Things Done

Was toying with my roof basket fairing this week trying to come up with something to make it stand out. Finally got an idea from a friend at work, so I set out to make it happen. I laid down a coat of black on Thurday night, then sanded it and taped it off Friday after work.

While I was clear coating that I figured I should get my dash pieces cleared as well:

Let those dry over night, then got up early Saturday to put everything back together. Started by installing the dash pieces:

With those installed, I reinstalled the fairing, then lifted my basket into place:

After gauging whether I liked it or not, I decided I did and added the pinstripe to match the van, then went and grabbed a few more pics:

Then we loaded up and went in to the farmer’s market with a friend of ours. After that we dropped the kids off for a while and enjoyed the afternoon. Chilled at Wollersheim winery/distillery

Then we headed over to Vintage Brewing for supper:

After a great dinner, we went for a walk on the River trail, then headed home to pick up the kids.

Had a lazy day yesterday, just did some quick grocery shopping and watched some movies.

All in all, a great weekend.

Now I just have to get my new snorkel modified so I can get that on and she’s all done outside until I can find some sliders.
