Update on the Nitro Passenger Side Handle

I drove around with the handle for a few weeks and it just seemed too plain to me. Elaine even said that, too. The Nitro is beautiful vehicle and I want everything to look first rate, so I stripped it and re-did it. The materials: New Krylon dark grey spray paint, a gray vinyl remnant from Joanne Fabric, and silver striping tape from Autozone.

Looks much better now, doesn't it? Even Elaine said it looks one hundred times better than my first try.

Detailing the Nitro

Elaine was out of town for a workshop, so I had two nights by myself and decided to detail the Nitro. Both nights, I started at six and ended about nine thirty. I used all these products that you see here.

First, I washed the Nitro. Next, I used a cleaner to get off the old wax and oxidation. Next, I used polish to bring out the showroom shine. Lastly, I used NuFinish to seal and protect. A lot of work, exhausting actually, but worth it. Here it is glistening and gleaming in the morning sunlight.

Very Nice Saturday

First, the weather was in the seventy's and after being cooped up all cold winter, this was great. Next, Brian and I went to see Watchmen, which is a movie based on the comic book. Brian had read the comic book and wanted to see it. I just thought it looked interesting. It was.

Next, Elaine and Ryan joined us at the Olive Garden for a lovely dinner. Last, we all went shopping at Sam's Club. A very nice Saturday with the promise of spring upcoming.
