    The trunk-lid rust should be an easy fix.

    thanks. Needs a vacuum taken to it though. You lift up the edges to look under the plush pads and you'll find old dog bones (milk bone things). Found 5 already. Needs some detailed cleaning.

    As for the rust... I was thinking eventually just getting some navel jelly on it... cleaning it up and putting some primer (re: rattle can paint) to keep it from rusting up again until I can get it done properly.

    The 88 took a hit.

    A really nice, little old lady in a Saturn View ran me off the road today going home for lunch. If I had managed to completely climb the curb I could have avoided it, but the curb bounced me back to the road and into her SUV that was taking her half of the road out of the middle. I had to take the busted molding off the door to get it to open and took the mirror off cause the head broke off from the mount arm and I didn't want even more damage to the door.

    Fawk. I am guessing it is pushed in a bit all along the rub marks?

    very precious little. Once I buff out the rub marks it will be barely noticeable. I'll let the insurance adjuster come out and give me info first. Gotta wait until Monday for the police report though. No biggie since it still drives fine. I miss my mirror though.

    need to fix the 88 first. on that note, I'm getting a check from the insurance company without totaling the car in the realm of $1200 and change. I worked with the folks doing the estimate and told them to leave off the mouldings since they are unobtanium anyhow.

    so if anyone has a chrome driver front wheel well trim... hook me up. also need a driver power mirror. The doors I'll buff out myself. I may or may not fix the dents since they are very small and not real showy once I get the black paint off that the Saturn left.

    done buffing out the paint. the only real dents are around the seam between the front fender and driver door.

    ok... finished with the tidying up the engine bay of the MGM (at least what I'm going to do right now). Took the old air filter bracket off and put a real intake tube on it. Also put the 90 TC fan shroud on... looks a lot cleaner on the driver side.
