But it turned out nice.
Did you know they eliminated the lights and wires on the Z/28

Just remember, you can't walk on it for 24-ish hours and you shouldn't put any cars on it for about 3 days.

Yeah, I think that's the one....gray with flakes. I have been toying with the idea and eyeing that box at HD for quite a while. But, ... for $107 for the 2 1/2 car kit, I've been putting it off. Luckily, I'm in a little better position now than I was a few weeks ago. So, I've been doing chingos of projects around the house. Figure I might as well finish off the garage and get the floor done too.

And seeing as though you can't park on it for a few days, it looks like the Kia is going to be sitting outside for a week.

Oh, not only that, but I'm going to keep that box in the attic just in case as well!



When I started the garage renovation, I had more room and clearing crap out in mind. So...I just built a "lean to" on the side of the house between the house and the fence today....gated it in with hardware and all. Now ALL the lawn stuff is out of the garage and in the shed. I can't believe how much more room there is now in the garage...unbelievably nice.

Hopefully tomorrow I can go by Jay's in the morning and get that quote on the Opti-coat.

What are you going to do with your old wheels? Anything wrong with them. PM me if you are going to get rid of them, I may be interested.

Planning on putting them up for sale in the members section. Nothing wrong with them. A couple tiny paint chips at the lug nut area from where I slipped with the impact. The outer blue paint ring would need to be repainted or touched up on a couple which I could probably do (unless you'd rather repaint them back to red ... which they are under the blue). Just faded.

in other news........

I got my splitter back from Jacks Paint Place. Looks like new. The crack was fixed (thanks Darrell) filled, sanded, primed, and hit with plasti dip. We'll see how long that plastidip hols up. Hopefully for a while...until I need to just take it off and re-do it! HA!

De-badged the back except for the bow tie.

Tried to drill out the broken hex screw from the camber plate (tightened it too tight and it broke the head off). Well, the extractor bit that I had to twist in there mother freaking BROKE in the drill hole. SH!T. So looks like I'm just not going to use that screw hole anymore...

Replaced the blue footwell lights with GM blue footwell lights. MUCH better and matches the ice blue from the ABL. Also did the dome and trunk lights.

Car is going to go in for opticoat possibly next week and new tint.

Doug,

Not a good solution, but you have to come and see me with Dana and a cocktail for a better one.

Oh...and I took off, taped off, and repainted all four rotors black. The rear aftermarket rotors freaking RUSTED. The front OEM replacements were fine. Just looked like ass... Looks a million times better now.

You forgot to wire brush the centers and cover them with anti-seize.

Don't tell Mike or he'll want to come. Sue is always welcome, but Mike didn't invite me to dinner last Sunday Maybe we should call Chris

We are staying at home this weekend before the summer race schedule kicks in. You?

Yeah...I noticed that as I was running out of time before work. Said screw it...would come back to it later. Working 7 days this week so I haven't had the time to get back to it....but it's in the plans.

And yes....I love you long time.

Very busy. One thing after another around here. Still more to do. Ugh...

And I know how you feel. I did the blue...paid $$ for it...only to turn around and drop even more on how it should have been done in the first place. But, where it's at right now is where it should be. It's done and it's WORTH it. LOVE the ice blue.

Got it. Won't tell Mike.

Working Friday and Saturday till 9:30pm. Then going to work off duty at Jay's Detail customer appreciation day (car show) Sunday morning 9-1ish. I'd like to try to figure something out, though.


BTW, thanks for the invite last Sunday. I would have loved to have joined y'all.
