Cleaning up Vikingblu

I dont have many pics. Soon, maybe after the weekend.
Dad never installed the outside rear view mirror, due to the misplaced gasket. I find driving on the freeway difficult without the mirror.
So I made a gasket for the long base mirror and rummaged through 3 cans of chrome screws. Found two that fit well, and installed the rear view.
Next the inside rear view mirror is floppy and sags after a few minutes. So thinking about a day night for the inside.
Going to machine polish, glaze and maybe wax the hood. May just use the meguiars final inspection rather than wax. Its super easy and gives a nice luster.

Very nice.

Brrrr

Thanks Roger. Yes it is a bit chilly. But the heater works! And I like to take advantage of nice weather when we have it. Not much sand on the roads yet.

Was not a fan of the black plastic wiper blades.
Looks much better imo.
