A few months ago, while I was sleeping soundly in my apartment above, some thieves had the gall to ransack my poor, dear, Honda Fit and remove its rear wheels. SIGH! They had attempted to get all the wheels but only managed to get two before someone spooked them off. Fast forward a bit after GEICO refused to pay for damages because of this stupid New York State law I wasn’t privy to, I’m now stuck with a semi-ugly car. I still love her though.
As things calm down a bit with what I want to do with my office and other apartment-related stuff- it’s probably about time I try and quantify what it is I need to get fixed on my baby.
- 2 New chrome wheels to replace the temporary ones
- Fix the molding that was broken by the thieves and their stupid jack
- Fix the puncture hole I made from slowly rolling into a truck’s hitch
- Paint touch ups
- Try and fix the dent caused by the ceiling panel falling on my car. (grr)
- Repair the rust spots and dings on back bumper from when I backed into the Taurus and the basketball hoop back from whenever I still lived at home (we had too many cars in the driveway that day!)
- Get a back seat cover so Izzie’s flying fur stays under control
- Get a seatbelt harness for Izzie so I don’t have to cram her kennel in the trunk and I can actually use the trunk for luggage
Okay, so the last two aren’t fixes but they are things I want to do to get my car back into peak condition! 🙂
Last week Adam showed me a new site called DentBetty.com and it looks so promising! Unfortunately, it is so damn new that no one from my area in New York (or anywhere I’d be willing to go) has entered their body shop in the database yet so I can’t really compare quotes.
Oh well, I guess I’ll just work on getting the wheels fixed and pimping it out so Izzie can ride in style. 😉
