Almost went to cruise night

– but it must not have been a good night for it?

Tried to leave for the Friday cruise night at So-Cal Burgers about 9:00 (it runsĀ  8PM – Midnight).

The headlights wouldn’t come on – parking lights, no headlights. Mess with the wiring, they magically come on. I noticed they’re aiming a bit high. Try to adjust them, the screws are rusted. Turn working lights on, get the penetrating oil from the garage.
Noticed water under the nose of the car. Open hood, see a hose coming off (of the last plain PVC hose end in the car). That hose was always a bit short- find a longer one that goes farther up the PVC to the joint. The PVC is double thickness there, should work for quite a while. Get the hose on, fill water, test. Looks good.

Back to lights: The lateral adjustments will work, one vertical works, other is stuck. Nevermind, just button it up.
Wash hands, lock house, go to car, start it. No headlights.

Mess with it momentarily, no joy.

Never mind- by the time I get it fixed and drive to SoCal Burgers, the event will be over. Next time!

(oops – late update: The dimmer switch is fussy, and was causing the problem !? #@@!!!)
