Thanks guys!

Art, from what I know, that ship used to be a whaling ship that was used in one of the wars as a troop carrier (or vice versa) and eventually ran aground there. It was originally thought to be the SS Sposa, but recent explorations show that the sposa, along with other ships are sunken underneath this one. CBC had a documentary on it on Land and Sea last year. I'm on my phone right now so I can't look that up.

I can't seem to find the episode about the shipwrecks, but I did find an article from the local paper. Still looking for the video.

New answers about sunken ships - Local - The Telegram


EDIT:

Found the episode:

http://www.cbc.ca/landandseanl/2014/...-the-deep.html

The story of this shipwreck starts at 8:00. The whole episode is very interesting though. Well worth the watch.

Picked up some new to me wheels last week. Came off a 2002 base model Mustang. I'm quite content with them. Was originally going to polish them, but I think I'll paint them gunmetal gray.

Also got my magnaflow muffler on. The tip is just clamped on for now. It will be welded soon.

Thanks guys!

I had my phone in the windshield mount, stuck on the back of the bumper haha. I was paranoid it was going to fall off, but amazingly it stuck.

I haven't waxed it yet. Only washed it at the coin wash. It started raining when I got home so I didn't get a chance to wax it. The last time I washed it, two weeks ago, I used the armorall wash and wax. Its a very good quality wash and wax. Almost felt like I used a hardshell wax with just the wash. The shine seems to have stayed.

That is very interesting Travis that you use ArmorAll Wash & Wax. Do u buy that at Can Tire? I want to try that stuff based oh how shiny your car looks!
I have for years been using Armorall Concentrate and it removes grime with a shine LOL...

I think I will try to find that Wash & Wax like tomorrow! And Might even try mixing them together!!
