Down the tubes. Meggy and I set aside Sunday to see the sites. Usually I get close to the Convention Center...See how busy it is and decide to go have drinks and lunch instead. This year I was looking fwd to strolling around and checking everything out. Tons to see...Tons of people...as always.
Meggy scored some solid owl merchandise...An owl thumb drive and 2 owl books. She got each of the artists to sign her books and bust out owl sketches for her. Cool shit...they were both super nice dudes. I picked up a letter pressed print and 2 poster prints...Adding to my ever growing collection of unframed, not displayed fantastic art. Someday...someday...
The highlight for sure was seeing Terry Tate The Office Linebacker...If you know our good friend Andrea then you know her connection with Terry...err uhh...Mr. Tate. We had to grab her an autograph...Freaking Hilarious! Glad we went over to the autograph section...we ALMOST skipped it.
At the end of our day I stared to turn in to a roaming zombie stuck in the flow of masses...so we got out of the ASAP. I left $12 in my truck to pay for parking cause I knew we'd empty out my wallet on purchases...and we did a damn good job...I had $1 left in my wallet...Pretty solid.
If there is anything that Murph likes to sleep/shed on more than any black article of clothing or the clothes you lay out for yourself...It's plastic bags and random free shit from the Con...He's stoked!

@ Borona Drag Strip. The day started off a little rough for Bud and his lady. The fuel pump went out in her Plymouth. That left Bud and DJ on the side of the road. We showed up on our way to the show...threw on a tow strap and towed it up the hill and then down the hill to the gas station right before the Borona Casino...Pretty sketchy...but it all worked out.
The show was good...a lot of nice rides...good vibes. We showed up later in the afternoon and caught a few runs of the drags. I had really good intentions of snapping photos of that...but before I knew it they had wrapped it up.
Solid show...I'll be back next year.

Saturday afternoon/early evening...I got the Passenger side door all wrapped up. The window trimmings all dialed in for the Drivers side. I just need to slap the glass in there and snap in the door panel. Looks awesome. I was going to roll with the arm rests...but the more I look at it... the more I am thinking it looks super clean without them. If you need an armrest...stick your arm out the window.

Knocked out a few more details on the bug this weekend...It was a warm one! Got the passenger side window all back in action. Door weatherstripping installed. All the door checks and buzzers dialed in. Headlight plugs spliced in with surgical precision by the lovely Ms. Megan Pierce. Getting closer! Looking soooo freaking good too! Come on more spare time and money!
