You gotta wonder what the planets are aligned like at this moment. I just pulled the ashtray out of my 1967 MGB GT cool ride and started to restore the stupid cancer causing piece of crap. Officially this was, being very British, a cigar ash holder or some other bullshit like that. In MG’s they are not cigarette lighters but… cigar lighters. Very proper.
Anyway, why should I clean up this stupid piece of metal rather than chucking it in the recycling bin? I’ll tell you why! Firstly, if I chuck the piece of junk it will leave a large hole in the carpeted area that would have to be filled in. Secondly, it’s a very cool place to keep the itsy bitsy MGB car key and spare change. As a bonus, when I’m in Washington or Oregon marijuana is legal, might need the “cigar ash disposal unit” some day!
A few hours of prep, polishing, painting. I’ll have the coolest cigar ash MGB holder on the block.
