On various dates along the road Nichols and Timothy Mcveigh obtained different ingredients for the bomb and Nichols robbed an Arkansas amunitions dealer to finance the operation. With the ingredients and the valuables hidden in storage lockers, Nichols and Mcveigh waited.. Until Easter Sunday, three days before the bombing, when they stashed the getaway car in Oklahoma City. then, the day before the blast, at this kansas lake, together they built the bomb.
Defense Attorney Michael Tigar began with a request for the jury "let me start with a clean page". as his client's parents, siblings and wife Marife watched, Tigar attacked the prosecution's evidence.

Heinz Prechter's the guy who started putting sunroofs in cars in the 1960s.
Today, the Michigan auto parts magnate is a very good friend of the Republican National Committee.
The RNC and its committees gave more than 2-point-1 million dollars to Jim Gilmore.
It gave almost 200- thousand to the Republican Party of Virginia -- which helped Gilmore big time.
Individual donors give money to the RNC -- in the sunroof guy's case, more than 180- thousand dollars in the last four years.
And then the Gilmore campaign hits up those national donors individually.
So on election day, when Gilmore didn't even need his help, Heinz Prechter gave five thousand dollars directly to Gilmore.
It's all legal.
It probably won't buy the sunroof guy any influence in Virginia.
But it may in Washington.
And he may sell a few more sunroofs in Virginia if we get rid of that car tax.
