Didn't you recently have another line on Vera go?
Glad you're okay.

 I don't think I have ever replaced a line on Vera, but I have on other cars. Blown brake lines are old hat for me.

 The car still has rear brakes. I just dropped it off to have it fixed. And I noticed that the tail pipe was kaput, so getting that replaced too. And I thought I might as well get them to replace the front shocks I didn't get to a couple of weeks ago.

 All done. And the new shocks make a difference. The front end is much more planted now. The car has FE2 suspension, and it is a wonderful road car.

I went to Costco today to order my new Michelins for the Concours. Unfortunately they are on back order so next week I'll be taking it in to have Pirelli Cinturato's installed, and I got them 10 bucks cheaper.

I put a bottle of that pumpkin spice fuel treatment in today.
I haven't noticed a difference but the exhaust smells good.

Who knows, maybe someone will park another 94 Fleetwood in the same place and elves can swap the bumpers.  stir pot

I asked Tony if he had a bumper in his stash of parts. The only one he had was the one that Mike got from him a few years ago.

 Me? Bumper? No, I didn't buy a bumper off him.

 Victoria came out for the winter yesterday. She runs very good. However the ECC decided to take a dump. No fan speeds, and the modes are unresponsive and no heat. There is power to the fan motor, and the ECC is lit up and the buttons work. No ground to the motor, I ground it and the motor stays running even with the ignition off.

Lots of them on E bay.
They are getting a bit pricey.

 Not sure that's the issue right now. I have to get into some diagnosis.

Did you try it in Defrost to circumvent a heater turn-on switch failure?  Otherwise, it sounds like a power module issue, under the bonnet.  On the chance a failing capacitor is involved, trying tapping it with the handle of a screwdriver.
