1. Tried to finish washing, polishing, and sealing the car after getting rained off on sunday while half way through- been too damp/cold to do it since, so she's STILL only half dressed. Weather has prevented me from completing the task again.


2. Began to identify all chips/cracks/defects in the bodywork prior to a careful touch-up session.
