    What brand of spray do you use?

    With the electrical problems and other problems you have been experiencing it would seem that it is time to cut your losses!

    www.autogeek.net "Pinnacle Crystal Mist" detail spray and 14" square microfiber towels. BUT, if the bug guts cook for a day or so they're a lot more difficult to remove.

    Sorted that out with new battery bolts. Only electrical demon that exists now is my windshield fluid pump, brand new and still doesn't work.

    I don't know what a new paint job cost up in western Washington, but when I had my Alfa 164 repainted 12 years ago it came to $3600. It was a very good paint job and looked super, but if i hadn't really loved the car, the cost would have been crazy for a car that had very low resale value.

    Tim Carroll quoted me around $1200 with me helping him. We'll strip it down at his shop, then have it taken to Five Star auto body in Vancouver WA and he'll spray it. It will be a great learning experience, now its just a matter of finding the time and getting the money, Divorces are expensive.

    Well, when the car looks bad like that, it really affects your feelings toward it. I bet if it looked all nice and shiny and new, you'd be much more tolerant of fixing her up.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    picked up some stuff from the junkyard yesterday
    UX1 from '90 deville that actually came from a 90 beretta and was swapped in 2006.
    I'm actually kind of tempted to call the number and see if the P.O. of the car answers. The name on the radio was the name on the insurance card in the car.


    pics of the car (metallic purple w/ platinum cladding and orange interior). It had 110k miles on it and was well cared for. the interior was very clean and damage free, and the paint shined like new.


    took home a set of odd colored floormats

    got a strip for matt

    and some wheel center caps


    This is the car I got the nice rear bumper from last week or the week prior. 73k miles 88 FWB. what a shame



    and in case I didn't already post it here (probably did, but I don't recall)
    a video of firing up my caddy.

    Noticed that my '93 DeVille accelerates slowly by itself once you are rolling with your foot off the gas. I'll be checking my IAC tomorrow...

    Christine does not actually do things by herself during ownership until after you die and even then it is only a violent fit of rage as a display or sorrow, mourning and ultimate sacrifice. Instead, she sort of manifests you as a part of the car that comes and goes within her, sort of a quantum leap through the physical world, to function as part of her, regardless of circumstances with just a mild hint of daemonic possession. The only other exception is to do so while you are present, prying from your subconscious desires for what is best for her by eliminating obstacles that stand between the two of you. Don't you own a Mopar? Isn't this in the handbook? If there is not a page regarding that, I have just lost yet another ounce of faith for the sad, sad company.

    The Riviera's 12v socket fuse was missing for some reason, so I put one in. Works fine. No parasitic drain.

    The strange things you find in used cars.
