Next year we'll paint Easter Eggs...
This year we were busy laying down the first layer of primer in the interior and upgrading to a South African Grille. Saturday was the day to paint. It was a quick process to lay down the paint, but taping everything off took a good hour or so. It looked like Burt was either on a crime scene from Dexter, or a meth lab used by Walter White.
South African Grille
We tackled the SA Grille this weekend. It had been sitting in a box in our hallway for weeks, so I was overjoyed to finally get it out of the house.
We had one hurdle to overcome - drilling the lights in correctly. The kit we purchased came with the plastic grill plate and two lights. The two center lights seemed like "two left shoes" to us, as their base-plates were notched out and angled but both in the same direction as opposed to symmetrically. We read that this is standard (but it just seems so janky!) and so we just installed them best we could. One had to be drilled on in front of the car's grille panel and the other was drilled in partially behind (if you have questions, message me and I can send photos!).
Once we were done with the real work, we decided to take Burt for a spin to Montrose Beach and then stop by our friend Becky's house for Easter Brunch. You have to drive under the El tracks to park at her house, which I thought made a sweet photo op to show off the the new face-lift:
