[DML] Re: Two quick questions..



That wire is a "Bonding Jumper". It's purpose is to electrically
connect (bond) the hood to the rest of the car. It is more for the
radio and it is also a way to protect you if the wire to the light was
to ground out. In that case the fuse powering the light circuit would
blow because the electric would return to the battery through the
bonding jumper. All the panels on the car including the moulding on
the windshield are (or at least should be) electrically connected.
Since this car is built on a fiberglass underbody it is not all
grounded like a car built out of metal.
 You should not have the motor overfilled with oil. It can cause the
motor to leak and it can cause foaming inside. Drain it (or suck it
out) so that in the morning before you start it the level is 1/2 way
between full and low.
