Damage Assessment

Since today was the warmest day in quite a while, Sara and I checked out the extent of the overspraying damage.

Two Year Anniversary

I got KITT two years ago today. Here is what he looked like on January 14, 2012...

OMG, WTF!

Just as I finished the door hinge bolts and was putting stuff away I noticed what I thought was a paint run on the driver's side rocker panel.

Getting Started Again Working On KITT

Today after work I was determined to get back to KITT. The next thing I want to do is get the doors, fenders, and hood back on the car. With those back on the car it will allow us to clean up and reorganize the garage. Frankly it has been a pain trying to work around these parts. We also have an indoor storage now, so we are going to move some of the parts from the garage into that. We love organizing, if you have not figured it out by now. ;)

I started by cleaning up the hinge bolts for the doors. They needed to be wire brushed to remove some mild surface rust. You can see that I left all of the door hinge bolts turned into their respective spots (I had already removed one before taking this picture).

KITT Is Back From The Body Shop!

This evening Troy and I went out to Mario's shop to trailer KITT home. I have been attempting to do this since the week before Christmas, but both Sara and I got really sick and the weather got really, really cold. Monday it was -27 degrees with the wind chill making it -52 degrees, just for example.

Troy picked me up about 5:45PM.

Getting Anxious

I am anxious to get back to work on KITT!  He has been waiting at the body shop for me to pick him up and trailer him home.  It has been so dang cold and snowy here lately that I have not been able to.  Soon though...
