2 June 2013: Yes we Did!

Today, we finished the painting portion of the engine compartment appearance upgrade project, and we can put it in the dictionary next to the term:

SCOPE CREEP!

Master painter and I-CAR maven Ed Mayer came over, shall we say, primed to go!

(Ed had painted the motor):

We pushed the car into the spray booth.

We celebrated with a pair of grogs.

Hard work?  Yes, but then anything really worth having is.

Next?  Reassemble!

What did I do?  Besides make the coffee, fetch the tools, and pour the beer, I was in charge of organization and documentation.

I left the skill work to Ed and Brad, did most of the heavy lifting on the prep, and I am always ready to fetch what is needed.

After the (painting) party was over…
