Default Detailing got out of hand

Well if you remember I got my car a little over a year ago and said I was going to do some detailing over last winter and planned to have it on the road by spring. Yeah right, some updated photos of the car right now. http://s814.photobucket.com/user/12b...?sort=6&page=1

Definitely, fortunately I don't suffer from that type of obsessive compulsive behavior. Which is why my car looks like a beater.

The car is looking great!


I can relate to being OCD.

I got to the point when I was about to start installing all the new fuel and brake lines and even though the frame was half way decent clean already I said I can make it better. As I went along I decided taking the rear out and exhaust only would make it easier to get into clean and paint the frame. Well here's to next spring.

Don't get me going, don't think I haven't thought about removing the rear bumper. If I knew all the frame bolts would come out with no problem it would have been off the frame.

I am so lucky that I am not OCD. With my old, dusty garage I would never leave my car alone.
