there's a lot more people camping on the Lake shore late Saturday afternoon than there was Saturday morning
A beautiful sunny day today, 75° a few fluffy white clouds in the sky and no wind, throw in a 10% humidity and it just doesn't get any better than that.
I hardwired my camera monitor into the truck this morning. I had been just plugging it into a cigarette lighter plug just to test it but now that I've screwed it into its permanent position I'm happy to get rid of the temporary plug hanging down off my dashboard.
Wiring it up was an easy job. Like a lot of trucks there's a fuse box on the end of the dashboard that you can access when you open the drivers door. So I just tapped into a hot wire at the fuse box, and grounded it in the same area. I hid the wire from the monitor where the windshield and the dashboard come together so the installation looks pretty clean.
I worked on the motorcycle seat for a little bit. I glued the foam seat cover that I made to the seat that I've been sitting on. And I use the term seat loosely, it was more like a slightly rounded 2 x 4.... except harder. Now that its glued in place, after it dries I can do the final shaping of the foam, and then cover it with some black Naugahyde I bought a while back. I figure this motorcycle seat modification would've been an easy weekend project for an average person, but due to my ambition and unique skills I figure on having the seat completed and ready to ride in under three months.
my motorcycle seat project is moving right along. I've glued it down and rubber bands are holding it all together until the glue dries. behind it is the Naugahyde that I will cover the whole thing with.
