    I can do without living through that twice. I had a permenant ass hood dent on my '94 Dodge Shadow that was there until it's death. Definitely not a really interesting story... I stumbled backwards and fell hard on the hood outside an italian ice place sometime in '03... never fixed it. Nothing more awesome than "dude ass dent"...

    Beautiful day out today so after I took the Vic for a spin (actually 120+ miles trip) I washed the Benz up to get it pretty looking for the work week. I also took a bunch of pics!

    And the engine....Also remnants of previous owners worries when he took it to shops for oil changes. Duct tape saying "mobile one only."

    I gotta be honest here and I did not realize it said that until I uploaded the pics so I have no idea what it says. You had me laughing good though.

    New Parts..

    Passengers side door lock mechanism, glove box shelf and a mini maglite:



    Close up of the glove box shelf:



    How the glove box came stock from 2004 and up:



    Now all of the goodies added:









    Of course the passengers side door lock mechanism was behaving lately so the part will just stand by until it arises again...


    I also began wetsanding and buffing out some of the scuff the previous owners left me in the rear bumper. Touch up paint was needed in a couple areas. Will get on it again next time I am free.

    The "ladies" are not very interested in what you drive unless it tells them what's in your pocket!!

    No idea if the ladies like it. Picked up it for myself to enjoy it and that is what I am doing with it.

    Based on your pictures, yes they are projector HID. My Buick has them, makes the 04 look like a candle and a mirror at night.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO! My baby's been hit!
















    Intern at work hit my while he was backing out of the parking spot next to me. Happened Thursday but I only noticed it Friday while I was washing the car in the morning. He still says he did not feel hitting me.

    Drives a new jeep wrangler with heavy duty plastic bumper. I showed him how the damage zone was the exact dimensions of his bumper and how he has rub marks on that part of it with my color in it. He accepted that he did it.

    Creased the wheel well of the fender just a tiny bit and scraped the paint away, scuffed the fender and dented the fender pretty good by the headlight. Also scuffed and gouged the bumper cover.

    I picked up three estimate to be fare to the kid. One was 600, one was 765.39 and the other was 765.95. I will be discussing everything with the kid next time I see him.
