Default The Reports of my Death are Greatly Exaggerated (56k Beware)

Hey all,

Just to recap, I've been extremely busy (understatement) the past few weeks. I've resisted the urge to login to the BC because I know it would mean my entire evening would be spent on the computer.

I could only stay away so long....
But before I came back, I had to clean up Knight Fire, since I believe my last posting of her was with that horrible salt... hehe.

I'm not allowed to "wash" the car in the new heated underground garage, but it said nothing in the lease agreement about "waxing" the car. I ran her thru a touchless car wash and then used those Armor-All Car Wash Wipes (10per pack) to get the heavy stuff off. Then dry, then began the wax.

So after the 3 phases of Mothers wax... here she is....















For the brave (highspeed), here are two movies I took....
(Right click and "Save Target As...")
http://rubix.ca/Bonnie/97SSEi/Images...w/mvi_4079.avi (10mb)
http://rubix.ca/Bonnie/97SSEi/Images...w/mvi_4082.avi (17mb)
I tried to use Adobe Premiere 6 to shrink them down, but it won't open them, anyone with any suggestions what AVI (video) editor to use please PM me.

The rims back on this early.....ha... last year it was still snowing here up until the first week of May. The winter rims/tires will probably come off in late March or April.

I'm trying to find a place to chrome them, but it'* not going too well. Nobody east of Quebec does it (that'* what I hear anyways).
