Well, looks like I'll be making my run without the front chin pan. Not enough materials to fix it up. I guess I'll rebuild it with some aluminum angle fer support and aluminum diamond plate fer rigidity next time.

One of the Harbor Freight LED taillights are freaking out and dying already.

I think you meant sailboard control arms? I didn't find anything remotely fer wakeboard control arms.

That's what they called them at the recyclers.

The things that hipsters ride on the Columbia River, at the mouth of the river that flows out of the Hanford Nuclear facility.

My Dads parents worked Hanford during the war and retired to Richland. Not buried there. And not true their gravesite can be found without the aid of lighting at night. A surplus Geiger counter is always sufficient.

Finally had a chance to address the chin pan and the lower gap cover. Made from a 1/16" thick smooth aluminum sheet.

I would love to see your pictures but photobucket says temporary unavailable. I just slapped one together for a 1900 mile trip and it saved me 5 mpg us and gave me room for more stuff. Looks like a win win. Now I want to make improvements.

After five posts, you can post pix. I don't know how many to start your own thread.

Photobucket stiffed everybody some time back. You can create an album under your profile here and it will always be [t]here.
