Snooter - thanks for all your hard work, MOTD was wonderful and everyhing ran smoothly. Here is a video report we made of MOTD on Miniology.com. As a newbie to MOTD I got some of the facts and locations wrong, but I hope I caught the mood. I will be prepared for next year

Thanks again to all that made this such a great experience!

Nicely done indeed. I met you two at the G4 tent.
OK........seems if a Shasta CA owner can make it to MOTD a guy from Bend OR should at least try to.
So Pooper, how long did it take to get there?
Just head toward NC now and you should be fine.
I know it is a haul for you west coasters, but it is an event to remember.
You are so right, its worth the trek. Great event. This next year we will start organizing a caravan from the west coast.
Scott I will start mapping out a route and figure about 350+ to 450 miles per day (2500 total) with some stops for points on interest, food, gas, and potty breaks. Maybe we can work a deal with a hotel chain like Best Western or Holiday Inn. Return can be optional for those wanting to take an alternate longer route. So figure about 6 days to get there.
Or if we had enough we could contract car hauler and take maybe 10 Minis at a time.
I just added a slew of shots to the Flickr album

Great idea. It would be nice to see more of the west cost folks at MOTD. I hope t can be worked out.
If you guys come all this way you should try to stay all week. I hear it's really nice early in the week when the roads are empty. We'll be there on Monday next year.
Robin and I drove up on Saturday and it was great.
Cool pictures. I saw you and I saw your car, but not at the same time, so I did not know it was you I saw, which I would have had you both been together at the same time. ut:
I like the way you had the trim rings on the dash wrapped. Did you do that?
I removed the chrome trimline and painted it with Krylon Fusion. The Krylon is made for shiny surfaces so it doesn't need any more prep then a good cleaning.
I still need to do the Tach, the paint takes about 6 - 8 hours to dry well enough to install it so I need a day that I won't be driving so that I can take the Tach apart, paint the ring and then get it back together 6 - 8 hours later.
So she won't be doing this any time soon :arf:
YUP, that's why it wasn't done in time for the Dragon.
Thanks Tigger. I may have to try that. Very cool idea.
If you try it, be sure to post pictures. If you re-use the pieces you already have, you really want to get them clean of any goo or dust before painting them. They need to be squeaky clean.
