Well, a bit more drama to round everything off lately. I was going to head to the border yesterday to ship my old steering rack back, and I couldn't leave my g/f's place as my battery died.

It didn't just need a jump, but about 10 minutes of charging with her car so mine would start. And voltage was dropping again each time I went to start just getting her home.

This is the 2nd Optima red top that's failed in 6 years and I've grown tired of the drop in quality of these things.

I found out that a battery for an SVX fits in the Optima cage I have in the trunk, just a bit taller. I have a battery that I'm not completely thrilled about, but nothing else was open yesterday being that it was a stat holiday around here. Oh well, I'm kinda stuck with it, so I'll keep it til it starts dying and get a really nice one then.

My g/f said after that she didn't want to tell me, but had a bad feeling about me heading out yesterday. I guess I avoided something...
