Well it's almost been a year since the Mexican 1000 and I just got around doing what I believe is the last race-damage repair. At some point south of Lorretto the fan shroud came loose and chipped off a couple fan blades.

I eventually repaired the shroud with some bailing wire before driving the car home. The water temperature never changed and even though Man-a-fre gave me a good used one when I returned to the US it took me almost a year to put it on.

On a brighter note - There's an apricot tree near the top of hills and it was in full bloom. It was amazing that in the middle of this windy high desert there was one tree that was so happy.
