New Top and Cleanup Day
David: I'll watch for you on the roads out this way! Would love to connect to see how you've found getting service and support in this area.
I picked up the Spider late Thursday with the new top--they did an outstanding job and the difference in wind noise and appearance was dramatic. I knew I needed a new top when I purchased, and am glad I got it done now. With a sunny, near 60 degree day, it was finally time to clean the Spider inside and out. I had not cleaned the car since it arrived from CA at the end of October, and was stunned at how dirty the interior really was. On the outside, much washing and twice as much time drying--its amazing how many crevices and spots on every edge can collect water. After drying as throughly as possible, I let the car air dry in the sun and breeze, then went back over all the problem areas one last time.
No wax today--the water beaded up well, and it was time to get in a drive before putting the cover back on waiting for another warm day! A couple of photos below:
