New black grills on the Sol. Buddy has a lift, which made things easier than doing this on my back. Dropped the bumper cover completely, flipped it over and had these puppies installed in no time. Like the look a lot better than the OEM silver.

Nice day in S/E Michigan, sunny and 50F so I decided to swap out the coupe's somewhat worn original cloth seats with the nice pair a N/A black leather seats I picked up recently.

Drivers seat out, found almost $2 USD's in loose change! Now I can think about retiring! LOL

Drivers seat changed

Both Seats swapped. This is about as close to cloning the Street edition look I will get this year. To complete it I would have to have the leather seats stitching changed to orange, and I believe the door cards also. I do have orange stitching on the shifter boot and steering wheel.

Test drove it and no issues with the air bag sensor or any squeeking!

Woke mine up for a short shake down cruise. Cleaned and washed it, touchup portions with new ceramic coating and polished it. Put it back in garage and covered it up again. We're almost there, but not quite yet.

Well I can tell you that it can hold at least 1000 lbs. I had a full grown Bull Elk on top of the car and it didn't collapse. It didn't bend it either. He was HUGE too. about 3/4 the length of the car. He ran into the B pillar area of the drivers side and spun. his rear feet hit the front of the car right next to the headlight and then he rolled over onto the top.

He hit so hard it put the car up onto 2 wheels....

Amazon has something called Cat Mace. I use it to keep cats from going under my garage just before they have kittens. Seems to work pretty well, just have to do it every two-three days to keep it fresh.

Moth balls have worked pretty well for. Just about any critter with a sensitive nose will stay away. They cured my mouse problem completely.

I would think that, where you live, the cats MIGHT require something more like a .30-.30

My wife is the official Cat Lady of the neighborhood. I worry about this problem all too often. As for breaking out the Crossman, I worry more about hitting the cars than the cat(s). We keep at least two thin covers and one thick one over the Solsti. When I do see cats on the cars, I politely and gently remove them. If you go out waving your arms and cussing like a sailor the cats tend to freak and create the possibility of scratching the car. So I talk nicely to them (good kitty), pick them up off the car, gently put them down, then give them a boot in the a$$. I find cats on the cars less often. It's the dam chickens I'm starting to worry about. They are more cunning and smarter than one might think..... But at least we can eat the chickens.
