Jackie and I saw wasps flying into the vents of the truck. So I found that the vent grille could be removed. Once I got it off and used a mirror, it was very clear there was a large wasp’s nest up under there. I bent up a piece of music wire and began scrapping the inside of the cowl area for the nest. Of course we were dive bombed by wasps during this sortie. I gave Jackie a spray bottle to fend off the wasps with. It worked great!!! Here is what I dug out of the cowl. My sunglasses are there for scale.

Today I showed up at dmv at 7am thinking I was an hour early. Turned out they opened at 9am on Wednesday’s. So I waited for 2 hours. The fees were $200 total. The truck was now mine!!!! No smog required!!
