Re: [DMCForum] What was I thinking? (Mostly on topic)


You're not the only one. Many people enjoy the challenge of fixing up a
car ... or a house ... or a man or woman.

My case will no doubt be similar to yours, not because I NEED a
fixer-upper, but because I don't care about perfect condition,
especially cosmetic. Sagging headliners? No problem. Cracked dashboard?
Cover it. Eyebrows on front fascia? Metal strip. Scratched stainless?
Regraining it can be done.

It doesn't have to be beautiful to be great.

And as far as minor mechanical flaws go, that's the fun part. You are
not alone.
