Spotted sort of a unicorn on the road this afternoon, a bone stock second gen Mazda RX7 (FC) Turbo II that looked like it did when it was new. There wasn't even any oil smoke or apex seals coming from the tail pipes.
We made it through unscathed. One broken limb, and a couple shingles blown off. Power went out at 11pm, and is still out. Running on generator power for now. On the plus side, some have already had power restored today, and Crystal River didn't get the expected storm surge.
The heavy(ier) rains have started here (I'm just a few miles south of Crazy Jim), and were now just waiting for the storm to get up here. Jim wasn't kidding about the roads, US19 and US41 were bumper to bumper and sometimes a parking lot for the past three days. There's no gas here, and won't be til after the storm has passed. Got my generator running yesterday after cleaning six years of varnish out of the carburetor, and I have a good amount of fuel on hand. Flooding won't be an issue here, but it will be for Homossassa, Ozello, and Crystal River west of US19. There's a mandatory evacuation for everything west of US19, 1.5mi east of US19, and anyone in a mobile home. As of 6pm, the county commission and sheriff dept issued a curfew til 6am. Gonna be a long night.
Yes, the roof is too low. There is a resin body with a corrected roof, and there was a whole thread on how it was done (fantastic work, btw). I built mine using the kit body shell. I thinned the ledges that the glass sits on to almost nothing, and I sanded away the frosted edges, and polished back to clear. I used a black sharpie to go around the edge of the glass, and with the remaining ledges painted black along the with the window trim on the body, it does help "lift" the roof a little bit.
