Gort, Klaatu Barada Nikto

Gort stopped by our house tonight. He is eight feet tall and wanted me to do some woodwork and chrome job on him, as he was looking at my last couple of posts.

Seriously, Aaron sent me Gort for a birthday present. Gort is the robot from the famous 1950s science fiction movie, The Day the Earth Stood Still. Thank you, Aaron.

Marshall's Birthday Present

Notice anything different about the Nitro? Elaine bought me the chrome mirrors and door handles and I put them on last night. Elaine and I think they really standout and make the Nitro look sharp.

Dodge Nitro Woodworking Project

I really like my Nitro. It looks sharp and is very comfortable. The only downside of a big SUV is that Elaine struggles to climb up and in the passenger side. I looked for a passenger side handle all over the internet and called Dodge, but no one seemed to have one.


Someone on the Dodge Nitro forum built his passenger handle out of wood and put his plans up on the forum, so I copied those.


It took a few hours on Saturday and Sunday to do the woodworking. Last night, I spray it with a couple of coats of primer and a couple of coats of Krylon Fusion. I like this paint, it gives it a plastic coated look and feel. I let it dry overnight.


I installed the passenger handle this morning. Not a fine craftsman, but not bad, if I do say so myself.

Elaine and I at Quaker Steak and Lube

Saturday was warm and Elaine and I went shopping in Canton. First stop was the Quaker Steak and Lube for lunch. Very interesting place, Elaine said that it reminded her of something at Disney World. I always thought (no lie) that you got your car serviced and get something to eat while you are waiting. I told this to Elaine and she made a hair color moment remark about me.
