Tires, Truck Cover, Quilt

Riverton, Utah High 52 Low 41

Today started out clear and sunny. It was quite a bit warmer than yesterday. Late this afternoon it got cloudy again, and cooled off a bit. It brings to mind a saying, "If you don't like the weather this time of year, wait a few minutes". I did get the tire leak taken care of, sort of. It was one of my Pressure Pro senders leaking. I had it on tight, but the o-ring was not seating properly. After I got through, one of the other tires was down a little. I really tightened them, but will likely have to get new gaskets, if they sell them.

Working on the rails for the topper.
I then worked on the bed topper, and got it finished. It looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself. I did have to drill a hole in the bottom for the gas cap. After making some adjustments, it all works and locks as it should. I'm a lot happier with it than the old canvas one held down by Velcro.

Here you can see the hole I had to drill for the fuel cap. I now have one more of my to-dos finished.

I really like the looks of this cover.

I also worked on some loose moldings in side
the 5er, which had come loose on the ceiling. Hopefully what I did will hold better than the job they did from the factory. Good thing for Super Glue.

This quilt is just right for a lap quilt. I think Cindy does nice work.

A few posts ago, I said I would take some pictures of the quilt I was quilting. Cindy made it for a lap quilt on our trip to Alaska, and I got the quilting done a few days ago. I hope the pictures show the quilting enough.

Hopefully, you can see the quilting.

Tomorrow I'm working on a big king size quilt that will probably take 3 or 4 days to finish. It's for a Christmas present, and Cindy would like to have it finished before we leave for Alaska.

Still no word from the RV place on the cable for the slide. I found the parts on Amazon, and they dropped the price on the cable kits and the crimper,  so I ordered them. We shall see who gets the parts first, him or me. If I get everything first, I will still probably fix it myself, and just buy the extra kits from the repair shop.

That's it for today. Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Nice looking quilt.... Cindy does do a nice job of piecing the top together...... but your being a little modest about the quilting.. The quilting looks very elegant as well....
