Awesome day in Ohiopyle yesterday. I rode for almost two hours, on dry trails, in shorts. I never thought I'd be doing that at the end of January.
With the assistance of the viking cat, I made some more progress on the Cabrio this morning:
I have all the crushed parts torn off, so now I'm just waiting to hear back from a couple junk yards to see if they have what I need. Before I started doing this I didn't realize that there was a nation online junk yard inventory, but it sure is convenient.
I think the fender is going to be the only thing I'll have trouble finding. As the guy at one of the yards just told me in an email.
"Passenger side fender ------- NOTHING ON THAT ONE." Car guys manage to sound gruff even in writing.
Since it'll be hard to match the original paint, I'm probably going to redo the whole car. I'm leaning towards Hot Rod Flatz paint because it ends in a z, and I love words that end in z.
