The side panel

It froze again overnight. There was ice on the car...

In the afternoon I went to Mulligans to meet up with a guy from America called Mike. On my way there I saw this hot rod ;-)

In Mulligans it was really busy. I was expecting it to be quiet, what went wrong? Oooooh, the six nations was on...

Mike brought me a side panel of a '73 Mustang, for free! Mine is actually cracked so I'm very pleased with this replacement :-) This panel came off of his old '73 mach 1 that was totalled and sold in parts. He likes the idea that a part of his Mustang now lives on in mine.

Driving Corsa's

We drove Simone's Corsa to the garage for some maintenance under warranty. We drove back in my Corsa. It was all fixed pretty quick and late arvo we did the reverse thing and picked it up.

The drive there and back took us straight through our national airport.

In between I worked, nothing exciting.

The great idea

I watched Wheeler Dealers during breakfast. IMO it's one of the best car shows on TV because they actually explain what they do to the car and why. It's not about the glamour so much as with a lot of other shows. They were bringing an old Ford Escort back to life today. Nice car!

I had to deal with some unfinished business today. This piece of the wall that still looks crap after we put the new floor in months ago. I tried to make it pretty with pieces of wood but it was all crooked and in the end it really frustrated me. When Simone came home we went to the DIY store together, my third! time today to have a look for alternatives.

Simone had this fantastic idea that not only is super easy to make, it also eliminates the flaws in the wall and it looks very good too!

Basically all we did was put two corner profiles on the wall, thus giving us a straight surface to work with, something the wall was lacking.
All we needed to do then was put on a wider piece of wood and voila!

Looking good no?
