at least when it’s all over I’ll have a really nice ass

End on the car that is…

Apparently the story wasn’t interesting enough for car talk… so I sent them an email. They noted that although SOMEbody would read the missive, they likely would not. They suggested posting my question to the forums, and what a great idea that was. Within the hour I had a really good suggestion.

These cars have what we might call a roll cage/roll bars, and the suggestion was that I inspect these for damage when the roof came off. Which it did today. It was weird seeing my car all apart like that. Turns out they did body work on one door and the rear quarter panel, but will get a new rear door. The roof is new from the factory. But the gate (=hind end, or, um…) is from another car. This one has a special extra, the wind faring or whatever it’s called, it’s supposed to keep dust off of the rear window. We’ll see…

So after “inspecting” the car, we went for lunch, a beer, and some recycled clothing shopping. All of which I very much needed.

    They’re hiding all the stitches and bolts and other Frankenbits pretty well. :)

    I wish you could go recycle clothing shopping here with me. Maybe someday. At any rate, in my life, clothing is never about NEED. If only I were a monk, but then I dread the thought.

    Will all the new parts match?

    Because I’m sure the thing you were most worried about was dust on the rear windows…
