I'm down by Janesville. I'd be up for anything happening on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays, I just need a few hours advance notice since it's a couple hour drive up to where you guys are.

I'll plan to check this thread at least daily. I'm too used to there only being a meet-related post once every couple months...

I'm free this Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Getting an alignment on Friday, but I can shift that to a different day if need be.

I've got my car in fair enough condition for that. I would be game. Also I have a question, does anybody know off the top of their head what kind of spray paint to use on fabric? I don't think reupholstering my sunroof trim would be as easy as previously anticipated, but I remember reading people removing their rear deck that was sun faded and just spraying. but I don't recall them specifying the paint type... Thanks in advance

I am planning to do two or three 'rustic road' runs next year. I wasn't able to this year cause I am finishing my MBA, however, I am 43 days away from finishing that and will have oodles of free time with which I plan to terrorize country roads with.

plus school time and funds can go towards projects now!!

I used Duplicolor, but Colorbond also sounds like a good idea, perhaps even better than Duplicolor. There was just a thread on the Colorbond stuff in General a little while ago.

im down. saturday seems like fair weather (sunday better though, but i like my sundays for relaxing and doing nothing). if anybody wanted to meet by the fox river mall around noon, then maybe head to oshkosh, if anyone from farther away is going to go, i would do that. also maybe a nice scenic group country drive if anybody knows of anywhere really nice around this time of the year? i think you guys will like the suede work i did on my interior too.
