31b/365: weekend addendum

January 31st, 2011 in Daily

Noticed that my car is looking pretty gnarly after the ash and snow combination from mountain roads between Ebino Plateau, Shinmoedake and Sakurajima this weekend.

The ashy windshield is actually a pretty regular sight in the winter thanks to Sakurajima. I have no hope of this car’s clear coat ever being salvaged. For being a 15 year old car, I’m surprised it’s lasted as long as it has. Everything, that is. It still runs amazing with fresh fluids, but I’d love to have the engine torn down and resealed. Needs some TLC.

That said, if I let the paint go a few more days, I should have a brand new “afterburner fade” look, free of charge!
