Drove her 41 miles to a custom body shop, 2200 to get the front clip repainted and repaint the fiberglass hood I got from a vanner on here. After ten years she's got some small cracks on the lower front spoiler and left front flare. Can't wait to get that hood on with the scoop!! Looks like August before he can get to it. Drove her back and detailed her then put it away for the day.

No such thing as too much preventative maintenance, but there is such thing as too little budget.

Glad to hear that y'all are OK. How old was the tire Ricky?
I've got tires (295/50s) on the rear of the GMC that I don't trust any longer. They were made in April of '04. They look good at about, maybe, 65-70% tread left but they're too old for me.
Again, very happy that you had things under control.

We hadn't driven the old Ford in a long time. So we decided to take it and wash it off. You ever had a vehicle so dirty that, at the vend-a-wash, you feel like you're painting?? lol
Anyway, it's was pretty dirty.
After spraying the crud off we decided to run out that tank of gas. So, we went loaferin'! We went back roadin' and found a nice place to eat. Eased around for about 120 miles total.
The old Ford, as always, seemed to enjoy it as much as we did!! grin
It was a good Sunday.
