but need the plates.
