August 30th - A good bit more done since these pics were taken..

But here is what I could catch with my phones camera..

It looks like I might not make it with a detailed engine bay, but everything else will be done.. :) May find time to do the engine too..

Down to carpet, windshields, mounting one the passenger seat, install the visors and getting it back to the body guy to wet sand and touchup.

Charles, could you please post your photos as .jpeg's versus .pdf's? The .pdf's are 2 MB or so apiece, and take quite a long time to load, even over my high speed connection. A similar .jpeg would be under 100 kB, and take about a second to load. That also saves some drive space and bandwidth for Gary.

TIA

Actually.. the 2MG files are about 24 pictures each... thats why I do PDF. Easier to format and such. at 300K a pic... thats almost 6 MG

Planned on posting them in my gallery though.

Help!

I was googling for a photo of the Opel I bought for $50 in 1985. I happened upon your photo of 1971 Kadett. That was my car! I was 18 and had no idea what I was driving. I never took a picture of it. The reason I was searching for the photo is that I want to document my time w/this car.

If anyone can help me find printable photo (i.e., 4x6 at 300 ppi) please email me! Thanks!

Yeah, but 2-door or 4-door?

. . . but was it a 4-door like Charles'? . . . pretty rare one, most were 2-door Kadetts . . .

. . . how about this one, my '69 Kadett LS

Wow.. 13 years I have had MaryAnn 2.0 - I think thats the longest I have had any car other than Bens Manta and both need a refresh for different reasons.
