Today, before the sun attacked me, I installed the center supporting PVC feet, and connected and secured the wiring. I made the PVC feet 1/4" taller than the frame height; giving a slight upward bow, rain run-off, and hold-down pressure on the feet. Now I have just the two leads ready for controller and battery connection.

Had some ceiling water damage from a poorly installed massive satellite receiver that the previous owner installed. Satellite ditched, leak repaired and all dry now for a couple seasons. Did a nice world map install today. Satisfied

Like that solution. I have similar damage. What did you use to hold the map up? Is it a fabric map. Where did you get it ?

Hi Kerry,

Thank you for the compliment.

I used a very lightweight fabric tapestry map, and push tacks to hold it in place. The ceiling material proved to be a really good hold with the tacks, plus stretching the material some creates side torque (holds in place as well). If any tacks fall out, I will graduate to screws, industrial velcro, etc.

Haven't been able to experience any adventures lately; 3 job changes since last August and some family responsibilities. But, things are beginning to settle down.

Took a few hours this morning to wash the PNW Winter off of her. She cleans-up pretty nicely, I think . Getting ready for my first NW Overland Rally attendance.

But first, going to be swapping out those fake ARBs for Baja Designs LP9 Pro Spot LEDs that I've had sitting in a closet for way too many months.
