Where are you? Looks like you have a lot of deer running around.
I work in Northern Va close to DC. There are a bunch of deer around because no one hunts them. Too close to stuff for a shotgun...but no one will hear a crossbow. Hunting is legal on non posted land in this county. I've got a VA hunters license so deer are about to go nite nite.

It's been a long time since I started my Cobra lower bumper swap. Through all the years @Davedacarpainter has been a huge help with this. The PBA 3m 8115 has been holding up really well. The end caps were never finished. I tried all types of stuff....and thought....and thought some more. Tried spray foam ( like the youtubers ). Back in the day we used to make body kits out of the junk. Fiberglass and bondo over it.That crap was hell. Got one side done and ready for a mold...but the drivers side went to crap. Honestly, I could have done it with bondo but that crap is expensive for this and one time use.

Today I finally went to Micheals and bought 6 pounds of plasticine reusable, non hardeningn clay. Should've done this years ago. I used to do ceramics ( yes, statues and ash trays. Lol )but it's been a long time. Here's what I've gotten so far.

The plan is to smooth this stuff out and make a mold. Then use some type of concoction to end up with a halfway decent part. I've got a little experience making molds but this will be a challenge for me. Most of the stuff I've done has been for ceramic pieces. We'll see how this goes....might take 2 or 3 more years but I promise an update. Smh

Picked up a new beater...well...new to me. This thing is great and might help keep the mileage down on the 19. The guy I bought it from had all the papers in the car. No rust It's got a new lights, new rack, PS pump, coil overs, front and rear brakes, front calipers, coil overs, tie rod ends, water pump, timing belt, clutch, flywheel, and all bolted on a 46k JDM d17a. All this stuff done at once with less than 200 miles on them. Cars really clean and needs nothing.

I was into imports years ago before I got the mustang bug. This thing should suit me well for a while. For 500 I couldn't pass it up. Over 5k in receipts and a good inspection.

A guy I work with....they estimated value at 300... I offered 500...he sold it to me. He wanted to buy wheels for his WRX. Smh

Nice little daily driver. Theres a 1998 Civic here at the body shop that's a total loss. Older dude owns it, cleaner than hell, original owner. Easy repair if I were to buy it, but its insured by an insurance company that we have a contract with and we cant buy those totals. As soon as that car hits the salvage yard itll be picked up by some lucky buyer, fast! Needs a fender, front bumper cover, headlamp and a little work on the radiator support. That would be a perfect car for me. I live about 25 miles from where I work, total opposite side of town. Oh well.

I hate how places do that. If it were a customers car I wouldn't have been able to buy it without loosing my job. I could've bought it through the company but they add a 300 buck buyers fee...and add on tag and title fee. We had an agreement before the appraisal. The appraisal just set the base line for what I would pay. If they would've offered around 1200 I would've passed on it.

Just a couple pics to keep this thread alive. This is how Dusty sleeps.

Had to buy a new washer and dryer....oh the woes of not owning a pickup truck. Those things would've been long gone.

Here are Dusty's friends patiently waiting for him to come out and play.
