Took the bird to be detailed yesterday. gal from my last job does it on the side. When she got done (4 - 5 hours later), it was 95° & this old fat boy wasn't standing out there any longer than required. The ONLY after pic. I took was the engine. I think it turned out right nice! May get more today.

One LARGE problem is I'm teknolojliklee challenged! Technology tends to confuse me. :-\ I get by fairly well on spacebook, but that's about it. One of the groups there (AMC Universe) was gonna do a "virtual" car show since everything's getting cancelled. So, me & my bright ideas decided to make a video like they said. I almost didn't post it & am still half tempted to delete it! I don't know how to get it from there to here even if I wanted to. Sorry, y'all, by the way, the birds got me the FIRST night! Right across the hood & front fender. Apparently they found something purple!

IF this goes through, it's my attempt at a video. NOT the best video you're gonna see in your life unless this is the only one! Van Gremlin, I expect you're right. There's just something about a clean car & birds ...! :censored: Thanks all for the kind words, if y'all recall Brandon, I got it from him a couple years back. He took care of it when he had it, I'm just trying to keep up with what I started with. Do have ONE more pic. The gal that did the detailing posted a pic. on her page, so I stole it.

Thanks for the additional picture and the video.  It's tough to do things that require two hands, like opening a hood, when you are holding onto a camera lol!

 ;D Kinda a tight fit under there anyway with that brush guard. My somewhat larger than needed hands don't help. Thanks for the compliments, it's been a good old bird since I got it. Brandon took care of it while he had it, I'm just trying to keep it up.

I remember when Brandon had that car, looks like it is still in great shape.  Keep up the good work!

Thanks! :) I'm trying, it's rough. He had it pretty much done when I got it, just keeping up is a job sometimes!
