    Thank you,


    CBR?!?
    Oh geeze!

    I wouldn’t know what to do on your CBR. But you’re welcome to come over and take the sportster for a cruise.

    The CBR is a very docile motorcycle, it only goes as fast as you tell it to...it's also reasonably comfortable.

    Some info for while you're in London from someone local(ish). I'm going to suggest visiting either Portobello Road (Notting Hill area) or Camden Lock/Market (North London). They both have their merits, but personally I prefer Camden. From Paddington if you walk along Regents Canal to Little Venice you can get a narrow boat to Camden, not cheap but an experience. There are actually two to choose from.

    I can’t ever sleep on planes, either. LA to Japan, Phoenix to Athens, Las Vegas to Vienna, couldn’t sleep on any of them! Good luck with your trip, please share a few pics if you can!

    El pollo loco is just fine, but if I’m out with the guys and have a guest in town, and we’re going to dinner, I’ll take anything else before I’d choose EPL, I mean, we were blocks from little Italy and @simbaboy HAS to have EPL.

    I could go without EPL forever, but I couldnt go without Del taco

    Hey VI, little help here..plz..

    Trying to keep my old skool 85 Ford E150 Van alive ....used to haul my dirt bikes..
    The roof gutters are leaking and I have a good start on the repair, but don't want to screw up all my prep work done most of last Saturday.
    I got all the rust and loose filler I can find out of the gutters.
    I wanted to use an acid etch solvent on the rust but got sticker shock...50 bucks for a quart when I only have maybe 2 feet of gutter to treat.
    Got talked into a rattle can etch / primer and went for it after removing rust and paint and sanding.
    So, it's painted in acid etch primer.
    Not sure of the next step.
    Gut tells me to paint it the vans final paint color, and then add white gutter sealer after the paint dries . Van is the cream, off white color.
    I might have this bass awarks...add sealer now then paint over the sealer??....which I am having a hard time with..painting over a semi wet sealer??...

    What to the real auto body guys do?

    I lost my dry inside garage winter parking and it's out in the Pacific North Wet elements now..
    If you have a favorite gutter sealer, I am all ears....just don't tell me JB Weld like the kid at NAPA told me.

    Ride Fast, Take Chances...

    I’m not a body guy, but I been around the block a few times.

    If it was me, I’d seal it up, then get ahold of TCPglobal for some of their tintable bed liner and shoot all the rain gutters and the roof in the closest color they offer. Probably never have to touch em again.

    @DiggerD you can turn the air pressure up on the compressor and shoot the stuff quite smoothly to where it’s more a heavy orange peel than the bedliner texture. It’s good shit.
