They open conventionally.
Odd, it looks like there is no door handle. That caused me to guess that they only open after the front door is open, like my Ram.

Think that I should change the glow plugs on my 1.5L dCi diesel Renault Kangoo ? I remember that Renault says every five years and/or 100K km (I think?) ... I bought a set of four glow plugs 6 years ago to have them on hand in case and still have not put them in. The originals show no signs of wear/weakness even on the coldest day(s) that we had here in Poitiers this "mild" winter. I guess this should become a weekend project in case next winter gets really cold around here ... J

Ugh! I've now been up for 22 hours straight with a 30 minute cat nap after my shift last night. Boy Scout fundraiser bagging for tips. All day. Till 5pm. We still have TWO MORE HOURS to go...

I see. Guess they had to put it somewhere, and there wasn't room lower down.

BOO! - YouTube
Odd, this is one of the suggested videos after that one finished.

Patina? Is that what that stuff is called? I guess Monstro's big brother had plenty then, a few years ago after the trip from The Emerald City to Tulsa.



And Monstro himself had plenty of "patina" a few weeks ago.

So, you have had one of your three days of good weather already then?

So, "hociR" would be the six-fingered guy with the red lightsaber (color of HD lenses) and not Mandy "Pentax" Patinkin with the pre-hociR green lightsaber ... "I want my father back, you SOB" ... and that father would be Hoya or Asahi ? J


Edit : I got this suggested as a possible video ...

It's 74 right now, and no wind. We're under a blizzard watch for Sunday night through Monday night. Un @/#$% believable!

I'm glad you brought up weather as I did not want to take us off topic.

The Admiral says I can't even think about buying a K3 until I help her with her trip. She is planning to visit the Rapid City / Mount Rushmore area around Sept 20-25 and wonders what she might expect weather wise. Having noticed that SD weather is a lot like KY (never completely predictable) what would you advise her?

September is one of the mildest, most stable months as far as weather goes. Not likely to have severe weather (hail, tornadoes, etc.), but temps in late September can range from 30s to 80s. Your guess will be at least as good as any weatherman's.

Finally, finally home! My boys each earned over $100 towards their summer camp expenses. They worked the whole day, no complaining & took only the half hour lunch I allowed them.
