The Dimmer is Brightened

A few years ago I replaced the turn signal stalk. This made obvious the worn condition of the left side headlight dimmer switch knob.
Using a small bottle of high-gloss black craft paint I was able to bring back a shine to the dimmer knob. The knob unscrews for easy removal and painting with an artist brush.
Now the knob is as shiny as a morning daisy in the sun. Or something.

Alignment Specs and Steering Rehab

I had the wheels aligned yesterday, after putting new tires all around. (The old ones were eight years old.) Here are the specs:
The car drives straight as an arrow now and as an added bonus the steering wheel turns easier. The techs at the alignment shop took the car for a spin when they finished, an acitivity I managed to record from the garage waiting area.
The shiny new 185/70 tires - on stock steelies - look great, too.
