Just to PROVE to all of you that doubted I'd actually DRIVE my new car....I drove it into work today in the wetish sprinkles!

I figure it'll rain at Carlisle anyway - - - so rain doesn't freak me out too much....well, maybe just a little. *wink*

I can tell you this: At 100 mph, the sand starts to exit the heater vents.

I'll try to snag a digital camera tomorrow for finished exterior photos.

Well done Paul - looked at the pics, she looks

lovely. What do you mean about the sand? Did you

have the front end sand blasted? I did that on my

old Tii and 5 years later I was still getting sand

through the vent tubes - but you're probably talking

about something completely different!

Cheers, Nick

The entire front of the car from the windshield forward was taken to bare metal. I did the sand blasting personally while Matt cracked the whip! Took me 6 hours to get it done. The sand is far LESS than I expected though....I thought it would be EVERYWHERE, but it just seeps out ever so slightly at high speed....and I never drive at high speed, naturally.(heh!)

Besides....the 02 has better heat than my 6 series still!

How else will you ever get the sand out, right?

Congratulations. I showed one of the pictures you posted to my wife last night and she said "The paint looks really shiny." Coming from her about a car, that is truly a compliment (I get "Can you open the garage door? Your car smells bad again.").

...though her opinions on "cars as transport only" will surely change when her MINI / CS arrives in June.

The only other car she lusts after is a nice ole Karmann Ghia....and they're too dangerous, too slow, and don't stop or handle well enough to put up with the R U S T!

Swing by next time you're in the city!
