Undressing Trio

Trying to get a corner lifted...

Since we moved our weekend home from Malaysia, I had been thinking about selling Trio. I bought her when we really needed car transportation, carrying our stuff between home and Sebana. Now, we still do use her for weekend transportation between home and Keppel, and we still do carry plenty of stuff to sort of feel like we need to keep her around.

Back to the factory state again.

.. but then, not really because the public transport between home and Keppel is really not difficult. Sure we couldnt carry as much as we did before, and on days that we have more stuff to bring, we could get a cab. Its way cheaper than keeping a car around in Singapore that is so rarely used.

A little Trio soveneir and Trio touch up pens. ...

Okay, so the decision is made and Trio is sold. .. for a very good price. It so happen that I bought her when demand for cars was low, and sold her when demand is high… my lucky day. Taking off depreciation, I lose nothing at all. We got such good use out of her. … Hope she finds a new owner that will use her well and treat her nicely… <sob><sob> … I do feel a little attached… 

Painted with Trio touch up paint... Looks more like it..

Sigh… removing the flower decals is like undressing Trio. She will no longer be dressed in my family colors.. … This is a little tough on my nails. The vinyl stuck on well for all these years. A little edge at a time, and then got enough to lift. It took an hour for both of us to get it all off, and then to remove remnant adhesive with a little lighter fluid and rag. No worries, the lighter fluid does not hurt the paintwork, unless paintwork is so old that its falling apart anyway.

Ah... the finishing touch! Trio is back!

Else use car wax to do the same, but its harder.

Okay. Now what… back home and painting my little Trio… look, we are moving away from Singapore eventually and we could not bring Trio with us, but little Trio no problem.
