I don’t have any text to go with this, but the pictures tell the story anyway. I wrote yesterday on my wheel repair issues and mentioned an article one of my fellow Tasmanian Saab freaks had put together on repairing and painting your wheels.
I thought I’d post these pics as further evidence of Drew’s expertise in the DIY car fix-up bizzo. Basically, if Drew’s fixing something then it’s usually getting fixed to factory standard or better. He’s quite uncompromising, and there’s a few panel shops around town that can attest to that 😉
Anyway, Drew acquired an old Saab 95 Wagon earlier this year, from another Saab Car Club member who was moving interstate. The wagon, which I’d love to nickname “the banana boat” by the way, was in sound overall condition, but could benefit from a little TLC here and there.
One such spot was on the dash. Luckily, Drew was able to source a never-used dash pad from another club member here in Tassie (and when you realise (a) how small Tassie is and (b) the fact that there’s only two 95’s in all of Australia, then you know how much of understatement ‘Luckily’ is). Here are the pics of the 3 main stages of the repair. Whilst the top pad was off, it made sense to attend to other minor matters, hence the dog’s breakfast in pic 2.
Again, I’d commend Drew’s wheel repair article to anyone considering a DIY wheel repair job. See the wheel post below (entitled “Six scuff-free inches”).
The pics, which are all enlargeable:
