Gone, But Not Forgotten – UPDATED

Posted: August 22, 2010 in Uncategorized

The car cover I usually keep over the car was getting ripped on the jagged Right hand door.  The door had been so damaged in the accident in 1969, that the outer skin protruded out wildly, and the jagged edges were quite sharp.  I had ordered and received a new cover but wasn’t about to put it on until I had done something about the door.

Today was that day.  I left the hinges bolted in the door jamb, but removed the bolts holding the door onto them.

Just by removing the door, I have dramatically increased the value of the car, and home values of every house within a 3 block radius of my home.

I will be putting on the new door I got last week so that the local cats won’t decide to make it their next penthouse.

***Update***

I have installed the good door.  The door post needs some tweaking on the latch side, as the collision damage has dented the area in. This will be easy to straighten so I am not worried too much.
