As I mentioned in Midnight Blue to Black, it is irrelevant whether or not the limo was *washed out* at PH. The limo was only there for about 1/2 hour, during which time the top was put up. Some of the washing undoubtedly had to do with wiping off the areas where the grommets would attach the roof pieces to the frame of the limo. But the fact is, the SS had SS100X in their possession for over twelve hours after the assassination, before they finally turned it over to the FBI for a late forensic exam at 1 a.m. 11.23.63. Were there no buckets of water on the C-130 in which the limo sat for two hours at Love Field waiting to leave for AAFB? Would there not be water and towels at the WHG, where the SS conducted its own *exam* from 9 pm until 1 am? It is my thinking that the SS could have done just about anything they wanted during all that time.
