Blemishes

5 posts in this topic

None of my MCs are show-stoppers. Each one has "blemishes" ... scratches, dents, dings, "beauty" parts missing, etc. ... and I don't claim to keep them 100% spic'n'span clean like I should. But ... each time a new "blemish" pops up ... a little part of me cringes....

Thursday of this week, a new "blemish" for the '87 MC LS "appeared". Somewhere between home and work, the passenger-side front wheel "hubcap" came off ... the one seen in this pic:

In a way, I feel lucky that I managed to go from October until May without losing any wheel covers, given the rough roads I travel between Elgin and Schaumburg. Still ... somehow, that doesn't make me feel much better ... heh.

*sighs*

Luckily, I have a spare cap, which I will put on at some future date, and the '87 MC LS will look more "whole" again sometime soon.... But, now I want to get a whole set ... "just in case" ;).

Sssooo...anyone else find themselves frustratingly disappointed by "blemishes"?

Hey knightfan26917, here is a present for you! 1970 baby! This is an official GM pic, see the GM logo on the bottom right? I don't know what they used this for. :smilewide:

Blemishes.. I know them well. As I ranted about months ago... My Millenia somehow got some scratches and dings over the winter. I especially cringe about the dings, because the body was formerly 100% ding and dent free. Now it's not. Argh. The scratches... eh.. whats a few more? My paint is far from perfect anyways. Otherwise, there is some rust on the right fender and a small crack on the front bumper.

As far as the wheels... I experienced losing a center cap... I just removed the other three and it looks better without them anyways. :P
