Getting things done!

I'm finally starting to make some progress on the job list. I managed to get off work a bit early on both Saturday and Sunday, and today it was a nice day and it's still light out at 8:45PM. So I did some more work on Sherman, and had a late supper.

Saturday I got the inverter installed, and Sunday I started re-polishing the passenger side of Sherman. I've done it once before, so it's not too big of a job to bring up the shine, but it's still a lot of work. Today, I did another bit. If I try and do a little each day, it will be done in a week or so. Now I just have to remind myself to do a little each day!

And, I had bought a can of spray paint to touch up the trim that covers the seam over the rear caps. They were nasty looking, and had been stained with mold over the years. Nothing I tried would clean them, and besides the fact that I couldn't seem to find direct replacements, they would have been a pain to change.  I used to be an automotive painter in another lifetime, so I reminded myself of that and proceeded to remove all the old sealant and resealed the seams. Then I masked and sprayed the moulding itself.

(actually, I forgot to take a "before" picture! This is the moulding from the opposite side!)
