I hated to do it…I put it off all week but it had to be done. It made me sad ….even though it was a beautiful day (my mood is weather dependent). I had to put ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ in storage. I will miss seeing her cute little bod, right outside my window….all winter. But I know she will be safe from any snow loads, heavy winds and rain, so I will adjust.
There was just not enough time this summer to get her exterior work done….I was just getting started when it got cold. I was able to remove some of her metal edging and re putty under them, polish them and put them back on. I didn’t get done but polishing the aluminum strips really spiffed her up….can’t wait to do it all this Spring. I have debated about painting and decided to leave the basic body off white and just do the stripe…..in a medium teal green. Having to store her this winter is costing a pretty penny, so she is going to have to wear her old dress…all polished up.
Can you tell where I polished a little, on the bottom right of the window frame? I also removed the emblem and the # and polished them. The lower outside metal strip has new putty and a bit of polish.
Maybe the outside will go better with the interior, come Spring.
