2nd coat of ceramic today. Original coat was done about 14 months ago. So did a maintenance coat today. Pics do zero justice! She glows!!!

I bought these badges after I bought my ’02 a couple of years ago.
I never put them on because they looked too big.
I don’t mind adding badges in certain cases, as long as they are relevant, blend in, and don’t make the car look like a ghetto wagon.
Since it has been raining down here for what seems like forever, I was fooling around in the garage and came across them.
I stuck one on the driver’s side.
I don’t have enough room in my garage to stand back a ways and see how it really looks.
I’ll leave it on and look at it when it stops raining and I can get the car outside.

I used my Continental to take care of a couple of errands this past Tuesday.
I went to start the car Wednesday afternoon – no start – it cranked over but would not fire up.
Being old and lazy, I had AAA take it to my mechanic.

He found it had 6-7 psi fuel pressure - a bad fuel pump.
He dropped the tank and replaced the fuel pump/sending unit, and a new fuel filter.
Bank account is now reduced by $415.

Assuming the pump was the original pump, it lasted 83000 miles – 20 years.

Thinking back over the years, of all the cars I've owned – some new and some older – and some almost qualifying as junkers – this is the first time that I've had a fuel pump go bad.

The only good thing I can say, it was quite considerate of the old pump to quit while sitting in my garage, not out in the middle of nowhere.
