Filled the trunk with food, dog food, and other crap from Walmart. Took the long way there and back. Emptied out the trunk when I got home.

Needs a bath, but will be covered in pollen in 20 minutes.

Dropped her off at the body shop... some guy side swiped me in a parking lot the first day I got her. Luckily I saw it happen and am getting my entire front bumper repainted on their dime.

Yesterday, I touched up some paint chips on both outside door handles... again.

Last week I got the front fascia repaired from a kamikaze raccoon incident and new SAP grilles installed.

Jesus. . . we got like an inch at best. Southern California here and rain in may, its just not natural. All my Lovells stuff just arrived, but its still raining. I'm taking the goat to get a second exhaust hanger welded in since I am switching to the 05/06 setup this weekend. If I am lucky I will get to install Lovells tomorrow.
