I apologize..

Hello everyone, 
I apologise, this data challenge is unbelievable!!
You would think, someone could offer a simple way to collect data. (pics or vids)
Organize it. (Make vids)
Then store it off (cloud)
The problem is... The cloud is designed to (my understanding) maintain all your data between devices.. This is very cool, however.. When your collecting 100's of times more data than your device will hold it must be deleted. OR stored.
I have been fighting the idea of external storage however I believe it will be the only option. Unfortunatly   Packing around a laptop to organize will be required:/

None the less:)

I have time lapse of the fiberglass and when i get this storage addressed tomorrow I will spend some additional time to get them on line:)

I like the voice over !! Looking forward to building some kick ass Video's:)

So here is the progress.
This is what it looked like last time i put on a pic..
Added fiberglass lol

This pic was taken right before my Son pulled up..

Now this thing should have been done a couple days ago, If you recall I was waiting for resin, 
Not a big deal but it was damaged during shipping.
Just recieved today, so in morning like 3:30 ish I will be out installing the last of the fiberglass:)
You may notice its off the bike table?
Yes, My heavy duty clutch parts have arrived:)!
So tomorrow after fiberglass and shower, jumping on bike to pick them up..
My closest dealer is Tricities so will also be stopping at Harbor Freight for gloves and chip brushes lol
Then perhaps installing the clutch :)
If your curious? NOPE, never done one before.. Im going to film it so hope it goes good ?:)



Well back to the data situation.. I do believe Its handled, just been testing all the moving parts to see how they communicate. 
Really excited bout the new tools for filming, cant wait to use them lol

This week and next will be very busy. Lots happening!! 
Framing is being custome built currently, hope to recieve next day or two..
Tent, will be ariving on the 6th..
Hitch, arriving on the 6th as well.
Jacks for stablizing, arriving Friday I believe.
Gas shocks to hold up lid, arriving Friday as well.

Ok, enough jibber jabber lol
Will be enjoying some time on the bike very soon:)
Im so very very ready!!

Be safe and we will chat soon

6.14 the day TL and beer run:)

Hello,
The box is now curing, couple days pull it out of the mold.


This is the day in time lapse




Final touch, had to mix up some additional resin to touch up a couple spots..
Mixed a minimum amount, however still had plenty to finish the handles on some yard tools:)
Also just a little knowledge on how it reacts on diff surfaces..
I know BORING lol




last 2 minutes of pt 1




Had to go for a beer run, decided to record, not a fan of the result, perhaps time lapse would be better?




Have a wonderful day, keep the rubber side down..
Chat soon,
Ken:)

6.6 done for the day:)

Looking forward to some time on the bike tomorrow:)
BTW, it was still almost 100 when did this last vid for the day..
Crazy!


6.6 block call feature and new cover for basket:)


I like the block call feature:)

And you may recognize the cover on the milk crate:)

I know I have a regular milk crate also? just cant seem to locate it:/
Im thinking about putting it on the seat, then gives me something to strap a bungee cord to..




6.6 Finally, something bike related lol

Had a weird noise in my speedometer head, was thinking my cable needed lubricated.
However after inspection discover it to be electronic so no cable...
Guessing the speedo will be going out soon:/


Removed bag to add my basket:)
need to be able to haul resin, 


figuring it out


mounting the basket



:) Cargo basket complete







6.6 ,Sun night frustration and this morning:)

Its been interesting working around the heat..
So the night shift has worked out ok.

This morning,
I showered after installing the floor and side panel layers, thinking i was getting on the bike to go get more resin...
however may just have them ship it..


I pushed play while laying in the floor, forgive a couple words:)
It actually turned out very nice:)




This was late last night and you may detect some frustration.

6.4 The day

Good afternoon,
It didn't take long for the heat to become a challenge..
last night was 10-3 prolly do the same tonight..




Doing my best to beat the rising temp..


Started the day a little less than thrilled



Cut the legs shorter so it will stand.. Its a must for the end panels..

6.3 Day recap

Good evening,

Progress coming along nicely:)
I will however be picking it back up sometime late this evening when it cools off..
The resin sets way to fast even with minumum catalist.



This next video is my first mixing of resin for the part:)
Focusing on the very tight corners, and cant have any air bubbles so taking very slow:)
It has my undivided attention, I actually cut off the last 10 min, but you get the idea..



I use "water" jugs as mixing containers.... 
So they all need to be cut and marked for quantity... 
And my special stick for measuring:)
Just one of the steps.



Lock layer all in:)





To darn hot!!










6.3 fast forward to current:)



Good morning,
Just going to fast forward:)


This was last nights update..



I was playing with an editor app, kinda cool:)


Chat soon:)
