After a 3.5-month wait, my car finally arrived. To say that it is a beast would be a major understatement. Normally, I give my cars female nicknames, but not this time. After 15 minutes behind the wheel, it virtually named itself. "THOR!" lol
Had the wheels powder coated to go from black to brass. Very pleased with the outcome. Going back to the shop next week for a full ceramic coating. All that's left is to install my Sirius XM radio account and I am good to go until the weather turns cold and it goes into storage until next spring. Between now and then I plan to basically live in the car. :-)
I have managed to wind-down my business activities and have stopped taking any and all new work from current clients and those looking to hire me. It has been a rough transition, but at least now I can devote whatever time I want to my own projects without feeling guilty that I am neglecting a client's needs while doing so. I have kept my oldest client as his monthly invoice pays for the car and the insurance. I thank him every week for covering my new ride and he's happy to do it. lol
I hope that you folks are doing well and gearing up for a fantastic summer. I plan to take a few road trips this summer so I'll stop by to post some pics of my travels.
Be well and stay safe!
