I am leaving now to pick up our favorite bald headed Romanian.
He will be delivered to Kenny so they can visit NYC before coming back to PA for 2 days before we head down to MD.

The Mayor of Constanta?

So I did my first try with plasti-dip yesterday.  Trying our the 'smoke' color for a stripe.  I wanted to get a faint ghost stripe effect, but it doesn't spray evenly enough. Anyway, first try fail, no biggie.

Rather than rip it off now, though, I'm going to save if for MM Saturday to have a rip-off extravaganza.  All peelers welcome!

Plasti dip peels of much better when it is painted on thicker. If it is really thin it will be horrible.

Alright I have a couple of opinions already but here goes. I was backing out of the garage today and I heard a creaking noise. Long story short the left front wheel was the problem. I was ckecking the lugs when one nut fell off when I put the socket on it.
 Yes a busted stud.
Dave has the studs, should I drive it or bring the other car? I checked several parts stores and dealers in the area but non are available for several days.

I am bringing some black plasti-dip to do a small part on my front (the car's front) hopefully when there one day.

If some of you are into camping and have tents etc...  The Ranch Club camp ground has two sites next to each other available.  $25 a night for the first tent on a site, $10 for each addition tent on each site.  $5 for firewood.   Would need to know by tomorrow. 

The campground is on the main twisty road about a half mile from my place.

Quick!  Call JimVanderBadenische!

Anyway, I though you'd bribed Mrs.GJ to keep him home?
