Intrepid Fender Replacement

Today I took advantage of unseasonable weather (hooray, global warming!) to replace the damaged fender on my car. This is a picture of my car with the fender removed and the hood up. You would have to look hard to find any damage in this picture, but there is some.

When I took the fender off, this piece of the headlamp assembly fell out. Oops.

This is a comparison of my old fender to the new one.

So here is the new fender in place and the new hood. I've been lucky in the repair so far. The color of the junk parts matches my car's color.

Just another picture from the side. I have a few more bolts to tighten and plastic parts to adjust, but I ran out of daylight. The fender is basically attached at this point, though. You can also see the battery charger in this picture. I did not have luck recharging the battery. Replacing the battery is a major chore. Hopefully it just needs more time with the charger or something.

Blog over 2000 views

Well, my blog is now over 2000 views.  It has 58 posts.  Posting was easier when I was traveling more.  Right now I am not traveling much, and it is insanely cold outside (the global isn't warming fast enough), and my camera has dust or something in the lens.  I have to send it back to get it fixed again.  I hope they appreciate how much this interferes with my blog posting!  Perhaps I will travel more, the weather will warm, and my camera will get fixed.  If so, then it's blogs away!

Thanks to the person responsible for the other 1,000 views of my blog.  I'll race you to 3,000.
