    Starter seized up, caused a dead short, wires burned to shit. Fortunately the only damage were the starter's +12 and GND wires and starter. The rest of the electrics are just fine. Scared the hell outta me seeing thick smoke rolling out of my hood when I went to start 'er up.

    Should only take a day or so to clean up the soot, molten insulation and replace the starter. I think this might be my excuse to relocate my battery and fuse the damn thing.

    Too easy, Wil...Too easy.

    Glad your car didn't burst into flames, and that you are okay.
