New Paint

I just got the Bobcat back from the paint shop.  Filled it with gas.  Polished the wheels. Checked the oil. Cleaned the interior.  Vacuumed.  Cleaned the glass.  Parked her in the garage and sat back and smiled. 

Looks great!!

Next morning, however, it won't start :'(

But a new starter and relay got it back running.  I'm happy again.

Thanks!!  I love it -- but black does show every little flaw.  And its hard to keep clean.

But I can't stop admiring it!

What's next?   Stereo system?  Re-finish wheels?  AC?

I've had many black cars. Here's a tip. Regular Pledge. It repels dust & covers up swirl marks in the paint

Like the paint job. It makes the chrome pop.
