Another Straggler wandered in.
« on: May 19, 2009, 06:38:30 PM »
Hello old friends and new friends.

I decided I didn't have enough places to stop by each day to check on all things Solstice.

Since this seems to be a site geared towards modifications, and I have been forbidden to make changes to the car, I will probably not have alot to contribute.

Welcome Dave!

Remember that small dent on my back deck lid that you said couldn't be fixed or would be next to impossible to fix? Well, the dent magician at Mecca III got it out! : :yay:

It IS his wife's car ... that's why he's not allowed to modify.  We just about fell over when she said it was ok to do the side marker mod.
