Okay.
And good news, I may have been fired/quit from Fazoli's 1711, but one of the old managers will hire me immediately over at 1694... he needs workers bad, and I'm fully qualified and trained in every non-Manager position. Plus even back at 1711, they need my van for a catering this Sunday...

He's an awesome guy, we'd hang out outside of work. He has a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T that we work on.

I didn't wetsand or polish my last coat yet (may sell as is), so I am curious to see the finish after polish!

And if 1694 wants you, better resign at 1711 to leave no doubt that you're done! Congrats... okay... I don't understand, but I'm happy if you're happy lol

Lol. In short, I quit/fired at the location in-town (Indirectly called a customer fat when she ordered, according to the nutrition guide, 28,000 calories).... and the old assistant manager there became a general manager in a different Fazoli's twenty miles away, and wanted to hire me. Hey, if it'll pay the loan and they can pay me enough to cover the extra gas...

Surprisingly, despite the distance, gas wouldn't be TOO bad ... $15/roundtrip in bad weather, for a 56 mile drive.


If the paint stuck, I think I'll wetsand, then add a thin coat, maybe a second one, then polish it.

Here is a p[icture of the disposeable roller/pan.




These little rollers have a fine nap.So it will make less orange peel.I used one of these to paint the doors on a dirt track race car I had.The shop I was renting at the time did not like me spaying paint.I had to get creative......

I just lost a moter on my compressor so it looks like I will be rolling on some primer.......

Well, my paint job is still "orange-peely", as I didn't do wetsand and polish to wrap it up. Cruised around town in the car to try to get some good pics for my kijiji ad, but they turned out too dark (dummy... park a black car in the shade and take a picture!) But I thought I would share a look at where I live, and maybe I'll have some better pics of the car later.
Sorry... they are 1024X768... big. I'll try to resize later.

cheers I added a better pic. More details on my CarDomain page!

I didn't say anything to her directly... I was in the kitchen, saw "5 DZ BRSTK" come on my screen, and the entire kitchen always lets out a groan at those kinds of things, because it takes so long to make... and I remarked to the girl on drive-through "jeez, that's more calories than I eat in 3 weeks", and the woman ordering heard me.

dog managed to put six nice big scratches down my door.
