    Absolutely safe Shaun. I set the parking brake. .

    All kidding aside I used the rear bumper post as a fulcrum and just lifted from the front straight up. Engine hoist just rolled closer as the angles changed.
    Very safe respite how it looks upended.
    The wife stayed out of the garage all night she was so nervous.
    Hehe.
    Back down safe this am to make sure there is no standing water.
    Epoxy tonight I hope.

    I went dinking around to see how far south Mike was to you and found this very interesting 'fact'--

    90% of Canadians live within 100 miles (160 km) of the US border.

    That would be our border defence force.

    I tend to forget we are south of many states here in southern Ontario actually.
    Thatís weird.
    Regarding the heat I run a torpedo heater on the floor. Burns diesel and fairly clean so that should be enough.
    Fired it up a few days already. Helped to dry the water after the frame wash actually.
    And yup 90 % of us canucks hug the southern border. Like a cat to a heat register.
    Hereís a night view of our continent.

    It never dawned on me that little Walla Walla is WEST of my best friends city of El Cajon/which is about 20 miles inland from San Diego. He pointed it out 3 or 4 years ago when I was visiting and said something about being further west than he was. I found that 'weird'.

    Yeah, good luck with that.
    Of course the Russians used their geography ,(specifically in winter) to defeat Germany in two world wars so Now if a Canadian team could just pull off a Stanley Cup win
