Last night I installed an ABS cover into my engine bay.  The dipstick was getting in my way putting one of the screws in so I pulled it out and set it up on a shelf, and then forgot to put it back in before I dropped the hood.

The first sign of trouble today was when a state cop pulled me over on 294.  He noted then that it seemed like a little smoke was coming out from under the hood, but I was too busy wiggling my way out of getting popped for doing 25mph+ over the speed limit to worry about it then.

When we got to the venue and the hood was up it was noted that there was oil all over the underside of the hood.  Looking closer there was also oil smoking off the hot engine some.  That's when it was noted that there was a certain element that was missing.  I think it became the hit of the picnic as almost everyone there came over at one point or another to check out the car missing the dipstick.  I cleaned up the mess as much as I could there, and made sure the car still had enough oil in it, but then an effort to come up with a way to plug it back up so I didn't have oil spray back up in the engine bay while driving home. Multiple ideas were tossed around but Jim's pic was the end result.

Dumb mistake for sure, but that's what I get for working on my car when both of my Mastiffs want to be fed, too much distraction.

GSB06RT kept offering to steal one out of another car for me but I thought there had been enough embarrassment today without the CAMM name being soiled over a stolen dipstick.

So as Paul my feel this is a mistake,and not exactly happy we have shared this info. I see it as a memory. And a story to be shared. For the record He won a cleaning kit at at the picnic, So much a karma intervention,,, this will help in his cleanup needed, we now have a memory to share as a group.. Every thing happens for a purpose this is just one story. Kermit lives as a reminder that it happens Cool

A little messy towards the rear of the engine bay but fine. I've already cleaned up most of it. If I had been running my half covers I doubt there would have been any burning oil. I gotta cut and paint those and get them back on.

Oh I've fucked up much worse than this in the past, but usually it's not as public as it was today. Nothing you can do but laugh about it. Jerry is worrying me a little though with is proposed dipstick salute.

The best part of the day was the prize you won and how you won it, which no one has mentioned yet

Ya I was more concerned for him when I was following him over and I kept seeing these little puffs of black smoke coming from under his car. Enjoyed chatting with you as well and Leslie, great people! Next weekend will be my turn to make the cannonball run through Illinois, hope I make it, looking forward to it.cheers

Ha yup! Again for those that weren't there I won a raffle prize for coming to the show. Everyone was given a ticket. When they listed off the prized the NWIMA guy (Jerry I think) let people pick tickets from the bag for the winners. It just so happen that when the guy asked my brother to pick a ticket guess which one out of all the other he chose: Mine with the matching number. I think that was the uproar in the crowd chimed in. Anyways I won a 50% off certificate for a Flowmaster item of my choice. Still surprised as all hell. And yes Paul my brother got his big dinner before I left for work. My mother was against the strippers idea so no go there.

I want to thank Hurst Pak (Paul) for putting this event on and all the hard work you put into it, from the setup, food and door prizes. I can't wait for next year and I'll bring 3 bags of ice for you.

Thanks to Vikes4093, Jlg1963, Gsb06rt, Moaugust88, Kermit and Endless for coming out and for the great time hanging out. Congrats to Kermit and Moaugust88 for the door prizes and can't wait for the next show.

Also thanks to MMA for coming out in force, always a great time.
