The PCA suggests this site as the best how-to for paint chips:

So I'm currently sitting in the Hartford airport waiting to get on an airplane to go to Baltimore. No, that doesn't match the last published plan but at least I don't have to drive home from Providence Friday night.

I love it when meetings get done early.

Alright, Mike! Travel well, and hopefully we see you on Sunday (sounds like it's getting more and more a possibility). Who else is in? I gotta do some food shopping, and fill up a cooler with soda and with bottles that lime slices are dropped into.

So I've called velocity motorcars a bunch of times and emailed them. They don't answer phones/emails so it's not looking like I'm getting endlinks anytime soon

If you want, we can install my old ones then, which will get 90% of the work done. You can then then easily swap out the end links when you get them.

You might also check with Turner. If they have the endlinks, they are local so you could go pick them up.

I might join you guys, as I have a couple of tiny rock chips that I'd fix with all your expert help. Does someone have some spare AW touch up paint or should I try to find some tomorrow?

Anyway, my joining depends on how well my 14-mile training walk goes tomorrow and whether I'll press on with another 10 miles on Sunday. If I tear up blisters on the backs of my ankles, on Saturday, I'll not be walking on Sunday.

amy!

I say we use Andy's car for practice.

I never got to my dealer, and have a very small scrape I would like to take care of. If you run out, no biggie, at least I get to learn from ML on your car.

I doubt we will run out for a few scrapes. I won't mind being the guinnea pig either. before makes us a little less proficient

i witnessed a hit and run in the charles hotel parking garage last night. What a d-bag.

funny thing is, i was actually going back to the car to change my parking space. guess im clairvoyant.

im glad i dont have to park there every day.
