Where's that ugly orange car? lol
Safely home and quite bug splattered, unfortunately.
I can't thank you all enough! What a great bunch of friendly helpful guys!
Rob, thanks for hosting the event and helping me with my projects and all the goodies you freely gave. Generous doesn't even begin to describe you.
You have great taste in music for an old guy!
Skip, thanks for all your help, advice and free use of your materials to make my car shine again! I didn't realize it could be so shiny. That Adam's stuff really works. It repels rain unbelievably. I was chased out of Denver by rain clouds and skirted another half dozen downpours (one so close I could smell the rain) but not a single drop hit my car! I know it was the wax. Seriously though, I nearly pulled over once because I thought something was wrong with my hood. It seemed to be sticking up in my view more than normal. I finally realized it was so glossy it no longer faded from view but rather reflected the surroundings so much I was noticing it for the first time.
Later, during a lane change, when I turned my head to check my blind spot (yeah, I actually do that), I got distracted again because I thought something was flapping on the back of my car. Turned out it was just the mountains reflecting off my trunk. Adam's polish and wax is good stuff! It can also be dangerous!
I did have one real issue on the way home. I stopped to top off the tank on the north side of Taos and when I went to start the car I heard an electrical "POP" and the entire dash went dead and the car wouldn't start. Took me ten minutes to figure out a battery cable was loose and didn't flow enough juice. It must have rattled loose on those crappy Colorado roads!
I'm downloading pictures now. Might not post them until tomorrow.
