This is… 2 days of work since my last update? Something like 2 days. Maybe a day and a half. I’m honestly amazed at the speed Carmers is working on Sharka.
The driver’s side was definitely the ugly one.
My 97 crunchy fender is no longer crunchy. It is now smooth and lovely. And they went on about how it really wasn’t that much work. Like 20 minutes or something ridiculous.
The black art of bodywork amazes me.
I remember the first Miata I ever looked at back in 2000. I saw the wavy lower door and thought it had been in a wreck and badly repaired. Then I saw the other side and scratched my head. And then… I saw every other NA was the same.
As I mentioned in another blog, 80% of Sharka’s rock guard will be going away. The stuff below the door will remain, but the guard below the belt line will be removed. Er, is removed. No longer there. Yay!
And then there’s the back fender.
Sweet 8 lb 4oz baby Jesus. That is lovely. Music for the eyes. All sorts of descriptions. Having my bad fender pull gone? So happy.
Much words. Such bodywork. Wow.
Yeah. That’s the good stuff. I love progress.
This was being worked on when I stopped by the shop. They said it might get glued on and left to cure. Since it was a Friday afternoon… I kinda doubt it. But we’ll see what happens when I stop Monday.
I is excited. Wish I had more intelligent commentary to provide.
I should put inspirational quotes throughout my next update…
