Default Another little meet in Minnesota (18 pics inside)

Barry made the trek up to Sauk Centre today for the replacement sunroof glass, and being that my car and my sisters were half clean I decided to drag Barry and his pristine 99 SSE back to the park where Travis and I had done a photo shoot last week.
* When I say Barry'* car is pristine I mean it is probably one of the cleanest Bonneville'* on this site. I never knew that the champagne (Sorry Barry, I already forgot the color you told me) could be so rich in color.
I had just taken a California duster to my car before Barry arrived so it was looking pretty dang good, but I feel for my sister. Although it wasn't severely dirty, the torque-stars are showing some dirt/dust as it'* been almost 2 months since last cleaned them, and I didn't forewarn her that I wanted to do a photo-shoot. Still, the car looks very clean. I did make it up to her by taking it to the do-it-yourself wash, chamoised it dry, and then applied a good coating of Mequiars 'GRAPE' tire gel to her tires and polished the rims, but she was in a hurry to take off so I didn't get any more pics. But this all happened after Barry headed home.
I then went and polished my car again, thoroughly.

Here'* my car after the polish with some of the good long lasting tire gel.










The ugly side of my car.

not bad, only thing is that emblem on the Green SSEi....... I dunno if that fits with the overall scheme? looks a lot newer for the model, or maybe it'* not centered quite right. Photos are top notch though, lovin' that spoilerless SSEi

I have to agree. I used 3M adhesive promoter and 3M double faced tape. I smeared the adhesive promoter on, and guessed where the badge should go (was absolutely no evidence of badges prior to them as I had C.L.E.A.N.E.D. it good), and once I put the first one on..... that'* where it STUCK....... I'd like to see someone take it off w/out breaking it.
Naturally, the other one had to go in the same location on the other door.... kinda bummed me to do so, but had to keep a uniform look.
They should sit forward about 2 inches really though. They'd really look nice then.

Heat gun and some fishing line.... heat it up have someone saw through the fishing line while you gently pull the badge.

Looking at the badges on Barry'* and my sisters cars..... does it look like the SSE badge on Barry'* car is closer to the lower door moulding than the SSEi badge on my sisters car?

because the SIZE of the SSE and the SSEi badges are totally different. The SSE Badge is Much larger than the SSEi
