This May I acquired new Summer toy – I call her blackpearl. If interest, I could share some photos of her being restored to even better condition. Although this isn’t any project level car in the beginning to start with. But there’s always some niggles to fix in the 20+ years old car.

First thing to fix was the center armrest cup holders, the usual suspects.
[I forgot to take a photo to show how it looked]

Disassembled it, cleaned and conditioned the leather.

Glued together the plastic pieces in the locking mechanism and laminated carbon fiber to backside to strengthen it.

Neat repair. We do refer to carbon fibre as knitting as it resembles a grandma's woolly hobby.

Last Saturday blackpearl gave a ride to 8-years old car enthusiast. It was worthwhile to see his face when we were cruising and took a look under the bonnet after the ride. Happy to help 👍

Summer evening is so hot that I need to take blackpearl for a ride and have ice cream. I think I deserved it, cleaning and polishing is sweaty job 😅

Today was d…n hot day, so we sat into Jag with missus (not so trivial thing one might expect 🙄) and drove away for a swim
