Finally clouds in the desert after a week of heat waves up to 107 degrees...
combining my recent projects with amber lights, Baja spots.... and the Lowrider roofrack
It's nice how the Bajas fit in between the ambers without overlapping... like I planned it. Big light from 2x3 inch lights.

July and August during the monsoon season can have great skies... sunsets... bad weather is good weather for photos.
Sometimes it's right all over you, and sometimes it makes photos far away. Sometimes it's too close for comfort

When monsoon is about to hit... drive from Ajo Rd towards Desert Museum in the rain. It's a paved winding 1 lane road each way and monsoon forms temporary 8ft wide rivers flowing across the road... it's a fun ride for the family. Also by White Dove of the desert (San Javier Catholic church) area, it floods... nice route afterwards.

Thule bars and other Thule stuff is on sale now at EMS.com for 20% off.... prices already show the (original and also) discount price, if not, call them.
Discount codes don't work on Thule on EMS, this is one of the 4 times a year of Thule sale at EMS. And probably elsewhere, but not many places sell the retired line of SquareBar.... new one is LoadBar (with slits)....

I ordered 78 inch bars... the plain bars are getting hard to find. I will be cutting them to 65 inches like my old retired ones.
I ordered "INNO Square Base Bars for Roof or Truck Bed Rack Systems" on Amazon, got them, hated them, returned them. Cheap soft ends, cheap finish, not a good experience.

Thule is Thule. My 10 year old ends rusted slightly, I should have just cut off an inch off each end and kept them. They are hard to find now, 65" no longer made, 60" is longest, now ends have slits for attachments which may be helpful.

Some of you showed interest in the Thule mounts for the roof rack, so this info may help....

If you're after the aluminum roof rack, current turnaround is about 2 weeks. Metal possibly too.

Plain U bolts (they don't stick up this much)

Aluminum Lowrider weighed in at 18.19 lb today.
I thought it was over 20lb before, but I didn't use this scale, and I trust this scale. What I did before was use a bathroom scale with me and with and without the rack, and since then I have seen some discrepancies in its numbers for different items....... but not with this gravity scale!

Following pictures with 4 bags of 40-50lb soil each:
I am not just the owner, I am also a customer : )
I don't put up 150lb of stinky dirt on the roof just for the show

The white strip is an LED strip... work in progress. RGB colors with a controller, remote control, in the mail (this was step one, step 2 supplies are in the mail)


yes all that could go inside, maybe spill a little, but what if your inside was like this already:

Subtle lights up top

Not so subtle at night:
The white lights, when turned on, up top feel like side lights or reading lights.
