Why I cant have nice things

I decided to walk uptown last night since I knew the cops would be watching the bars pretty close. It was just starting to sprinkle on my drunken walk home and when I got up this morning the rain gauge read 3 and a quarter inches. I walked up to the parade at 11 to help throw out candy and plastic footballs for my sis' float and then hung out and played bingo all afternoon. When I made it home I decided I would hop in the dodge and head out somewhere. I can't remember for what for sure but thats when I noticed the rain gauge in my floorboards read a half inch. Not good. I have just spent the last four hours uninstalling the seats and carpet and drying them out with box fans. I did decide it was a good time to do some detailing though so at least it wasn't all a wash.

Sounds like a soak and wash to me!

Kind of young for hanging out at bingo halls arn't you?

Did you leave in time for the supper buffet?

J/k good luck with the detailing ,it always feels better when your done.

I think I would try to find the leak before drying it out. Grab a garden hose and see if you can find where it is getting in.

Well... I would like to say it was because of a leak but... I left the windows down.

But hey, I made up for it. I spent my afternoon detailing the whole car. It is now cleaner than when I bought it and probably cleaner than it will ever be again. I bought some chrome handles, caliper paint and window tint so next weekend will be busy too. I will post some pics when I get it finished.
