The Man I Married:
bought us a 1986 Volvo last year (after I totalled our "new car"...), to save us money.
Well, the headliner recently started disintegrating. There were little orange crumbs of "ceiling" all over the car and all over our heads. Constantly. Like alien-orange-crumbly-dandruff in our hair and on our shoulders...all the time.
Sooooo... The Man I Married decided he would fix this problem and rip out the headliner himself:
Rather than bother with locating the ever-elusive pair of goggles (to avoid getting the orange dandruff in his eyes), The Man I Married decided that Saran Wrap works just as well:
The Man I Married then proceeded to open a can of "Prairie" (tan) colored interior house paint and paint the headliner to match the "Prairie" (tan) colored leather interior of our 1986 Volvo - to save us money. His wife (that would be ME) was not pleased upon hearing this "paint the inside of our 1986 Volvo" idea...but you know what? It looks pretty darn good! And after a few days, the paint smell kind of faded a little, too. And really, who looks up when they get into a car, anyways? (Not me. I have developed a fear of orange dandruff falling into my eyes.)
3 days after Project Headliner was complete (saving us $120), The Man I Married discovered that our 1986 Volvo would need a new wiring harness. And it would cost $800 to get a new one installed.
Gee, I love that man. :) Isn't he great?
