Sleeping beauty update

I have all her clothes off and getting ready to start all the prep work. Noticed a hole in bottom of trunk along with some cracks. Also received her new trunk turn signal lights today. Side covers had some cracks , I went ahead and reinforced those with some epoxy . I know, must use abs slurry. I have some abs sheets on the way along with abs cement. Went around town and no one had abs , so ordered it online. I even went to a specialty plumbing store and the meathead :x behind the counter said, "whats ABS, never heard of the stuff" :roll: , I quickly realized and reminded myself that I'm in a small town in Oklahoma and was not going to have any luck finding it. Thank goodness for the internet :roll: Enjoy the pics.

Also, I wonder why Honda did not make the metal bracing that fits inside the trunk , stretch all the way across the bottom. It fits 3/4 of the bottom and the remaining 1/4 that's unsupported is the section that is cracked which led to the hole. Just a thought :|

She will love the work that you are doing to her garbs. It will turn her from sleazy women to a lady of royalty, again. I hop you have fixed her exhaust by now, as I have heard that a lot of ladies do not like their exhausts to be heard :oops:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
