The ELF goes Walkabout

The ELF decided to go walkabout today. I arrived at 8:30 am and parked the ELF facing the morning sun.  Since the new parking brake isn't very effective with the cables all stretched, I set the new back disk brake by wrapping the left brake handle with the velcro strap.  The ELF sat in the sun for 1.5 hours before this happened:

Luckily there were only minor scrapes to the parked car on the left and a broken ELF fender that is easily repaired.  I'm feeling very lucky since there is a small pond down the hill to the left!!! 

I guess I really do need to put some chocks in front of the wheels before I leave it in the sun in the morning!
