Yep. Used my wagon alot today. Kayaks, dead logs and bags of leaves and brush, and a few hundo added to the odometer.....


Hauled 6 of us up to my sisters lakeside cabin for a day of fun and hard work. Also bit over 20mpg on the first real trip with the cats gone. Good weekend for sure!

I helped my son move into his new house today. Car was crammed from the footwells to the headliner with boxes (My daughter-in-law figures I would excel at Tetris). plus a 12' utility trailer behind loaded with the big stuff like the fridge and beds, etc. It's amazing how much stuff one can haul with one of these cars.

Also, get some Xylene (near the paint thinner at Home Depot or the like) and it'll get that tape off there. A plastic putty knife will make the job quicker, too.

Bill,are you referring to the tape residue on Pete's wagon?Will the Xylene harm the paint al all.Never used anything but acetone in the past with very little effect until a long soak!

Chris (brokecello) turned me on to that. He used it when he was detailing. I've never had it harm paint, and it just wipes away any and all residue and yuck that I've thrown it at. Wink

Yeah. I stripped the moldings last Sunday when it started to rain. Haven't had a chance to get the tape off. I have an eraser wheel and some adhesive remover. I'll get it this week. The wheels are Salt Flats. 17x8 and 17x9 1/2. Tires are 255-50 and 275-50 Nitto. I'm a firm believer in filling wheel wells front to back and top to bottom.

I got all the sticky goop off all but the tailgate Tues evening. The gate is rusted where moisture was trapped under the molding. I'll have that fixed and painted soon.

I dig those wheels! I think the color would compliment the gray cladding on my OCC too.
