I suck

Saturday, 3 February, 2007

I’ve not protected the finish on my truck. It has been a long time since I found the space to put a nice coat of paste wax on the finish. Far too long, in fact. How do I know this for sure?

Last night while getting into the truck to go home I saw a peculiar deposit on the roof of my truck. I rubbed it and it got bigger. The coat is coming off my truck. In case you were wondering, nothing but steel is underneath. The clear is essentially gone.

I have no idea how one recoats or paints a powder-coated vehicle … and the flashy stickers on the sides will have to come off. They are more appropriate for a fellow around thirteen years younger. Should I get a dash cover and real seat covers while I’m at it? The fender fixed or replaced. The driver’s door trim fixed or replaced …

Where do I go to learn about my options? I don’t want to show up at the body shop in ignorance. Let’s see …

Two grand and I’m good for a while. Until the electrical stuff starts going out …
