Sevenling ( I Painted )

Sevenling ( I Painted )

I painted my ’08 Gran Vitara nine months ago,
& I gave it its first official wash
three days ago.

We drove to the ocean this week;
it beamed fire engine red on the beach
as I snapped three photos of it,

before noticing the newly peeled paint above the windshield.

As for me, coral red is the most attractive color in the world. It fills the mind with actions and emotions.

I too love the red color but when it peels off, its frustrating to fix it ~ Hope you are well Glenn ~

Oh my...what a terrible way to ruin a day! Getting a paint job soon?

Let's just think it peeled after a good cause... it can always be re-painted anyway though it means some more spending to make. :)

Oh dear, nothing worse than paint peeling off our car. Brilliant sevenling.
