Went to Thornhill Cruisers Night we had 17 SSR's. They had a Hagerty Insurance Agent there and at the end he gave an award for "Car of the Week" I was the lucky winner. That's back to back awards I won...things happen in 3's so I better pick up a lottery ticket EH!

Tonight I asked the wife what we were having for dinner. She said that we were going out. Akin's BBQ in Bell Florida. So i said well if we are going out to dinner lets make this a date and take Lil Red for a dinner ride and a sundown road trip home. Perma-grin all the way, Top down coming home .
Lil Red relieved my stress levels and made the close of the day SEPCIAL!!!

Spent about an hour or so replacing a wonky remote control mirror switch in the driver's door panel today. Posted details about the positive outcome for anyone interested on this thread (last couple of posts include photos).
Thanks to Mike In AZ for coming to the rescue!

|dano||I haven't installed these yet, just got them in today. Bought them on fleabay. The auction said "Like New". unpacked them, I don't think these were ever installed. They're in perfect condition, not a speck on them and the little spring on the rear has absolutely no corrosion. Got the set for $139.65 with free shipping. I feel kinda guilty cause I think I stole em. My R has caps without the "Bowtie". I think they're just some generic after market caps. so these will look nice.|

Here is the photo from the Penticton BC, Peach City Beach Cruise Winding Road tour. Photo taken at the Yellow Lake rest stop.
How my wife, in her sandals and dress, got back down the hillside after taking the photo is another story for another time. [emoji32]
Those that witnessed her descent are probably smiling as they read this ...
Photo credit to Sylvia!

Finished getting everything clean and shiny for the big car show next weekend.
Saturday - detailed engine compartment, interior (including waxing door jambs) and trunk. I then had enough energy to jack it up and remove the tires and wheels for cleaning. I ended up loading them into my little SUV and took them to school so I could replace the valve stems. I now have valve stems on all 4 wheels that match. (OK, maybe a little compulsive).
Sunday - cleaned wheel wells and calipers. Touched up the 3 year old paint on brake calipers and cleaned inside of wheels. Then after spraying Back to Black in wheel wells, I reinstalled wheels and applied chrome polish.
Done!! its now parked in the garage under a cover!
I was done in time Sunday to keep my date with Marie. We went to check out a possible new venue for a 2nd annual Central Ohio Summer Meet and Greet. I am so glad we went there before placing a deposit. The venue was not quite what we hoped for, but it will make for a great optional after lunch activity. Details will follow later this week after I secure lunch reservations.

Up early for Cars and Coffee in Knightdale NC. BIG turn out. (1 SSR) Check their facebook page for pics the promoter did a fly over in his airplane and took pics (may take a few days). Guess it was the best attendance yet.
Now I'm 27 miles from hitting 30,000!!!! Dog gone it, it's about worn out!

Spending the weekend getting ready ffg or a big 2 day show here in town. Over 1100 cars last year on Friday and Saturday. Today was spent with wash, clay bar, swirl remover polish with da and then 2 coats of my favorite PRO W-41 yellow wax applied and buffed by hand. Tomorrow I will try to tackle interior and engine compartment.
However after cutting the grass this evening I might be a little slower tomorrow.
