I used blue masking tape to tape up the chrome then painted the trunk deck bowtie black.
Nice job if I do say so myself

It's been a while but something finally happened with Aly!... Bad news though...

Wipers went wonky as well as needing adjustments, Alignment was off, Tie Rods needed replacing and the heating went the day before me and some buddies went to Jasper for a Snowboarding trip... But it's cool. Got It sorted soon after the trip and were back on the road again! Other than that all's well!

So was the heating cool or...?
Just wondering what caused the heating to go out.

We drove it to the hospital where my wife works then loaded up the trunk and backseat full of Christmas stockings for kids then delivered them to the Salvation Army.




Damn this car's trunk can hold a lot but there were 2 big boxes filled at the hospital so we had to use the backseat too.

Yesterday a guy in an Impala the same color as mine drove by me at least 4 times. The thing was his paint looked much better than mine
After some internet research this morning it was off to Autozone, I picked up a Mothers clay bar kit & Meguiar's NXT gen 2.0 wax. I filled a bucket with HOT water (it was 0nly 33 degrees) & simple green & gave a car a good scrubbing.
Moved the car into the garage where it was warm enough to work comfortably.
Next was the clay bar, it was my 1st time using one simple job that's hard to mess up just takes awhile. Impala's a BIG car. After clay baring I gave it a quick wash then 2 coats of wax...I'm getting too old I need advil
I think mine looks better now

@BillGsa that looks so good I thought it was a stock photo at first lol. Good job!

So, today, I didn't do anything to my car. However, one of the wonderful people in my parking lot obviously had other plans. I woke up to this today. No note, NOTHING.

What did you do to your Impala today?-24909609_10155105261345777_2452645170640810075_n.jpg

What did you do to your Impala today?-25152074_10155105261180777_2814848257940872805_n.jpg

Aside from the fact that I am absolutely sick and tired of having people with absolutely ZERO sense of personal responsibility hit my car, I'm particularly incensed for two reasons.

One, that is a new bumper. I put that on this year, after someone backed into it and split it.

Two, because of above-mentioned event, I got a dash camera with parking mode. However, probably because I left the sensitivity too low (new software update) IT DIDN'T PICK UP THE HIT. OHMYGODWTFASDJKGHA SLKGDPAIS TP([email protected](T*PSD.

So anyway, that's what happened. Hope you guys are having a better weekend car-wise.
