Ok, I had to do this so you guys wouldn't beat me up, I'm working on a hot rod ok!

This is my niece's peddle car that I painted about 33 years ago when she was 3. LOL I am re-doing it for her.

Don't know how far I will get, I am burnt out already.

March 30th, I could see about 1/2 of my yard from the melt off. In the next 9 days, we got 18" of snow. That melted back to where we were on March 30th over the past week and now we are in a blizzard with 4" on the ground and piling up quickly. MSP airport is nearly closed down because of near zero visibility....WHAT FRIGGEN MONTH IS THIS ???!!!...

Boy, you are lucky you added that. Have you used it before ? I'm NOT a painter, but that stuff makes me look like one. I ordered another quart of grey and 1 of white on Friday, for the interior of the Chevelle.

I have only used it a few times, it is super user friendly for sure. I kinda pushed it on this, it's very rusted, large pits. I will see how well it does, when I can I will push it like that on something that isn't real important. Then on something that is important I know I am safe when I don't even get near where I pushed it before.

Checked the car for parasitic draw.

It's pulling 10.4 mA, I think.

Had it hooked up like in the pic below.
Would this be correct?

Radio fuse out dropped it to 8.2
A couple other fuses dropped it .1 and .2 also.
A flasher out dropped it .1

Is this anything to worry about?

A milliamp is 1/1000 of an amp. 10 ma is 1/100 pf an amp. Many new cars draw upwards of 25ma with memory seats, radios, etc, etc. You should be fine at 10.4.

With that said, you probably can't let the truck sit in the garage for 5 months and expect it to start unless you disconnect the battery or put a battery tender on it once in a while.

Thanks.

My truck had to disconnect the battery every winter or when I didn't drive it also.

Lightbulb smiley exercises

We had the 50 degree temp drop and 40 mph winds too. Came with storms, no extra charge. Tornado hurt some folks down on the other side of the mountains last night. All I did today was service the GTP air filter and play with Cat pictures. I got rid of her white top and whisked away the skirts, did some shaving... then when it got good, the program quit working. Hate it when that happens! I was about to bob bumpers! I'll get it up if I can. The picture. Too cold to want to roast new tires but I did do some valve spring research. Those and test meters both leave me scratching my head.
