I have returned from my fabulous vacation staying with my friend and her family and I find myself in possession of a new vehicle. Not anything to impress but my grandparents had one when I was a kid and I always wanted one. Meet George.
George is in good shape for being older than me by nine years and as a bonus it escaped being "tricked out" by some baggy-pants-wearing punk dude who'd plaster it with Spitfire and Fox stickers. No offense, but every youngish guy does this.
Why "George"? This is the key tag it came with. The person I bought it from got this tag from the original owner and has no idea why it says this.
I like it! I hope my neighbor doesn't mind (his name is George). My previous truck was named James and the one before that was Charles, so it works!
Now comes the work. Poor George has been used to haul stuff from the hardware and garden supply store and nothing else. No care. *sniffle*
Yesterday, armed with Armor All, glass cleaner and Febreze, I tackled the interior.
Look at the difference between the surface treated with Armor All and the one completely faded by sun and neglect. (I used this product)
And Armor-All is not just some "manly" product only to be used by men in jeans and white t-shirts with red shop rags hanging out their back pockets. It is easy, easy, easy to use (spray and wipe) and gives your vehicle some love.
What does any of this have to do with a crafty blog? A makeover! There's plenty of things to be painted and refurbished and I do love me a makeover.
My brother bought me a box of sanding discs (thanks!) so I can scuff the exterior paint and then it can go from....faded yuck... to black. Not anything I haven't done before. I meant it when I said I'm the spray paint queen.
