End: Blue '99 Car
|I decided to have all of the carpet in the car
replaced by the local auto upholstery shop. I found a place in New York
City that specialized in carpet binding and they matched up the binding
that I sent them reasonably well. I gave the roll to the shop and it
turned out well. Not exactly the same as factory of course - a little
I repaired the burned fiberglass in the right side of the engine bay.
After priming it and buying the paint, I decided that I was not in the mood for painting so I took it to a local paint shop (Advantage Collision) and had them paint it. They also painted the wing.
I recharged the A/C and it now blows nice and cold. I then thoroughly cleaned and detailed the car.
Much of my time nowadays is consumed by this:
And my daughter Lena is 52 years younger than me.
We've decided to build a new Kitchen addition on the north side of the house... along with a 3-car garageJ
As such, the '99 car is for sale!!!.
Astute observers might ask "hey guy didn't you already have a 2-car detached garage in that spot?" and the answer would be "yes". But... during sabbatical this past summer, I moved it next to the shop.
That's the end of this update as of December 11, 2014
