Sprucing up the old girl.

Finally getting off my ass and getting the car in shape.

Sonny The Geek did the body work on the car. I helped, I did so! Shut up! Every venture requires management, supervision and quality control.

Course, someone, and I am not naming any names (Boy) was messing with the cell phone camera and the resolution was screwed up so the pictures are small.

Anyway, Sonny did a great job. Got rid of the rust spots. I got myself new hubcaps and I think she looks better. Of course, once you put new paint on the parts you fixed, then you start seeing all the scratches on all the rest of it. That is when you debate wether to grab a couple extra cans of paint and do the whole thing. (Does that make me a redneck?)

Here are a few before and after shots.








So, the boy waxed it for me today.



But couldn't resist giving his a wipe down too.




I think she looks pretty good. I also have a chrome pin-stripe that I will put down the center of 'er.



After that I should be able to find her in the parking lot at the mall, don't you think? Right now I look like an Alzheimer's patient in the parking lot.

UPDATE:

Couldn't wait to do the pin-stripe. It's subtle, but I like it.
