The replacement data port is cut, and mostly sanded before test fitting it into the opening. Fits like a glove. Now to sand and fill any tiny blemishes before paint.
Took out the old PSI lenses and dismantled them. Ready for some new lenses!
With the old and new data port next to one another you can see how warped the old one has gotten. What should we do with the old one other than toss it out? It has a lot of years and history around it.
Patches started to receive some long needed TLC today.
A new data port is cast and ready for some last minute cleanup before painting it later this week. The old port is removed and any left over adhesive cleaned off.
Over the last 12 years we have been part or done 100s of charity events and a ton of volunteer work. From raising money for Make a Wish to Wounded Warrior, spending time with special needs kids, doing community events, and all on our own dime.

Things are starting to look up though as we get ready for next year!
