    I think that is the exact tape that I bought this afternoon thanks to your tip. Looks like I will be busy on Thursday and Friday cutting and taping!

    Any other pointers?

    When you cut yours, did you do it freehand or did you measure and cut? How about leaving a gap or cutting a flap for airflow or a peek hole??

    I was originally trained as a draftsman, so I measured every square inch. Measure twice, cut once!

    Looks great ... and precise!

    Does it get pretty dark in the pup when they are fully deployed? (Dark is good for me!)

    Depends on the time of year and how much area is covered by reflectix. Also whether it's day or night. [:D]

    I ordered my bed rail yesterday does that count as “doing something”? I mean, I was kinda tired after I made the call. Oh, and I had to spend $30 soooo there’s that

    It counts, every little bit helps. Holding the phone will wear you slam out too.:)

    If it’s any consolation, I did just hook the pup up and move it to the driveway. Today is National lawn mowing day....my wife says it’s a recognized holiday but I’m having a hard time believing the Great Lawn Guy is going to bring me presents after I’m done? We will see I spose...I mean I can trust her, right?

    In recognition of National Lawn Mowing Day, I am letting my lawn grow so it can more effectively be cut when I get home from camping!!

    Courtenay finished installing our new reading lights. Not quite a bright as the originals, but we can aim them so we're not blinded as we were by the many LEDs of the first ones.
    I put some new decals on the front window shield. We'd removed the original one and painted the shield with Krylon earlier this year. We can still see the shadow of the original from inside, and just how uneven our spray pattern was. I had a few extra stars, so put them on the door.
    I was able to remove the adhesive from one dealer decal I removed on our last trip. If it's not too hot tomorrow, I hope to remove the remainder of the large decals I began working on in April. We're planning to have the detailer come in the next couple of weeks, so want all the old adhesive, etc. gone before then.

    I bought a set of the Lynx levelers and purchased a bottle of the Camco Mold/Mildew remover for use next weekend when I have to set it up for the bed slide replacement. Figured I’d clean it while it’s up for the Labor Day trip. I also spray painted the BAL stabilizers because they were getting surface rust. While I was out I checked out a Flagstaff 21FBRS, dark side unit. Wow, that sucker was nice. It’s tempting....
