Front St.

10 miles out of dayton,

I lost my co-pilot,

and my navigator!
Had to bring her home solo.

Word of the day.

Romans 12:9-19

9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord.

Word of the day.

Philippians 3:1-3

1 Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you. 2 Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh. 3 For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh—

V Twinn Expo...

Pretty much sucked, as usual! However, The American Motorcycle Museum did have a pretty nice display, and of course I rubbed elbows with all the usual suspects.

Split rockers, step 5

As Rat pointed out in a comment on step 4 (and rightly so, good eye!!), the tops of the rockers really need radii aswell. There is a cast radius on the inside of the rocker box that is visible in photo above. Using first a 4" grinder for roughing, work the top edges down to match this cast radius. Then tidy up with a 90° angle grinder and Scotch brite to suit. I also took the sharp edges off of the outside and bottom of each rocker box face.
