At the Body Shop

...not Ralph Spoilsport's new-used Body Shop, thank goodness. On the way to work this morning, I stopped at the GM dealership's body shop to discuss repairing the broken rear door latch and also have them install the rear door weatherstripping that I'd purchased but decided not to install on account of not having the tools or time to undertake removal of the old strip. These issues are not critical, but need to be fixed. We arranged for me to bring the van in on Friday morning (they open at 7 AM) and that I'll work from home Friday and Monday to give them time to do something about it. He anticipates that GM doesn't manufacture the part anymore and, if it is indeed broken -- nobody will be able to tell until they remove the inside door panel to have a look at the mechanism -- he'll have to try and get it from a recycler. Fingers crossed that this isn't excessively difficult.

On second though, maybe I could use some help from Ralph Spoilsport. This current body is showing some miles on it. I won't be at BASFA tonight, on account of needing to go home and get to bed early.

Edit, 19:00: Put in the link to Ralph Spoilsport's web site.
