21 years and time for a face lift.

I had this section of paint for the past few years that started to crack and pull away from the metal. So yesterday I decided to pick the scab and see what's going on. Nothing serious, just some surface rust but it's time to get fixed. One of these days i'll pull the fender off and get it painted.

Not bad since it's been 21 years since painted.

I almost forgot where this website was... But then my spidey senses said Glenn was talking about me.
