Re: Anyone have a battery cap?

Find a NAPA or other user friendly parts store. Usually they have a half ton of trade-in batteries to browse for caps.

Also most scrap metal places take batteries.....

Good luck

Re: Epping NH New England Dragway Auto Swap Meet

Recommend wet ground footwear for tomorrow.
Areas near entrance and parking could be wet following recent rains.
Vendors areas, for the most part, are relatively dry.
