Why not throw the stinky crap out and buy good paint?

Interesting you asked. I got a call from a nearby PD informing me it had been found. I picked it up last night and was amazed that it was in the same condition as when it was stolen. The thieves even went through the effort of locking it.

It had been quite a ride since last Saturday. I bought a decent 96' Dodge Caravan from a friend that was ready to donate it to make room for another car for his son. As it turns out, I had two sets of wheels to start with, one set after Saturday, now I have three!

It actually worked out well because now I can do the cosmetic repairs to the Civic that I've been wanting to do, and still have transportation.

Frankly, this mini van is a little more practical for me than the civic. But, my daughter is thrilled to have it back!

Thanks for mentioning it Bill.

Don't tell me. The third vehicle is a 23 window VW Van isn't it. With a peace sign on the front.

Good to hear. My understanding is that the front seats in the Civic hatchbacks often get ripped out because they're incredibly comfy. Guys with trucks apparently buy them and replace the factory ones in their trucks with these.

Caravan's are nice. I'm on my second one as they do have a tendency to lose the transmission. First stop I made with both was to the dump. Pulled the back seats and pitched them. I'm loving the one I've got now as it has the rear side doors on both sides for easy access to all my painting crap.

Here I am one year later with the same five, and the same pinkish goo. I'm like, Eff this, I need the paint now! So I carefully pour off the goo, and replace with five parts water to one part of Clorox. Approximately, a six ounce mixture to roughly one and a half gallons of paint. Plus, a dash of vanilla extract.

Now, my house smells like someone decided to bake pasteries in an Eboli decon facility after an apocalyptic outbreak.

And to add more drama to a bleak weekend, my car was stolen in front of my house at 1O AM! I have video but can't share it due to an ongoing investigation.

My eyes are actually tearing up from the Clorox gassing off. Or perhaps, it's because I loved that little Honda of mine.
To get rid of the Clorox bleach odor, I would consider renting an ozone generator. I would do a little research on it first in case that using ozone to remove chlorine is a bad thing to do.

The smell has long since dissipated. Actually, over night. I probably exaggerated the circumstances a little, but that's what great writers do.

It kept us entertained. You're like a regular Henry David Thoreau!

Oh wait. Jack Kerouac for you.
