The flapping around of our fender has finally forced us to do something about our cars. Our 12 year old Mazda has a rust spot on its fender which has resulted in the plastic part below it to pull loose, so this weekend we used automotive glue, rust converting paint, and automotive paint to put the pieces back together and make it look normal (so long as you don't look too close). Meanwhile, the other car painting job finally moved forward. The plan was to convert the 1990 Dodge Spirit that Margaret's parents gave to her earlier in the year from a paint-flaking-and-aesthetically-awkward-mobile to an art car. Today, Margaret cleaned, sanded, sprayed the hood black. More modification to come.
