SX4 Drifter Stitch Bumper Repair. Well it’s done! I have street cred. now. In true Drifter fashion I have repaired the bumper skin. (The same bumper skin that was damaged by a DRIFT. A snow drift.)
It looks great! any drifter would be happy with the outcome. I even used materials that were similar in colour so it doesn’t stand out too much.

Cotton Candy Cutters. Lots of them seen today heading to the fields to cut the cotton candy. We didn’t see any on the way to get the new car. Just on the way home. (I think they just got out of church.) The time was perfect to harvest and the fields of cotton candy couldn’t have been riper. Perfect!
My buddy Chris went to get the car with me. It was nice to catch up on the way there.
