I know I'm supposed to be blogging about Real Estate but cars are more fun. After arriving home from the auto supply with bags of filler, paint, sandpaper ect. I got to work rebuilding the rear fenders on Tara's car. Luckly I'd made a template of the shape out of a convenient house for sale sign. I filled in the missing fender sections with a self adhesive expanded metal. Then the fun stuff. I mixed up some long thread bondo and worked it into stips of fiberglass cloth then applied the whole mess to the fender and expanded metal. Using wax paper on top, the concoction could be moulded into shape just before it set up. Now for some grinding and more filler.
Last winter I cleaned out the garage and brought Tara's little CRX in to clean up a couple of rust spots on the rear fenders. Anyone who's worked on older cars knows where this is going. After blocking the car up and removing the mouldings I got to work with the grinder. OMG this little weekend project took on a whole new dimension. (see pics). So armed with a shopping list it was off to the auto supply store for me. (to be continued)
Thank you so much to everyone who made it to this year's 17th Annual Neighbourhood Skate at Oak Bay Rec.
It was great to catch up with everyone over the holidays. If you missed this one, don't worry Dave and I have it every year to thank our clients, friends and family for their on going support.
