I feel you on the snow thing.

I was supposed to be starting a new job a month or so ago doing marketing for a company that specializes in outfitting government vehicles. Everything from police cars to snow plows. Lights, plows, dump beds, salt spreaders. 70% of their earnings come in the winter when snow falls, and they build new plows and service old ones. We have gotten next to nothing as far as snow goes, so they are past the red zone for profits, and have had to lay off people instead of hiring new ones.

That would have been a VERY well paying job for me, and gotten me out of the place i work now, which hasn't given me a raise since i started working there, and gives me no benefits.

I thought I had it bad. That really sucks. Hope you can find another job like that soon.

BTW. Nice Fiat. How do you like it? If I was married, I'd buy my wife one of those just so I could drive it once in a while. lol

Here we go again. lol.

I attacked the front grill yesterday and here are the results.

Before:



First cut to help with fitting the new grill material.



I don't really know what the purpose of this is but it had to be cut off. I also painted this area around the hood latch black so it wouldn't stand out so much from behind the grill.




Fitting the new grill.



After cutting out the remaining plastic.



Glued on and painted.



Installed.






And some final shots of the car. Sorry I haven't gotten a good picture of the rear but I've been unable to keep the car clean with all the salt and slush that's on the roads right now.
